I had to give you a quote, because this book was so incredible! With ‘Fit
Over 40” you have given everyone the holy grail of fitness an opportunity to
be forever young. As you know, I am a former world champion and record
holder in the Paralympics, and a past member of the Presidents Council on
Physical Fitness & Sports (President’s Bush & Clinton) — many thanks!

I am 48 years old, have suffered 4 heart attacks, at 40,
44, 46, and 48, resulting in 6 stints and triple bypass in Dec. 2004. At
the time of the last heart attack I weighed in at 265 lbs, and I am 6’1”
tall, carrying the majority of the weight from the waist up.
After the last heart attack, the surgeon that counseled with me said that
the probability of me living through surgery was slim, and that if I did
survive, I would probably be disabled for the rest of my life. My ejection
fraction (volume of blood squeezed from the heart) was 10 compared to a
normal heart ejection fraction of between 50-60.
I purchased your e-book in January 2005, and started trying to implement
your suggestions to improve the quality of my physical life. I am a
Christian so I was not and am not worried about my spiritual condition.
Reading your personal success story, along with the stories of others helped
inspire me to commit to an exercise regimen that is truly changing my life.
I am currently at 198 lbs, 46”-48” chest, 33”-34” waist, 17” neck. I am
still working out daily, but am primarily doing cardio. I am up to 2.5 miles
in 30 minutes on the treadmill.
I had my ejection fraction measured a couple of weeks ago and one
measurement indicated a 57!!!!
I give all my credit to God, and thank you for having the fortitude to
develop your books suggesting diet and fitness programs.
