As a popular bodybuilder who builds his fame through promoting a healthy diet, fitness, and active lifestyle, many of his fans were surprised when JZ Woo, a fitness guru from Taiwan, suffered a stroke in his 30s.

JZ Woo who is also known as Muscle Daddy among his fans is a household name in his country as a famous award-winning bodybuilder.

He is also a successful businessman and owns a gym, JZ Fitness, together with his wife, a fellow bodybuilder and fitness guru, Melody Wan

However, Woo’s life suddenly took an unexpected turn when he was taking a nap at home earlier this month.

Prior to the incident, he decided to take a nap after dropping his son off at his school. It was then that Melody realised there was something wrong with her husband and she immediately rushed Woo to the hospital.

Fortunately, Woo managed to get to the hospital in time where the doctors diagnosed him with a stroke

今年,對我們家來說,是格外珍貴與特別的中秋節。我們在公園曬太陽、在醫院內一起吃摩斯,兒子在醫院寫功課……都是生活的小事,但是,這就是最幸福的事。能夠全家人,一起平平凡凡的過著生活,看似是你我的每一天,但,差一點,成為我這輩子…

There was a dangerous blood clot in his brain’s blood vessel. As a result, Woo temporarily lost control of the right side of his body.

While the stroke may come as a huge surprise to his fans, Melody explained that Woo’s family has a history of excessive blood clotting

陪伴中風後病人康復過程中,每日都像等待開樂透。 怎麼說呢?可能由於中風後腦傷範圍有可能擴大、或者醫生看多了病人千奇百怪的變化,因人而異狀況顯示差異多……所以他們都會回答家屬:「我們再觀察看看」。雖然家屬的心總因為這樣的答案而懸著,但仔細想想,似乎也沒有其他適合的回答了。 我們再觀察看看!於是,頭幾日每天都在等開獎,真的很怕中獎,中了老公「回不去了」的獎。 但現在可以邊打週記邊覺得好笑,是因為老公幸運的,主要復健就是運動神經恢復,而他還是那個可以「聽我說話」「陪我聊天」「一起講白爛笑話」「一起盯兒子」「一起吃美食」的筋肉爸爸。 於是有了以下幾則好笑的記事。 (一)十隻鳥 加護病房當晚家屬探視時間,我進去看稍微清醒的老公。他話講得很含糊,說:「噁們……家……十個……鳥,那十個鳥……要……餵。」 「啊…什麼鳥?我們沒有養鳥啊!」我邊哭邊說,內心擔憂……他是不是智能受損…… 「啊就偶、偶和、兒子的鳥啊!」(他還生氣這樣) 「你是說我們家那幾隻甲蟲嗎??」我恍然大悟 「四啦!」他講完就睡覺了…… #原來甲蟲比愛我還重要 #我每天奔波之餘都不敢怠慢家裡的甲蟲大爺們 #沒事不要亂樣寵物 (二)太空船 第二天早上,去加護病房探望老公,期望他清醒一點。 結果,他沒有睡,還深情的望著我,說:「累個……理記得,偶們一起,搭來地球的太空船嗎?有兩艘,一艘壞惹……那個好底……在哪?」 「啊……老公,你在講銃夢的故事嗎?(筋肉爸爸最愛的漫畫)」我都快哭了,他是已經神遊到夢裡了嗎? 「啊那個太空船,在哪以……?」他眼神渙散的問。 #中風後的躁動整死枕邊人 #到底有多愛太空故事 #原來幻境中我們是宇宙鴛鴦好浪漫 (三)英文強迫症 轉入普通病房後,嬌貴的大爺容易因為環境吵雜而躁動,我只好心一橫把年度醫美保養預算全部貢獻出來讓他住單人房。 但雖然躁動少了,卻感覺他「性情變了」! 例如,很易怒!然後話講不出來就更怒!只好全家下跪安撫大爺,深怕他血壓飆高二度中風。 這幾日易怒的期間,他開口只講「英文」(到底Why 英文又不是他的母語,他只是長得像黑人)。 想要病床高一點:「higher!」 沒人意會過來,他惱羞成怒:「why you are soooooo stupid ?」 結果說甚麼不只看護先生聽不懂,連兒子來探望爸爸,兒子也聽不懂……兒子只好抓著爸爸的衣角小聲說:「爸爸,你可以不要一直說英文嗎?我聽不懂啦!」。 #還好他幾日後恢復了中文能力 #易怒性格不翼而飛 #現在問他大爺自己完全不記得 (四)誠實機 然後易怒的時候,我才知道了一個老公過去總不說的事實。 當時他插著鼻胃管不能進食,看到兒子吃零食,像個孩子一樣討著要吃。 我怕他生氣,只好好言安撫:「爸爸,再忍一下啦,醫生怕你現在進食會嗆到,會肺炎。你再忍幾天,等可以進食時,我天天做菜帶來給你吃喔!」 「很難吃啊!我不要啊!很難吃欸!」 登愣!結婚八年你終於說了實話,原來你一直覺得我做飯難吃! #以後自己天天吃便利商店包子吧你 #親愛的大家我做飯很好吃優 (五)工作狂 隨著時間,筋肉爸爸的說話、思考、脾氣、神智、心智,都回到了水平,就像過去的爸爸一樣。 然後他就開始想要遙控我在工作室代班的工作。 他開始讀取工作室[email protected]帳號訊息內容,導致原本我和小幫手,已經為了看不懂他過去手寫的上課紀錄而頭大,這下子雪上加霜! 因為他會自己回學員訊息,導致我們漏看訊息;然後大爺現在金魚腦會忘記他看過,或是忘記告訴我他回覆了什麼……然後我們就遺漏了學生訊息。天啊!要不是現在不能刺激他,我真的很想翻桌啊… #但是想到差點失去他這一點都不算什麼 #你這壞大爺做甚麼我都愛你喔 (六)小收穫 所以幾周後,我終於稍為理出了工作室的頭緒,也開始招生我自己教授的運動團體課囉! 所有班級都是我教課,也會陸續開新班。歡迎大家來找我一起運動舒壓保健康! 課程資訊與報名 https://www.jzshop.com.tw/pages/jzfitness (可以私訊我給連結) #重訓基礎肌力基礎都有課 #都是女生安心運動 #筋肉爸爸安心復健喔老婆有在乖乖顧工作

The fitness guru has lost several of his family members due to stroke and one of his relatives was only in his 20s.

According to Melody in her Facebook post, she admitted that it never came across her mind that such tragedy would befall on their family as they lead an active and healthy lifestyle

“We didn’t think about all that because we thought we were active, young and fit, and our medical check-ups didn’t show any problems,” Melody wrote.

“We would often work late and sacrifice sleep… We would sleep at 3 am, wake up at 6 am and take short naps during the day. In total, we slept less than six hours a day,” she added.

Following Woo’s stroke, Melody wrote that they are now making major changes to their lifestyle including going to bed at 9 or 10 pm and get a good night’s sleep instead of taking short naps during the day

這幾天,陸續有新聞關心筋肉爸爸和我的近況,也想知道當初怎麼發現爸爸中風的。本來不想受訪,想說我們小人物小家務事,有點小題大做~但自從有媒體轉發了我的粉專貼文後,電子媒體延伸新聞與轉發越來越多,實在擔心會出現臆測拼湊的內容,還有看到不少新…

The bodybuilder is now making a progress according to Melody and thanks to his fitness regime, Woo may make a swift recovery and regain his health soon.

Incorporating regular exercises and eating a balanced diet is important to living a healthy life but studies have shown that getting enough sleep also plays a crucial role to avoid non-communicable diseases like stroke.

In fact, sleeping less than six hours a day can increase one’s risk of getting a stroke, according to a study presented at the SLEEP 2012 conference

Many studies have also found a strong link between lack of sleep and increasing levels of stress hormones in the body that can lead to high blood pressure and risks of heart attacks. Therefore, you might want to prioritise getting enough sleep first before anything else.
