We have been getting a lot of inquiries about the health status of “Big Jim” Modlin, the man who helped make Ragsdale, ECU, Fitness Today and Gold’s Gym famous…..(At one time, “Big Jim” stood about 6’8 and weighed 300 pounds….)

“Big Jim” Modlin is home, out of the hospital now and from what we have been hearing, he is doing good and seems to be progressing well with his recovery….

Jim had a very severe/serious Staph Infection and nearly died three times while in the High Point Regional Hospital during the months of December and January…..

Looks like Jim is on the road to recovery and we will try and keep you updated on his condition over the next few weeks….Many from Jim’s church and others from the different high schools and colleges have been asking and again, “Big Jim” is on his way to making a major comeback……….
