Karen Hockney from Onboard Online speak to James Cracknell and Fitter Stronger
‘After a brain injury, you react differently,’ explains James, who is currently starring in ITV’s sports reality series Eternal Glory. ‘My kids had one dad for six years and have had a different one since. You get angry, you are not as articulate. I’ve been left with epilepsy and I’ve had a number of seizures after which you can’t drive for a year. You lose a lot of empathy and motivation.
‘But it’s something that happened to me rather than something that is going to define the rest of my life. If you respond to setbacks by setting a goal and working towards it, you can achieve more than you thought you could.’
That’s pretty much the ethos behind James’s latest project Fitter, Stronger, a weekend health and fitness retreat at Chewton Glen in the New Forest where anyone from exercise fanatics, people coming back from illness or injury and first timers can learn more about nutrition and the benefits of an active lifestyle.
