How Fitness Helped Save This Bodybuilding Gym Owner’s Life in a Medical Crisis. Ep. 77

Aug 30, 2022 | Podcast | 0 comments

Have you ever had a near-death experience? I haven’t. But Ricky Banks has.

Ricky is a 57-year-old gym owner and bodybuilder near Atlanta. He’s in spectacular physical condition and enjoys a healthy lifestyle.

But earlier this year, Ricky was rushed to a hospital, where he spent a few days in a coma while doctors tried to stop severe stomach bleeding. They gave him 50-50 odds of surviving – -and when it was all over, they told Ricky that his fitness level helped save his life.

Now, you don’t have to be a spectacularly buitl fitness professioanl for this to apply to you, too — or to your vast audience of prospects and customers. It’s a simple fact that staying in shape — with basics like an appropriate weight and healthy blood pressure — help us survive medical emergencies.

And after 50, we’re more likely to face those — from ER visits to planned joint replacements.

So, listen to Ricky tell his story today, and let it remind you of the LITERALLY life-saving work that you do every day. Take that message out to your community. You never know how far it will reach. Here’s my conversation with Ricky.
