Actor-singer Markki Stroem recalled the days when he went through a health crisis during the start of the pandemic. Stroem turned anxious when the pandemic started, as stated on his Instagram page yesterday, June 21.
Stroem revealed that he was in the “emergency room twice for symptoms of [COVID-19].”
“At that time, they did not have swab tests. Since my symptoms were not as harsh, and they [didn’t] have many swabs, they had to send me home. Seems like we understand it more now, but back then… I was SCARED FOR MY LIFE,” he said.
Stroem recalled what his dad told him, “survival of the fittest,” which motivated him and led him to work out daily to boost his immunity.
In the end, he survived the ordeal with the support of the two “finest coaches” he ever worked with.
He thanked @coachrayt8fit for being with him since the start of his health journey.
“I thank you for the daily motivation and meal prep. You have pushed me to try gymnastics and climb mountains. Thank you for also joining me in my pandemic fitness show to help people get fit while at home. ‘Fitness Tips For Lazy Peeps’ on @cornerstone TV,” he said.
He then commended one @culverpadilla for helping him understand his body.
“Its not all about getting tired. [It’s] about form, doing the exercises accurately, balance and a whole lot of determination, to name a few,” he said.
After thanking other who were instrumental in his health journey, he shared that he is also into chelation therapy to remove impurities in his blood.
“It was a grueling process, but not IMPOSSIBLE! If you put your mind to it you can move mountains.” he said. “It is never too late to start. You can be 34, and have your dream body… You just have to put in the WERK.”
Stroem recently released a single, “Sanity,” where he touched upon the subject of mental health. JB
