More Background on Doug


His first experience with Precor was in 1988 when his parents bought him a Precor rowing machine. He's worked for Precor for five years and doesn't ever want to leave. Previous work experience includes marketing roles at Campbell Soup. Doug thinks that sometimes, the benefits of exercise beyond weight loss, are overlooked. He says:

”Thin is different from fit. There are skinny smokers with bad diets that end up having heart surgery. I’ve seen them - I had heart surgery in 2008 and my time in the recovery ward strengthened my passion to 'evangelize' for fitness."  He believes networked fitness is the trend to watch.
