Rob & Susie’s 4 x 4 x 48 Challenge!

By Rob Czub

I’ve taken on a challenge to Do it for Heart!

It was August 2020 when I had some extreme stomach pains which eventually I listened to my fiancé and saw a doctor, and boy was that the best decision I ever made! 

We did my normal checks i.e. bloods and stomach ultrasounds and it was identified that I had some serious issues to address. I had, extremely high cholesterol and triglycerides, my liver was covered in think fats, my pancreas was not functioning correctly, and found out about the family health issues with heart attacks, which I was on the verge of having.

The doctor advised me to immediately:

- stop smoking, which I did cold turkey after smoking for 20 years. 

- change my diet, I became a vegetarian and stopped eating all the junk foods!!!

- start exercising, I joined F45 The Ponds which was the best decision I ever made!! The absolute best owners, trainers and community of people! 

- Lose 20KG, 6 months later and I have achieved this goal!

My life now is all about health and fitness and my goals are to tell my story and inspire others to go get check ups cause you just don't know what is happening beneath your skin. If I didn't get a simple check up at my GP, I would have had a heart attack by now, and may not be enjoying every day with my fiancé and my 4 beautiful kids! 

So what are we doing??? 4 x 4 x 48:

- Every 4hrs

- we will run 4 miles (6.2KM)

- for a total of 48hrs
