James, a member of Rex Wellness Center of Garner, has made life changing achievements through regular exercise.
Not long ago, his physician told him that he was close to having a heart attack. Since then, James began treadmill walking and with the help of the wellness center staff, he is now running!
James participates in both 5k and 10k races and recently placed 4th in his age division in a 10k competition.
The Trekking class is encouraging him to do a triathlon.
As a result of his commitment to exercise, James won a weight loss competition at work and no longer needs diabetic medication.
Way to go James!
