Darren Clarke sheds weight with educogym

2015 03 466081902

European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke is in the best shape he's ever been, thanks to an intensive 12-day exercise and nutrition programme through educogym.


The 46-year-old, winner of the Open Championship in 2011, teamed up with educogym following a chance meeting with CEO Jamie Myerscough at a charity golf day in 2013 and, if you’ve seen Darren Clarke in action over the past few weeks, it seems as though the programme has worked wonders for the Northern Irishman.

Clarke lost 50lbs of fat in just 13 weeks with the help of educogym, which uses techniques based on a university research study where participants are dramatically transformed in a very short space of time.
"I honestly couldn’t believe how little effort was involved" - Darren Clarke

Through the study, on average the participants lost 7.5lbs of fat and regained 3lbs of muscle tissue in just 12 days, by exercising for 15-20 minutes a day and maintaining a low glycaemic diet.

As a result of Darren Clarke’s educogym programme, he certainly looks a lot fitter and, while results on the course so far in 2015 haven’t maybe been what he would have expected, the one-time major winner has increased his swing speed from 112mph to 117mph, with his ball speed rising to 173mph – faster than it’s ever been.

Speaking about the programme, Darren Clarke said: “I honestly couldn’t believe how little effort was involved. During the initial 12 days, I noticed a dramatic change straight away as simply adjusting my nutrition caused me to lose weight.

“That initial weight loss and then the dramatic change during the 12-day programme really motivated me to keep going. I’m not a patient guy so if I don’t see results instantly I can lose interest pretty quickly.”

And Clarke isn’t alone in benefiting from educogym, with singer Robbie Williams using the system to get into shape for his Let Me Entertain You tour, which begins later this month.

Darren Clarke finished T15 at the Tshwane Open and finally looks to have regained some form after a dreadful start to 2015, where he had missed three cuts in four events prior to the European Tour event at Pretoria Country Club.
