A slimming group is being launched by a floor layer who is hoping more men will be encouraged to lose weight to get fit and healthy when they realise it is not just a thing for women.

Nik Penn said: “I am hoping that with a male consultant it will encourage more men to join and successfully lose weight once they realise that it’s not just for women.

“There are less than 10 per cent of consultants that are male. So it is quite unusual.”

Nik has been inspired to open a Slimming World group in March after losing three and a half stone.

He said: “A little over a year ago I joined Slimming World as a member here in March, and since then I have lost 3.5 stone to get to my own personal achievement target without being hungry and eating loads of lovely foods which you wouldn’t believe.
