After recently joining the Wellness Challenge at the Eastside YMCA, his cholesterol is down and he has lost 35 pounds thanks to a strict workout schedule and a healthier diet. He wants to motivate others to get fit live a healthy life. John is five months into a six month wellness program. He plans to continue his new heart healthy journey for years to come.

He says he's getting fit for his family. He wants many more years with his wife and looks forward to walking his daughter down the aisle.
