Former Big Brother Naija 6 housemate, Niyi Lawal has warned gym goers to take medical check-ups before engaging in gym exercises.
He stressed the need for regular heart testing by a medical professional for people that attend the gym often.
The reality tv star shared the news of a 28-year-old man who died in the gym as a result of high blood pressure, and refusal to take his medication against doctor’s advice.
High blood pressure is a prevalent serious medical condition suffered by many these days as a result of different lifestyle choices. It can start from obesity, lack of regular physical activity, sedentary lifestyle, hypertension etc
It is a silent ticking time bomb because it frequently shows no symptoms, and requires consistent medical attention to fight it.
