A guy has got ripped sculpting the ultimate ‘revenge body’ after finding out that his long-term girlfriend had been cheating on him.


26-year-old Dwayne O’Connor from Derby lost an amazing three stone seven pounds and shed three quarters of his body fat when he discovered that his girlfriend of four years was having an affair.

At the time Dwayne was working as a fitness instructor but after finding out the secret he lost his love for both his job and exercise in general.

He spoke toThe Daily Mail how his transformation began saying:


It all started five years ago, I was a young man in a long-term relationship.

I was working as a local fitness instructor, I also played basketball regularly and lifted weights three times a week just to keep myself healthy and look decent.

My relationship was four years old at this point but just like most love stories it ended in heartbreak.

I came to realise my partner was having an affair and once I confronted her about the situation she posted her keys through the door and said it was over.

My confidence, pride and self-worth were at an all-time low. I stopped playing basketball and I even stopped going to the gym other than to go to work.

To cope with the break-up Dwayne turned to junk food and was soon piling on the pounds being ‘physically, mentally and emotionally at breaking point’.

After his friends helped him get back to the gym for a few sessions, Dwayne decided that enough was enough and decided to overhaul his lifestyle.

In just six months Dwayne lost three stone and seven pounds hitting the gym hard and reverting back to healthy eating.

He recalled:

I was still overweight, but I was lifting five times a week getting stronger all the time and most of all I was getting my confidence back.

Six months might seem fast but because I was a fitness instructor before the break up, I already had a few years of training behind me, so I had a decent amount of muscle already.

The motivation came from the lack of control I felt in my personal love life. When a situation happens like an affair there’s not much you can do about it. You just have to sit there and let it happen.


Currently preparing for his first ever fitness competition, the UKBFF Men’s physique division show, Dwayne offered advice to anyone who is hoping to follow a similar transformation to him.

He concluded:

When it comes to self-confidence and personal development every hour is an hour where you can do something to be better than you were the previous hour. Anybody can do it they just need to be structured and consistent, have faith and work hard.

I went on a journey looking for progression instead of perfection and that’s where I found balance. I’m much more comfortable within myself and I try to send that positivity out to others.

Inspirational stuff!
