Darren continued, " I sort help for my mental health issues, I gave up chocolate (extremely hard for me to do that!!!) I gave up drinking for a while and I signed up to F45 Camberwell Junction to get some fitness back."
"Fast forward to now, I’ve completed an F45 eight week challenge and lost 16.1kg, I completely overhauled my eating by signing up to ChefGood meals for the challenge, I haven’t touched a beer and I feel I’ve taken back control and direction of my life. Signing up to F45 was the motivation I needed."
"It gave me purpose, it gave me hope. It gave me back the direction I was desperately searching for. I am forever grateful for all the team at F45 Camberwell Junction. Thank you guys!!"
Friends, fans and loved ones flocked to Darren's page and congratulated him for the big turnaround.
Among the kind comments, My Kitchen Rules star Ash Pollard posted, "Christ Daz 🙌🏻 Good for you."
"But I'm focusing on my two daughters who are my number one priority. Please respect our privacy while we move on."
The Block couple from Melbourne, who are affectionately known as Daz and Dea, were known for their constant bickering.
They appeared on two seasons of The Block — 2014's Glasshouse and then again in 2015's Triple Threat.
In 2015, they made $835,000 profit and then earned an additional $100,000 for winning the series, bringing their total to $935,000, winning the most prize money out of any Block team.
