    March Health Nut of the Month:

    Marty Neibauer!
    Congratulations to Marty from Central for being nominated and selected as our Health Nut of the month for March!

    Here is what his nominator said:

    "Marty is the biggest health nut I know. Marty is an avid bike rider, he rides between 150 to 200 hundred miles six time a week. He also continues to work out at Vasa fitness center 3 to 4 times a week. When Marty is not working out or riding his bike he spends his time hiking in the Rocky Mountains with family. Marty just had shoulder replacement surgery 15 weeks ago and started riding his bike and working out at twelve and half weeks. I also have talked with him about nutrition and Marty is a healthy eater, only putting nutritious foods in his body. He is by far the biggest Health Nut in the District!!!"
