Business RadioX Hosts Interview Joan Denziot of Super Sized Cycles

On Thursday August 11th, 2011, Atlanta Business RadioX Hosts Dr. Adam Shafran and Lee Kantor had a chance to chat with Joan Denziot whose Super Sized Cycles were recently featured on ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition.

When Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition’s host and trainer Chris Powell was looking for a bike for one of his trainees, James, he turned to a good friend of the Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy Show, Joan Denizot. Joan created Super Sized Cycles when, after gaining some weight herself, she was informed that she wasn’t the right size for a bicycle.

Instead of copping an attitude, she created a positive movement of empowerment and self respect, designed innovative, comfortable bicycles able to hold 550 pounds, and set out to remind us all that “Zize”, like life, is all about attitude! She says “A surprising, overlooked solution to fitness; bicycles offer a fun, easy way to get in shape, for all sizes of bodies,” and she was happy to help Extreme contestant James Garrison bike his way to losing over 300 pounds in one year.

Business RadioX Hosts Dr. Adam Shafran and Lee Kantor Interview Norbie Lara of the Wounded Warrior Project

On Thursday July 28th, 2011, Atlanta Business RadioX Hosts Dr. Adam Shafran and Lee Kantor were joined in the studio by Norberto “Norbie” Lara and Ray Upshaw, both Tough Mudder “Hall of Famers”.

Norbie Lara joined the Army in 1995. In 2004 he was injured in Iraq. He was in a coma for months and lost his arm. Since then, this Bronze Star recipient has been helping other wounded warriors, like himself, transition to a new life after injury through the Wounded Warrior Project.

During the interview, Norbie talked about how the closing of the Walter Reed Medical Center saddens him. He said the staff was really caring and were truly honored to be providing services to soldiers. It has taken Norbie awhile to get back in shape but that hasn’t stopped him from participating in the Tough Mudder events.
