A call for help. Several years ago, personal trainer and registered dietitian Mike Gorski faced a unique challenge. He was contacted by a woman named Colleen who hoped that he might help her brother, Zach, improve his health.
“Zach had reached 203 pounds (at 5'4") at the age of 43 and was borderline diabetic with thyroid issues,” recalls Gorski. “Zach also has Down syndrome.”
That last fact gave the trainer pause.
