15 Feb: Tech, Common Sense and Good Shoes Lead to Stronger Heart, Smaller Waistline

For Justin Durrant, even the little things were becoming a struggle. Tying his shoes. Getting the mail. Taking out the trash.

He was 37 years old, weighed 340 pounds and both his parents had died young of heart disease. He decided it was time to do something.

“I wanted to be around for my kids,” he says. “Genetics were playing against me, so I figured I’d take control of what I can.”

As we mark American Heart Month in February, stories like Justin’s serve as a reminder of how important it is to keep that ticker healthy.
