Details for 20 MINUTES TO FITNESS - Ad from 2020-01-12

By John Gudeman, Age 75
I was a weightlifter and pole vaulter in college and have enjoyed meeting challenges ever since.
In 2006, I decided to do a million push-ups. At a rate of 300 a day, six days a week, I did it, and am
working on my second million now. In 2016, 50 years after my final collegiate pole vault, I entered the
pole vault competition in the Senior Olympics.
My daughter Jennifer suggested I might need more than my push-up regimen to get in prime
Senior Olympic-level condition. She recommended 20 Minutes Fitness, where she trained.
There I could build strength safely on high-end MedX equipment and get a complete core
workout with just one 20-minute session a week. And it was all done under the watchful eye
of a physical therapist or other experienced fitness professional.
Today, I am happy to report that Jennifer was right. 20 Minutes to Fitness was exactly the
“natural physical therapy” I needed to fix an old shoulder injury and take my fitness to
the next level.
In my time here, I’ve increased my leg press weight alone by 100 pounds! I’ve brought home
a total of 25 medals from the St. Louis Senior Olympics, including a Gold in the pole vault.
I’m thrilled with how my 20 Minutes family has helped me increase my strength and athletic
ability. But 20 Minutes means more to me than that. I truly look forward to my Thursday
morning appointment each week. The atmosphere is always so friendly, positive and fun. I
am forever thankful to my terrific daughter, who gave me 20 Minutes, which is the best gift
anyone could receive.
By the way: You don’t have to be an Olympian to work out here. Whatever your age and
fitness level, 20 Minutes can help you build the strength you need to lead a more active life.

Your first session is free! So try it! I bet it will
change your life – just like it changed mine!
