Former Emmerdale star Tom Lister shares body transformation after six months of workouts

Former Emmerdale star Tom Lister has shared his body transformation after six months of diligent workouts.

Tom, who played Carl King on the soap, showed the transformation by posting a before and after on Instagram.

"Contrary to what some people may think this is not something I wish to post or indeed share with the wider world! But as you can see (or have already seen if you’ve been rolling your eyes at my gym stories recently!) … over the last six months I have been working with online coach @leejonespt," he wrote in his caption.

"I started working with Lee back in September as I was feeling pretty low in myself. Covid hit me HARD in terms of lack of work opportunities, leaving me feeling a bit bereft and low on self esteem and motivation. This resulted in me piling on the weight and feeling pretty shitty all round.

"I had my reservations about online coaching and whether it would work and I’ve never really been a keen gym person. But Lee is brilliant. I loved working with him. It was just so easy and basically it’s a bit like having a cheerleader in your pocket!

"I loved the accountability and how he tailored everything to me - from the workouts to the meal planning, to giving me a kick up the arse when I needed it!!" he continued.

"I have lost over 16kg (2.5 Stone in old 💰) and I haven’t been this lean for over 20 years. We haven’t finished yet so we will keep going but I just wanted to thank @leejonespt for all he’s done for me and getting me out of the rut I was in.

"I feel healthy and strong and I’ve got some exciting work coming in at the start of this year too, so all in all it was 100% the right decision. Can’t recommend Lee enough if you’re thinking you need a nudge to help you along," he added.

Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV1, and streams on ITVX.
