At 11 a.m. Eminence resident Mark Zimmerman climbed onto a treadmill at the Eminence Community Center. A bank of windows in the fitness room set high on the wall provided privacy as well as sunlight.
Fifteen minutes into his routine he ramped up the incline and speed settings, providing more bang for his cardiovascular buck.
He was sweating, but talked easily about his recent physical transformation.
Zimmerman quit smoking a year ago, and decided to kick his health up another notch.
