Elkview gym honors veteran
ELKVIEW, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) —
A veteran was honored Thursday in Elkview as part of Anytime Fitness’ Member Appreciation Day.
The fitness center surprised David Fields.
Fields, 76, has Parkinson’s disease, and workers at the Elkview Anytime Fitness said he is in the gym almost every day and is an inspiration and pleasure to have as a member.
To show their appreciation, workers decided to dedicate a treadmill in Fields’ honor with a plaque.
“I never dreamed that I would have anyone celebrate anything that I did, but it was all for me,” Fields said.
Fields was once a distance runner and mentored runners at Herbert Hoover High School.
