"Over the past couple of weeks I have started again and I have got a lot of feedback," said Sami Lou, 35.

"I always think people look at me as a 'happy go lucky' person and what people don't realise is that everyone struggles like they do.

"The amount of people who say 'thanks for sharing that video', I want to reach a wider scale of audience towards the mental health side of how exercise helps you with that."
