Best Wellness Advice 

For the Weinleins, they find that there is no special tip or trick that will get you in good shape. Instead, their best fitness advice is to remain consistent with your training. “I do not train extremely hard all of the time, but I have been consistent for over 25 years,” John says. 

Fitness Goals 

John and Molly plan to continue their running training, hoping their consistency leads to gradual improvement. John also hopes to return to wrestling shape in 2024 to train harder with their son.
