Elgin based Fitness & Lifestyle Coach, Doug Nevins, has successfully cycled from London to Paris in just two days, jointly raising a grand total of £35,000 in aid of the charity, Diabetes UK.
Having been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes from 17 months old, Doug Nevins, now 22, joined other fellow diabetics on this trip to raise awareness of the condition.
Doug explains the wider and personal impact of this challenge,
“This trip has meant a great deal to me personally as I have had the opportunity to meet lots of fellow Type 1 diabetics who were all so open about talking about their condition. I have learnt so much in the past two days about the condition and which I will be applying to the management of my own diabetes.”
Having experienced conflicting information not only for diabetes but health, fitness and diet as a whole, Doug’s ambition is to raise awareness and knowledge surrounding diabetes and other health conditions through his new venture, to be based in Elgin, called ‘Fitison’. This new business aims to provide a fully bespoke fitness coaching service with a strong holistic focus on integrated health which includes health, fitness, nutrition, lifestyle and overall wellbeing.
