2/18/19 - DEUCE Diaries: GPP+

The cliche that “it’s never too late” to start your fitness journey is often talked about and rarely acted upon. Here is an example that puts proof in the pudding. GPP+ is a specialty course in that it is our general physical preparedness program for our older population (65+). Its creator, Coach Juan Guadarrama, transcends his stereotype to deliver a life changing experience for these savvy veterans of life.

The DEUCE Diaries series by our own Melanie Lim follows Joe Brook’s venture into the program to help his recovery from hip surgery. After seeing his classmates, he assumed the programming wasn’t for him. He was wrong.
