September, 2017

September has been a great month!!  Here's why:


​​1.  Friday, Sept 15th, I was on the "Good Day - PA" show on WHTM-ABC TV in Harrisburg, PA!!  My son graciously helped me lug the weights in and out of the studio and was a HUGE help the entire day!  The folks at "Good Day - PA" were fantastic and very professional.  I did a live demo - squatting 300 x 5 - and discussed weight training and, of course, the book.


​2.  Thursday, Sept 28th, ABC's Channel Six (yes, THE Channel six!!) came out to feature me for their "Art of Aging" show.  Dave Goetz, the producer, and his crew were great!!  I can't say enough nice things about them!!  The show was filmed at the Philadelphia Sports Club in Chalfont.  A BIG "Thank You" to them as well!! Once again, my son was there to lend a hand and his moral support!!  Thank you, Rob!!  The show will air in a few weeks.


​3.  I was interviewed by Times Publishing, a local newspaper, concerning weight training for baby boomers and the training issues confronting them.  It was a great talk and a huge "Thank you" to James Snider, who conducted the interview.  It will be published in the Doylestown Observer soon!


​4.  I've been contacted by a few more local TV stations who will be having me on their respective shows coming up in October and November!!  I'll keep you posted.  




August, 2017

On August 15th, ​​I had a great interview with the folks at WBNJ-AM!!  They were very accommodating and asked some really good questions.  I also had the chance to visit with my very first training partner, Pete Amerman, who runs a mission in Morristown, NJ.  He asked me to address the group that he had been helping to re-shape their lives.  They are a great bunch of guys, and I wish them all the best!


July, 2017

Events are happening fast, and I will be very active in July as well.  At least two radio stations have expressed and interest in having me on.  I am also working on other media appearances - yes, television included!  It's going to be a lot of fun and I'll let you know what's happening.  Thank you again for another great month of book sales!!

​The morning crew was great and my son was a trooper - getting up early and carrying the weights into the studio in the pouring rain!  He even provided the old-man with valuable wardrobe advice!


​The Philadelphia Inquirer ran an article that featured yours truly along with some "old-time" lifters, Bob Giordano and Leo Totten, talking about how lifting weights keep you young!  Thank you to Erin Averdlund of the Inquirer for putting this together!  The article was great and very informative.  Here it is:

​The Baby-Boomer blog called "Growing Bolder" featured a write-up of my Injury-to-Recovery story.  A HUGE "Thank you" to Katy Widrick for including it in their blog:

​I​ was recently interviewed by Doug Schrift, who runs the "Elder Gym" blog.  We chatted for over an hour about how weight training is so critical for seniors who want to remain healthy and active.  Thank you, Doug, for sharing this with your audience!
