If you’re feeling in the mood for an uplifting, fitness-related film to check out during your lockdown or to share with staff — check out the award-winning documentary “Augie,” now available to stream on iTunes and Amazon, or on YouTube.
The film follows Augie Nieto, the founder of Life Fitness, who channeled his entrepreneurial spirit toward finding a cure for ALS alongside his wife, Lynne.
The Nietos share a remarkable story, an unlikely and enduring love story, one that also is changing the way ALS treatments and research are funded and advanced, with exercise and fitness a key piece of the puzzle. Despite ALS, the couple is literally changing the course of this horrific disease, proving that ALS is not an incurable disease; rather an underfunded one.
