Three time FIFA World Footballer of the year, Ronaldo is going to appear on Medid Certa, a Brazilian version of Celebrity Fit Club.
After retiring last year, the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan player is ready to get back into shape. Marcio Atalla is the guy training and helping Ronaldo get fit and ripped again. He knows that Ronaldo will be a great inspiration to many who were fans of the famous footballer.
Many may wonder how a footballer can fall out of shape; Marcio Atalla explains that:
You may have had a physically active job but if you stop and adopt a new lifestyle then your body will feel it and react to it. The exercises that keep you in shape need to be part of your routine forever.
The show hopes that Ronaldo will inspire more people to stay active. Even those who are already physically fit need to maintain some sort of exercise regimen throughout life, Ronaldo is a prime example.
And how does Ronaldo feel about being on the show and facing his struggle in the public eye? He feels that the extra pressure of a television show will keep him motivated. He recently told iG Gente:
I’m enjoying participating in the program, because it is an incentive for me to lose weight… Maybe if I didn’t have the pressure of everybody watching me trying to lose weight then I wouldn’t be able to do it… All I can say is that I will work hard, be persistent and not give up until I reach my recommended weight…I want people to be inspired by me.
Ronaldo has begun filming the program already and will continue his weight loss journey for three months. The first episode airs this weekend in Brazil. It is a change to see that even famous footballers struggle with real-world problems. Hopefully Ronaldo continues to work hard and meet all his goals, while inspiring his fans to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
