     Dr. Welling employs a staff of two personal trainers,
Tom Sobotor and Ash Morgan. They are certified by the
National Academy of Sports Medicine. Tom and Ash are
both lifelong residents of Warwick who are graduates of
Warwick Valley Central High School and as students, were
members of the Warwick Football Team.
     "The goal at F.A.S. Training is to get you into the shape
you desire, with a customized workout delivered at a pace
you can handle," says Tom. Having been through this pro-
gram as a client, Tom can speak volumes to its success.
     He suffered a broken ankle during his last season of
football at Warwick. The injury was severe enough to elim-
inate football during college and he continued to feed his
large frame at the rate he was used to, but without the exer-                                                                                There’s Nothing We Don’t Do
cise to work off the calories. When he graduated college, he
weighed a very unhealthy 355 pounds.
     When he returned to Warwick after college, Tom
signed on as a client with Dr. Welling. Four years and 100
pounds later, Tom’s interest in healthy exercise returned
with a motivation to help other people achieve the same
success. It did not take much convincing for him to leave a
job at a New York City advertising firm, and join the team
at F.A.S.
     The approach that Dr. Welling, Tom and Ash take
rejects the dogma requiring training in the gym: a regular
cycle, with the same equipment, at the same pace, no mat-
ter what your goal.                                                The members of F.A.S Training are taking the Monday

       In the United States, the day on which the most food is
 consumed each year is Thanksgiving. But the day of the
 Super Bowl ranks a close second. In fact, at Reliant
 Stadium alone in Houston, site of Super Bowl XXXVIII in
 2004, the live crowd on hand for the game polished off
 approximately 15,000 hot dogs, 9,000 gallons of soft drinks,
 6,400 cookies, 4,000 baked potatoes, 3,000 barbecue sand-
 wiches and 260 gallons of chili. Figures are still out on
 nachos, french fries and ice cream.

       With all the hype surrounding the Super Bowl, NFL his-
 tory often gets lost. For example, what do you know about
 the very first official NFL championship game? On
 December 17, 1933, the Chicago Bears defeated the New
 York Giants 23-21 to take the title. Surprisingly, the winning
 touchdown came on a very modern play – a flea-flicker.
 Bronko Nagurski threw a short pass to Bill Hewitt, who lat-
 eralled to Bill Kerr, who ran in for the score.
