Ted Harrison - Vital Exercise

Ted Harrison has been a personal trainer for over 30 years and is the owner and founder of Vital Exercise, his personal training studio in Essex. Ted uses HIT-influenced, science-based training principles to help his clients achieve their goals. His client’s have been able to obtain astonishing results with less than 30-minutes gym time per week. Don’t believe me? Ted was able to achieve his physique in the pictures below with less than 1 hour in the gym per week. Not bad for 53….

Please note: Sorry for the echo on Ted’s side. I have figured out how to prevent this from happening in future. Basically don’t use “callnote” software because it doesn’t seem to happen on Audacity.
