‘We Need a New Mattress’ – Stamina Boosting Campaign Transformation Leader Thomas Hynes Has Romantic Benefits
Thomas Hynes, the head of Operation Transformation, said he and his wife Eileen resembled an “impromptu young couple” in the latest installment of the RTÉ fitness and health program.
It looks like pizza maker Granard (50) is reaping all sorts of benefits from her new fitness plan, including adding some excitement to her love life.
This week’s episode showed him focusing on his relationship as the couple decided to opt for a casual date night on Wednesday and enjoy a night out in a restaurant.
He says he “always feels like a teenager around Eileen” when he talks about getting his mojo back.
Eileen said they would “need a new mattress after this” as she praised his new life – especially his stamina.
When Thomas went to the studio to get his weekly checkup results, host Kathryn Thomas said with a smile: “I can see that you and Eileen are benefiting a lot from this plan.”
Fitness expert Karl Henry says it’s “wonderful to see” the pair are raising the bar in their romance.
Thomas’ metabolic age has now dropped from 65 to 60, while he’s lost another 3 pounds, lifting him to 13 and a half pills.
Men’s health and the importance of regular checkups are also emphasized, especially in the over 45s.
Last week, a cardiologist told Thomas that the heart attack he suffered four years ago could be due to a genetic condition.
Given that his brother, Phelim, also has a serious heart condition, having suffered a stroke eight years ago when he was 42 years old, Dr Sumi Dunne advised them both to get genetic testing.
She said 10 to 20 per cent of the Irish population has a genetic condition that causes their cholesterol levels to be abnormally high, leading to an increased risk of heart problems.
