“It was wonderful to be selected to be on the programme and to work alongside an expert like Paula who has motivated me to make changes in my life.”

‘You Are What You Eat’ , presented by Trisha Goddard and Dr Amir Khan, follows two people looking to change their eating habits over an initial eight-week period.

In each episode, Trisha Goddard, Dr Amir and a team of experts motivate two unhealthy eaters to change their lifestyles and become the healthiest versions of themselves.

The results from the episode with Helen and Paula won’t be shared until the programme airs but instructor Paula has explained what a great experience it was.

Managing director, John Fletcher added: “Every day across our centres we see local residents of Northampton working hard to lose weight, to keep fit and making changes to their lives.

“To see one of these journeys on national television is very special and we are delighted that our services and our centres could be part of this story.”
