8 years after being diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) Augie Nieto is getting stronger. Doctors gave him 3 to 5 years, but in March of 2013, Augie rode the Octane Fitness xRide seated Elliptical powered by a Life Fitness motor, and inspired the entire convention. He had previously been using a Hammer Strength leg press machine that was custom made for his use. It's nothing short of miraculous, that Augie is getting stronger, and still fighting to cure ALS through Augie's Quest. Thank you for the inspiration Augie and Lynne.
