Dick has been committed to exercise ever since he had triple by-pass surgery in 1993. In NJ he uses an elliptical trainer in the basement of our apartment building. Now that we are in Florida, he has joined a gym, Tuffy's, about three and a half miles from our condo. Dick rides his bike to the gym nearly every morning unless it's raining or too windy. Since this is "sunny Florida" Dick rides nearly every day. Once he arrives at the gym, he puts in 45 to 50 minutes on the elliptical trainer.
Dick is proof positive that people can recover from open heart surgery and live healthy, active lives. He watches his diet and exercises seven days a week. He's a role model for anyone with heart disease.
