In 2014 Team #HeartLove member Skip Davidson was diagnosed with AFib a quivering and irregular heartbeat that can lead to number of heart-related complications.
Skip Explains, " I was sent for a sleep study that’s where I learned I had sleep apnea so my weight led to sleep apnea and that lead to AFib." He's sleep doctor put him on a CPAP machine at night. Skip found the CPAP to be a huge annoyance. That annoyance motivated Skip to get into shape!
Skip says he asked his doctor, "What do I have to do to get off this thing?" Doctor he would have to 15-20 percent of his body weight. Skip accepted that challenge and with the hlp of his doctor began a strict diet and exercise program going from 287lbs to 219lbs.
Skip is part of Team #HeartLove which consist of 6 people trained by coaches Julie Sapper and Lisa Reichman. Each team member is training to run their very first 5K (3.1 mile) race at Fletcher’s Cove parkrun.
