I just read the wonderful story of Doug Werner and his 9 year old daughter, Abbie. She had flunked her school fitness test and she was initially depressed. Abbie knew she had to do something. She was a bit overweight and didn’t want to suffer with obesity issues as the years went by. But, both Doug and his daughter saw an opportunity – one that went beyond exercise.
Doug worked in the fitness industry and he ran marathons before being injured. Both father and daughter were out of shape, and they decided to do something about it. And, what they … Read the rest
