Woman ditches husband of eight years for her personal trainer
A woman who ditched her skinny husband for a hunky personal trainer says she’s finally found happiness – after becoming a BODY BUILDER.
Pamela Hunt, 50, from Suffolk, married Vince Coombs in 2009 but after two years of marriage, she ditched him for her new personal trainer, Ray Houghton, 58.
The couple moved to The Orihuela Costa, Spain in February 2010 but after just 18 months in the country, Pamela started to develop feeling for fitness fanatic, Ray.
She soon ended her marriage to skinny Vince and has since taken up body building at Body Beach Gym, Cabo Roig, with gym owner and new beau, Ray.
They now train together every day and are happier than ever.
Pamela, who now works at the gym, said: “When I first joined the gym and saw Ray I thought: ‘Wow!’
“Vince is normal build and was taller than Ray but I’ve always found muscles very attractive.
“It was definitely something that drew me towards Ray, he was in amazing shape.”
“My feelings for Ray took me by complete surprise, I was happily married and wasn’t looking for a new lover.
“But the more personal training sessions I had, the more I realised I was starting to fancy Ray.
“He was an attractive man and everything he talked about I found interesting.
“During every gym session my feelings for Ray grew stronger.”
“I knew I needed to end my marriage, I had to be honest with Vince.
“So I told him that I couldn’t spend the rest of my life with him and that it was over.”
Pamela had no idea if Ray fancied her until she finished with Vince.
She added: “It was risky but I couldn’t keep my feelings to myself for any longer.
“I was so nervous texting Ray but I just wrote, ‘I’ve got feeling for you, I don’t know if you feel the same.’
“Thankfully he replied, ‘I feel exactly the same but I wasn’t going to interfere with your marriage.'”
Pamela felt a huge sense of relief and now they were both free to start dating.
She added: “Ray is my absolute soul mate, there is no one in the world who I think is a better match for me.
“Dating him made me feel like a teenager again, for the first time in years I felt a huge surge of sexual chemistry.
“Vince was happy for us and that made everything a lot easier.
“He understood that he’d played his part in my life and it was time to move on.
“Initially we had moved to the Spain to find a new property investment but we’ve both stayed in the country since our split.”
Ray has since helped Pamela get her dream body and now she’s training to take part in bodybuilding competitions in England or Spain next year.
Pamela added: “I have never felt so good in my entire life.
“I had always been a size 6-8 but had started to feel saggy as I was heading to my 50’s.
“But now I’m full of energy, me and Ray don’t drink, or go out for meals.
“We are 100 per cent dedicated to the gym and improving our physiques.
“I have the body of a woman in my 20s and me and Ray want to live long and happy lives together.
“I hope our story inspires others to take risks, ditching my husband for my personal trainer has completely changed my life.”
Vince said: “When Pamela told me she had feelings for Ray I felt disappointed in myself, and not knowing where I had gone wrong.
“It was a total shock, I had no idea, but to be fair, not as shocked as Pamela when it came flying out of her mouth.
“We are still good friends and always will be, but we will never get back together as I never look back just forwards.
“Things always happen for a reason, Pamela and Ray can now grow as people together and enjoy whatever comes their way and I have a wonderful life and this new chapter is just as good as the others have been.
“I can’t wait to see what happens next.”
