Larry Bryant: I changed my life at the Waynesboro Family YMCA


Larry Bryant didn’t just win the Spooktacular October ActivTrax Fitness Challenge at the Waynesboro Family YMCA. He blew away the field, piling up 6,200 points, working out an average of two times a day.

We caught up with Bryant at a recent two-a-day to ask him how he does it.

“When I turned 58, I was overweight, out of shape. I decided before I got too old that I needed to get back in shape before I got too old and couldn’t get in shape. That was my motivation to getting in shape,” said Bryant, who joined the YMCA two years ago.

Bryant does a cardio and ab workout in the morning before work, and then after work does an ActivTrax weight workout.

The ActivTrax metric rates Bryant’s fitness level as “superior.” He’s come a long way in just two years at the Y.

“I feel great now,” Bryant said. “Before I had a hard time tying my shoes. I’d go up a flight of steps and have shortness of breath. Now I’ve got all that back, and I’m maintaining good health, taking vitamins, trying to eat right.”

Bryant gives the Y his ringing endorsement.

“You should join the Y. It’s a great fitness challenge,” Bryant said.
