100 Boston Turnpike - Rte 9, Shrewsbury, MA 01545
The new Planet Fitness of Shrewsbury is inviting you to their Grand Opening Celebration. On Monday, January 7th, Planet Fitness will host Patrick House, winner of the NBC hit show “The Biggest Loser”. After dropping almost 200 pounds to win as the "The Biggest Loser", Patrick House is scheduled to drop by the brand new 20,000 square foot fitness Planet Fitness to raise awareness about healthy living.
House, who's a former college football player from Mississippi, says he slowly gained weight after a serious injury. Around the age of 28, House tipped the scales at 420 pounds and was told by a doctor that he would probably suffer a heart attack sometime in the next five years.
He was on the fast track to an early death but all that changed in 2010 when House joined season 10 of "The Biggest Loser". Thanks to six straight months of exercise and a healthy diet, Patrick dropped almost half his body weight and won $250,000.00 for his first place finish.
His body isn't the only thing that's changed. It's been a total transformation for the Vicksburg, Mississippi native who went from being unemployed to working as a spokesperson for Cybex Workout Equipment and Planet Fitness.
"It has been such an amazing experience for me to realize just what I've done and to be able to share it with others all over the country” House said. "While doing that, I challenge, motivate and inspire them to begin their own weight loss journey and hopefully they'll join me in taking that first step towards living a healthier lifestyle."
His new role helping others is what will bring him to White City Plaza Shrewsbury on Monday night, January 7th as Planet Fitness is hosting a meet and greet with the national celebrity. Planet Fitness of Shrewsbury is located at 100 Boston Turnpike Shrewsbury, MA. Come hear Patrick and get a tour of the new club.
