Certified instructor description:
Alive! With Damue is a dynamic new health and fitness DVD by Damue Bagwell designed to help maintain and lower blood pressure, cholesterol levels and diabetes. The fact is that these three problems affect millions of Americans today and although complication from these ailments can be prevented, most people do not know the simple steps to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, many others don't take these steps until their health is already seriously compromised.
Damue discovered that he suffered from high blood pressure at the age of 18. He had an unhealthy diet of fried foods and foods containing high volumes of salt. Unaware that his diet and high blood pressure were a serious problem, his kidney function went down to 5%. With Damue's kidneys functioning so poorly he was forced to undergo dialysis and later received a kidney transplant.
As Damue explains, "Getting a second chance with life I felt rejuvenated, but I didn't see the same joy in others. I noticed that they were always complaining and had serious depression issues. My social workers would ask me to come to meetings to be an example for others to see that they could live a normal life with a transplant. I always wanted to do something for people with this ailment because I felt their pain. I woke up one morning with the idea to put out an exercise video for people with the conditions I had. They tell people with health problems to exercise, but they don't tell them how. So I researched and came up with an aerobic exercise to help with hypertension, high cholesterol, cardiac conditions and diabetes." Damue is committed to helping people overcome their personal health problems.
