It's what he calls the "emergency plan." At any time from here moving forward, adult females who weigh more than 200 pounds and adult males who weigh more than 280 pounds are invited to join LA East free for 90 days. "There will be guidelines and an interview process to get accepted for free," the website says. "We want to help those that want help." And if participants are trying and showing progress after 90 days, Chinn said he will extend the offer for another 30 days. It comes down to people who are afraid to take that first step into a fitness center." He said he doesn't want people to be intimidated by those who are already in shape.
Sure, there are some individuals at LA East who are sculpted, but Chinn said the majority of members are just folks who are trying to get healthy. As part of the free package, Chinn will offer participants training, coaching and nutrition plans. "I'll be a 24-hour coach and nutritionist," he said. "Anything they need while they're trying to change their life." Part of the motivation for Chinn to get residents healthy is West Virginia's continued No. He knows poor health is impacting the state's economy. "Our culture has to change in the state of West Virginia," he said. "Businesses don't come to West Virginia because of our health. We're never going to grow this state until we change this culture." Another motivator for Chinn is remembering how dramatically his body changed over a short period of time. While skinny in high school, Chinn said he put on a substantial amount of weight after graduating and getting married.
"I saw myself on camera playing basketball, and it changed my life in 1991. I joined a gym, then moved here in 1995, then joined this gym." Health and wellness has been a major part of his life ever since. Even on bike week, I work out." He's also lost loved ones due to heart disease and diabetes. "I lost my grandfather, grandmother, father, uncle, and two aunts — all before the age of 61, and two of them were in their 50s," Chinn said. "That's why I live the way I do, or I would be that statistic." He said his "emergency plan" at LA East eliminates the two initial concerns about getting healthy — the cost and the time. We're a 24-hour fitness center." How to make your own bath bombs.
