HELP TOM GET INDUCTED INTO THE NATIONAL FITNESS HALL OF FAME

Total Gym® CEO Tom Campanaro, has been nominated as a candidate for National Fitness Hall of Fame induction.

 The National Fitness Hall of Fame & Museum (NFHOF&M), founded in 2004, recognizes top industry professionals who have dedicated at least 25 years of their careers to the service of others; helping millions get fit, stay in shape and live healthy, happy and productive lives.

Along with five other candidates, Hall of Fame inductees will be chosen based on a public vote. Voting closes on November 30, 2012 and can be made by visiting www.NationalFitnessHallofFame.com.

INDUCTION CRITERIA

An Individual can be nominated for National Fitness Hall of Fame Induction Consideration if they meet the minimum criteria listed below:

* 25 or more years of, full-time, service as a professional in the Heath & Fitness Industry.

* The personal practice of “The Fitness Lifestyle”

* Genuine concern for the welfare of others.

* A nationally recognized, “Body of Work.”

* Reached the age of 50. (New age requirement started in 2012)

Campanaro is the creative genius and driving force behind Total Gym, the world’s leading manufacturer of functional and bodyweight training equipment.

Founded in 1974, he developed the Total Gym incline bodyweight trainer, a high-quality fitness machine that uses a person’s own bodyweight as resistance and encourages the use of multiple muscle groups together in each exercise—now referred to as “functional training.”

Originally developed as a fitness product, Campanaro’s company noticed a significant portion of their sales were to physical therapists, which helped expand their sales market into the physical therapy rehabilitation and wellness industries as well.

Recognizing a need to bring fitness to home consumers, Campanaro partnered with American Telecast to further extended Total Gym’s reach in 1996 with what is today, the longest running broadcast infomercial in history. The infomercial helped propel Total Gym to cult status with over 4 million users and over 1.5 billion dollars’ worth of Total Gyms sold through the infomercial and in retail stores in over 85 countries.

Now with commercial partners in 23 countries, Total Gym continues to lead the industry with innovative functional and bodyweight training products, in addition to its award-winning GRAVITYSystem® commercial fitness program that is currently offered worldwide.

In an industry with over  500,00 employees and approximately 30,000 businesses (according to IBIS Worlds’s Gym, Health & Fitness Clubs market research.), Campanaro has made Total Gym a household name and with it, has helped inspire over 24 million workouts per year worldwide.

“BACK IN THE SADDLE” WITH TOTAL GYM FOUNDER TOM CAMPANARO


The interesting thing about PAIN is that you learn to live with it.

For the past five years or so, I have been experiencing extreme pain in my left ankle. This goes back to my motor cycle accident when I was 16 and broke the left leg. I am sure the setting style back then in 1965 was not a technical as today.  The miss alignment I am sure has caused the issue over the years.

But for years the only potential solution was FUSION, which was just not an option for someone like me that likes to remain active. I knew from our involvement in the physical rehabilitation market that the ankle replacement was coming, so I just delayed and put up with the pain — which believe me — is no way to live.

Now, for the first time in years, I am finally PAIN FREE. Although I do not have full ankle mobility yet, my range of motion and strength are improving everyday and once the surgical wound heals and I can officially begin my ankle rehab – it’ll be back to action.

 

 

 

Yes off crutch’s and walking,  this wound healing take’s time , one more week and then real rehab!!
