This week's Lighthouse Fitness Project is really about shining a light on fitness and a full life for the gifted and not-so-gifted. Bringing everyone into the light of a healthy life means making sure everyone, no matter their background or size, feels truly welcome into a fitness community, and that not only are they welcome at the starting line, the starting line is less without them.
For 25 years of his life, Jamie Gastineau was losing time — precious, irreplaceable time. A pack-a-day smoker, Jamie was losing 11 minutes of his life for every cigarette he smoked. However, at the age of 40, everything changed for Jamie — thanks to his son.
