Charter Fitness Gets Tinley Park Dad Ready for Zombie Apocalypse

CHICAGO, March 8, 2013 // PRNewswire // -- "#@$%! those zombies! That's what I'd say if there was a zombie apocalypse," declared Ted who enjoys pretending to be zombie fighters with his kids. One look at Ted's warrior-like physique and it's easy to believe that he could hold a mob of zombies at bay.

Just two years ago, Ted would not have dreamed of talking like this. Overweight and out-of-shape, Ted had problems keeping up with his small kids, let alone taking on zombies. The epiphany came one day when he found himself out-of-breath and outrun by his 7-year-old.

Determined to get into shape, Ted signed up for personal training at his local Charter Fitness. His personal trainer, Graham, got him started with lunges and jump-rope, then added cardio. Ted also began a healthy diet with an endless supply of fruits and vegetables and support from his already fit, zombie-indifferent wife.

Dana, another personal trainer at Charter Fitness, guided Ted as he increased the intensity of his weight lifting.

As Ted's muscles built, so did his confidence. In just over a year, Ted lost over 60 pounds while packing on a considerable amount of muscle. "I've never felt better in my life…Thanks Charter Fitness!" said Ted.

"We're proud to be a part of Ted's inspirational story! His success is a strong testimonial to our personal training program," said Dan Collins , Director of Sales at Charter Fitness.

Ted now outruns his children and feels confident that he can protect his neighborhood against zombies.
