Hairy Bikers come to Pembrokeshire

By Observer Reporter in Events

A Pembrokeshire health club has joined forces with the Hairy Biker’s Diet Club to inspire men and women to shed the pounds.

Created by Si King and Dave Myers, aka The Hairy Bikers, the club welcomes its new members via a new partnership with Simply Balance, part of Celtic Holiday Parks.

The pair have each shed over three-stone in weight and are helping others to shift the pounds through the Hairy Bikers’ Diet Club.

Simply Balance, which represents Celtic Holiday Parks’ wellness and fitness division and is based at Croft Country Park, is the first business in the UK to introduce the live Hairy Bikers Diet Club.

It will be launched at Noble Court on March 20, at 7.30 pm.

Those who sign up, at a monthly fee of £27, will be given a three-month diet plan, online support, weekly weigh-ins and will be supported with a live chats with Si and Dave at one of the weekly weigh-in sessions.

Simply Balance’s wellness manager, Amber Lort-Phillips, said having the ongoing support from the pair through live Skype conversations would be tremendous motivation for the members.

“It’s an interactive diet with those who have developed the plan and recipes where our signed-up members can ask questions directly through the Skype calls,’’ she said.

There will also be online recipes, a recipe book signed by Si and Dave, videos and fitness tutorials from the Hairy Bikers.

“Those who want to attend the launch have to book, but ii is free to attend and we will be serving nutritious and scrummy nibbles,” said Amber.

Members will then attend a weekly session from a choice of three - one will run during the day and two in the evening.

Amber stressed that the club was not focused on just women. Men’s health and fitness is key to the Hairy Bikers’ philosophy, as the pair have lost over six-stone between them, she explained.

As part of the programme, Gerald Brace, of Simply Balance, will host a men-only diet group.

Amber said the group approach to losing weight had been proven by the longevity of existing diet clubs that offered a similar methodology.

“These groups are long standing because they work; it is proven that if people go for a weekly weigh-in and have the support of others, they are more likely to achieve their goal and lose weight.”
