Senior Member of the Month

Meet John Brentlinger, our Senior Member of the Month.

How long have you been a member at Fitness Experience?
I joined Fitness Experience about 12 years ago. I had to stop swimming 10 years ago when my shoulder said to do something else. I decided to make up the swimming time by spending more time at the gym.

What has been your most memorable achievement since joining Fitness Experience?
I have been able to keep up a fairly active lifestyle. I believe the program I follow at FE has made this possible. I have had medical procedures that have slowed me down but the workouts before and after have allowed me to stay active. I have met lots of nice people at FE. They are always encouraging and offer good advice.

What is one fitness goal you would like to accomplish this year?
My goal this year, like the past years, is to slow the advance of old age.

What are some of your hobbies?
I like to go fishing with friends. We often drift down the Willamette. I also chase a little white ball around a grassy field and beat on it with a club. Now and then I go to a shooting range and try to punch holes in the center of a target. Targets move I think. In the afternoon, I usually try to spend an hour reading.
