Member Spotlight – Doug

[fusion_text]Meet Doug. All around nice guy, genuine to the core and CANCER SURVIVOR!

Doug was given a 28% chance of survival when he was diagnosed with cancer, but he is a fighter and beat the odds! He spent close to 4 months in a hospital bed at Trillium and went from weighing over 200lbs down to 140lbs. Together with the rapid weight loss he experienced, he had massive muscle loss as well. But for Doug, he didn’t know any better and the only option was to fight and survive. He is one of only 3 people to survive the type of cancer he had.

Doug has been training with One Health Clubs Personal Trainer, Brian Cruz for the last two and a half years. He is now at a healthy weight and is working on improving his strength and muscle endurance.[/fusion_text]

[fusion_text]In March 2017 Doug stood on the podium and received a BRONZE MEDAL at Alpine Ski Club during their club championships. He had this message to share with his Trainer Brian after his WIN:

“I have raced for the past 17 years, which I started at 40, and have never podiumed, ever. But this year I achieved something I am very proud of. I believe we can share this medal together because it is a direct result from all the hard work you have put me through over the last 2 and a half years since my bout with cancer. I have achieved something I am very proud of and wish to share with you. Thank you” – Doug[/fusion_text]
