Unfit Arg admits he’s finding it “difficult to breathe” in new workout video

The star is trying to lose 10 stone!

James Argent has shared his first big workout since vowing to lose 10 stone, but he admits it was a struggle.

The TOWIE star, who has seen weight pile on in recent months, posted a video from his local boxing gym, where he worked up a sweat with his trainer.

The 31-year-old threw some decent punches in the clip, but he admitted he is so unfit at the moment that he found it “difficult to breathe”.

He is determined to shed a mammoth amount of weight, after being warned he is on “death row”.

He captioned his latest post with: “And so the journey begins…

“It’s not easy to move & I found it difficult to breathe but I’ve made a start. I’m excited to compare this video to one in a few months time! 🥊

“Thanks for the love & support! #hardwork #dedication ❤️ #achesandpains.”

Earlier this week, Arg appeared on This Morning to talk openly about his weight battle.

He was advised by TV’s Dr Ranj to lose a whopping 10 stone and 17 inches from his waist to reach a healthy BMI.

A stunned Arg admitted on the show: “It’s quite scary. Ten stone is a hell of a lot of weight, it seems like a marathon.

“It’s not going to be a quick fix.”
