Erin Napier is praising her husband Ben’s commitment to fitness.
The Home Town star took to Instagram on Thursday to share photos of Ben taken in their barn gym, which includes exercise equipment, floor mats and a yoga ball. In the first photo, Ben is seen readig a book on the ground while his toddler daughter Mae crawls on top of him. The pair's eldest daughter Helen, 5, looks on from an exercise ball. The second pic is a solo one of Ben, posing proudly for the camera.
Erin captioned the post, "Somehow despite having a torn rotator cuff and us barging in and slowing him down daily, [Bem] has been building a gym in the barn and lost many lbs. and holy smokes what a babe with good blood pressure."
Erin's followers also sent their congrats to Ben in the comments section. One wrote, "Way to go Ben weight loss is difficult, but when you see progress it’s so rewarding." Another added, "Glad he is building his strength and getting healthier. He gives me hope to get myself to a healthy weight."
Ben's weight loss journey began in 2018, around the time that the couple welcomed their first daughter, he previously told Country Living in 2019.
"Having Helen made me want to be healthier so I could be around a lot longer and see her grow up and see her whole life," he explained. He shared that, at the time, he had lost 55 pounds in the course of that one year. However, as Erin noted in her Instagram post, that journey was somewhat sidetracked by an injury.
Erin also praised her husband’s health journey in a February 2023 tweet, which she posted shortly after an episode of their show Home Town aired. She shared a photo of him alongside the caption, "Ben has lost a lot of lbs. since this episode, I’d just like to brag on him a little."
