Local dad thanks 1Life at Woughton for helping him get fit after heart attack.
A local dad has heaped praise on fitness staff at The Depot in Woughton on the Green for helping him shed 6 stone after a heart attack.
Sean Munt, 54, is in the best shape of his life after exercising regularly at the 1Life at Woughton facility for the last 8 months.
The local MacIntyre carer was determined to get fit after piling on the pounds following a heart attack that nearly killed him. And with racks, rigs, benches, bars and ropes available at The Depot, the venue offers the all-in-one strength and conditioning workouts that Sean needed.
He said: “I had been working up to 18 hours a day, drinking alcohol and not eating properly and I had a heart attack – I actually flatlined.
“I needed to lose weight and someone told me about the classes at The Depot so I gave it a try.
“The staff have been so helpful in modifying my diet, giving me exercises to get rid of the stiffness in my arthritic hip, suggesting natural remedies such as Himalayan salt drinks, and I’ve lost 6 stone! People now don’t recognise me from eight months ago.
“Instructors like Will Lock and Dave Punter have been like Gods to me – I can’t thank them enough.
“The Depot has changed my life. I don’t need medication any more and my heart doctor says I’m now fitter than him!”
Sean is planning to put his new-found fitness to good use by completing various sporting challenges for charity in 2018.
