At 31 years old and 21 stone Toby Field decided he had to get fit and lose some weight.
“At the age of 31 years old, my weight had crept up to 133.9kg (21st 1lb 3oz), I was super morbidly obese and I needed to finally do something about it. I got a bicycle and hope this will be the start of the rest of my life! Thanks to my employer I was able to get a bike at low cost through their cycle to work scheme. After a number of my colleagues pointing out (just because I was fat) that it’s a cycle to work scheme and they expected me to do just that, I took the opportunity to give it a serious go and try and get fit and fight the fat.”
