Britney Spears' former husband Kevin Federline has opened up about his recent health scare during the filming of a fitness TV show, insisting it has spurred him on to improve his lifestyle.
The former dancer, who is father to Spears' two sons, is currently in Australia trying to lose weight on reality programme Excess Baggage.
Federline was hospitalised last week (23Jan12) after suffering chest pains during a training session with an Australian Football League (AFL) team in Sydney and doctors initially feared he had suffered a heart attack.
He is now back filming the fitness show and insists the scare has encouraged him to work harder to improve his health.
Federline tells the Herald Sun, "One of the reasons why I'm doing this is because I don't want to worry about episodes like what happened (last week). The whole thing just makes me real cautious about what I'm doing and what I'm putting my body through.
"I feel great (now) but it was pretty scary. I'm glad I'm okay. I'm ready to get back to work. If anything, it makes me wanna push myself to get healthier in the future so I don't have to worry about that again."
