ActiVeman Focus and Thermolean

Not long ago I told you that, in an unusual mid-life crisis, my other half was embarking on the Zero to Hero white collar boxing programme – a hyper-intensive 10 week training programme culminating in a spectacular fight night. To help him along he was trying out some cool new ActiVeman supplements from BioSynergy - Focus   (£19.99) – a “daily supplement to maintain a healthy heart and cardiovascular system and ensure you maintain your focus as the combination of omega 3 & 6 (DHA & EPA) supports brain function” and Thermolean  (£29.99) – a “daily supplement containing a unique blend of ingredients which not only improve energy levels but improve your metabolism.”

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from watching his progress, it is the massive difference between “fit” and “fighting fit”. He needed to be in the best possible shape – ideally lean as a whippet, but much more muscular. Already pretty healthy at home, he didn’t make many changes to his diet other than ditching alcohol and watching the sugar, and his initial weight loss was slow but steady.

I confess I was a bit dubious about how a few capsules could help in such a short space of time, but was open to anything (legal) that might give him a helping hand as he arrived home, week after week, sporting bruises, black eyes and sore ribs. Anyway, I am happy to report that my very own Hero (and official ex-Zero) was delighted with the products.

He started taking the supplements just around the time I would have expected his weight loss to plateau, but to my huge surprise it dropped steadily – and more quickly – after he started to take it, to the point that I noticed a definite change in his physique in the last few weeks before the fight. Ladies, he looked hawt.

He also reported that his energy levels were consistently high, despite training seven days a week, sometimes twice a day, including some unpleasantly early mornings. It was exhausting to watch, but he just kept going like the famous battery-powered bunny – even after the fight was over and the adrenaline should have drained away.

Of the two products, the one that impressed him most was the Thermolean and he plans to buy some more now that he’s finished the jar. And the good news is that he can – the whole ActiVeman range is range is now available from Boots.

As for the fight, although he lost on points, he put up a fearsome fight. After three bruising rounds he was still buzzing and wasn’t even out of breath. He may have been smaller than his opponent, but there’s a lot of truth in the saying that it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. Creaking ribs aside, there’s life (and, I’m afraid to say, fighting spirit) in the old dog yet.

And if you want to know more about Zero to Hero (and to see my own Hero sparring in training), here’s a cheeky video:
