Four years ago, Dennis Oliver started going to the local YMCA at 4:00 a.m. with a group of guys who were working to open the new River View Coal. Back then, five minutes on a treadmill seemed like an eternity to the engineer. Today, he enjoys running in 5K races and has a new found appreciation for fruits and yogurt.
No longer on blood pressure and cholesterol medication, the married father of three has also lost 40 pounds. Dennis is quick to credit the nurses at the mine for their ongoing support. “Seeing my HealthCheck results a few years ago was disheartening,” admits Dennis. “Now it’s something I look forward to.”
