In a letter to the Recreation Center on April 9, 2001, William Marinucci, a longstanding Rec Center member wrote . . .

I wish to express my sincere gratitude to Mr. Chris Clolinger for all his assistance and guidance as my trainer. He was instrumental in helping me lose 89 lbs -- the right way! I have been very successful in reaching my goals, and Chris was a significant contributor to my success. He is an excellent trainer and a great motivator!

Best regards,

William L. Marinucci
