Despite two decades of gym memberships and personal trainers, I never got even close to my present level of fitness…at the ripe age of 41! When I started training at The Lab, I had a doughy body. Little did I know that Lawson was equal parts Burgess Meredith from “Rocky,” Yoda, Oprah, and Michelangelo.— Jimmy Zankel
