Photojournalist's fitness journey continues in the Knoxville Journal

Workout Anytime for everyone
By Wes Hall for The Knoxville Journal

In mid-September, this 61-year-old photojournalist joined a Workout Anytime Powell Boot Camp to get more fit, increase stamina, improve my cardiovascular health. and hopefully lose some weight. After 12 weeks, I am proud to say I am still on track to reach my goals. So far, I have accomplished what I consider a lot more than I had hoped. I have lost nearly 20 pounds, bringing four inches off my waist. I am eating more healthily. My energy level has increased as my blood sugar has gone down. Those who don’t see me often comment on how much younger I look, even though I have since let my white beard grow out.

At Workout Anytime Powell, the Boot Camp makes it easier to participate, because working out becomes a part of the weekly routine. When left on our own, many would procrastinate. I didn’t believe before I started I really had time for it. It didn’t take long for me to realize that an hour a day, three days a week for 13 weeks could make so much of a difference. The difference is not only a healthier lifestyle now, but 50 hours of exercise could add a few years to my time here on earth. Perhaps, I will get to enjoy future grandchildren despite my diabetes and heart disease.

How the Military Prepares Veterans to Start a Business
by David Mielach

A missed opportunity helped lead John Quattrocchi to become the president of gym franchise Workout Anytime. After working in avionics and missile-guidance systems for the U.S. Air Force, Quattrocchi applied to a job with Delta Air Lines, but was rejected. That rejection, however, led him to start working in the fitness industry. After nearly four decades in the industry, Quattrocchi was named president of Workout Anytime.
