In all honesty, I had to be dragged ‘kicking and screaming’ to Giulia. In the first 71 years of my life, I have managed to avoid a personal trainer. My wife talked me into it. I went to Giulia to prepare for my first-century bike ride (one of those bucket list things) and got so much more. I totally changed my diet and my thinking about nutrition, lost 35 lbs, got physically stronger than I have been in years…and did the century with ease. Seldom in life do we experience such unexpected personal transformations.
