Congratulations to Marty S. for starting off the year of 2017 with our first Member of the Month recognition. Marty has been with us for a few months now and has progressed very quickly and shows great effort in each and every one of his sessions. We knew that Marty was very passionate about bettering himself when he has talked to us about his success in road biking. We are excited to see how much the resistance training and fitness classes translate to his road bike in the spring and summer coming up. Marty has also had quite an interesting health history that he does not use to hold him back and it shows in the intensity that he brings with him to each session. Keep up the awesome work Marty!
In 2005 I was diagnosed with a benign tumor growing on my spinal cord in the area of the C3-C4 vertebrae. I had surgery (actually 2 surgeries over 2 days) January 2006 to remove the tumor. Due to its location on my spinal cord and how it was wrapped around the cord, they couldn't remove it all. I was out of work for a good 8 weeks or more recovering.
Approximately August 2010 it was determined the tumor had regrown to the point where another surgery was needed. Surgery was performed in September 2010. This time after surgery I had radiation treatment to hopefully stop the tumor from growing. So far so good and it hasn't regrown.
In November 2011 I had a pacemaker implanted after being diagnosed with a second degree AV block. Everything has been great since the implant.
Throughout your lifetime, how long have you been working out for and what do you enjoy mos
