I owe my life to the In-Shape Health Clubs and my training program there. In 1988, I joined the club, worked out 3 to 4 times a week, building muscle strength, endurance and cardio vascular fitness.

These workouts and the level of fitness I attained made my recovery from bypass surgery in 2008 at age 62 amazing even to my doctors and therapists. Two months after surgery, I was walking 2 1/2 to 3 miles per day and have increased daily mileage to 5 to 6 miles every day.

I also had knee surgeries in 2001-2003 due to a high school injury. With my arm strength, I was again able to lift my body and walk with the crutches and recovery was accelerated.

Now it’s 7 months after cardiac surgery, I am very anxious to return energized with endured training, and actively walking to increase cardio fitness.
