He was officially deceased

Coded as dead but alive to tell his story
Jim Brennan at Gold’s Gym Orlando (April 3, 2014 – last night)


Jim almost died. Well, he actually was dead for three minutes, but was miraculously revived.

Told him long ago that he is inspiring – we’ve been Gold’s Gym Orlando members for years.

What felt like only a month has been 18. He was in a coma for eight weeks and in a hospital for eight months.


A story that can not be told in this post at this time.

A brutal ordeal by any measure.

And insanely lucky to be alive.

And the doctors told him the only reason he didn’t die sooner was because he biked and swam, even while being 100+ pounds overweight.
