According to police, Varun Kumar, a native of Vizag and residing in Matrusrinagar in Miyapur and was as a software professional in Dell for the past one year.
"The gym instructors asked him to sit for a while, but he suddenly collapsed in a heap and became unconscious. Varun was rushed to the company clinic on the campus. The doctor checked Varun's blood pressure, and found that his pulse was hovering at 40," Madhapur sub-inspector P Vijay Kumar said.
Later, Varun was rushed to Max care hospital, where he was declared brought dead. It was suspected that Varun died due to exhaustion caused by excessive workout in the gym.
Varun, a native of Visakhapatnam, joined Dell a year ago and had been going to the gym regularly.
"When we spoke to Varun's father, who rushed to the city after being informed about his son's death told us that Varun had some heart problem in the past," Madhapur police inspector Kalinga Rao told media.
Police found out that Varun did not eat properly on Tuesday night and despite this he worked hard at the gym on Wednesday.
