My Fabulous Disease
Hitting the Gym With HIV Fitness Stud Nelson Vergel
I'd like to extend a special thanks to The Poverello Center in Ft Lauderdale. Poverello not only provides food for people with AIDS, they opened the Friends Fitness Center and graciously allowed Nelson and me to film this video there. And speaking of filming, my friend Kai patiently worked the cameras for several hours and I appreciate it.
Still to come: Nelson takes me on an eye-opening tour of the grocery store -- and cautions me about walking down the aisles.
Thanks for watching, my friends, and please be well.
