After losing 40kgs personal trainer Sam won't revert back

THERE'S a slim chance of personal trainer Sam Fowler reverting back to his old ways.

"I was morbidly obese ... I was drinking a dozen beers a night and smoking two packs of cigarettes a day," the 25-year-old said.

Tipping the scales at 118kg, Sam didn't realise he was overweight until a remark by a mate made him think differently.

Now 40kg lighter and working at Hub Total Fitness in Sun Valley, Sam is keen to change the mindset of his 60 clients.

On Wednesday, debate surrounding State Government plans to introduce warning labels on junk food packaging resurfaced.

"There definitely needs to be tighter restrictions on junk food packaging," Sam said.
