I work for 24 Hour Fitness. We just launched a new advertising campaign - 12 million lives - telling the personal success stories of some of our members. When I first saw the commercials I realized how inspirational they could be for people. I hope they inspire you, or help you inspire a friend or family member.

Hi Glen,
My name is Mary.  I'm the moderator for the Wellsphere weight loss community.  Thanks for joining us.  I know the fight to lose weight and keep it off is a tough one.
If you're new to Wellsphere take a few minutes to explore the site.  There are tons of great articles on everything from sports to healthy eating to relaxation.  If you're looking for something specific the search feature is great.  For instance you can use it to find healthy barbeque tips, information on accupuncture and spinning classes along with hundreds of other things.
Feel free to post questions, comments and information.  This is truly an interactive community of people who want to live healthier lives.  We all work together to support one another.
I just wanted you to know that we're here to help you attain your goals.  If there is anything I can help with let me know.  And welcome to Wellsphere.

glen can tie his own shoes again.

Glen Bedingfield joined 24 Hour Fitness as a Christmas present to his daughters. At the time, he was in his 60s , out of shape and starting to develop health problems. In his words, “To tell the truth, I couldn’t hardly bend down to tie my own shoes anymore.” Glen started working out regularly, and surprised himself by finding a community in 24 Hour Fitness. He says the trainers teased him, “Glen, you stay here more than we do.” His results? He lost 90 pounds and “my blood pressure is that of a 16 year old...My doctor said I was the most significantly improved patient he’d ever seen.”
