Larry is also the Head Coach for Eleanor Roosevelt HS in Glenarden, Maryland. Eleanor Roosevelt HS has won 7 Md. state indoor track & field championships. Larry is the founder and President of the Glenarden Track Club since 1983. In 1993 Larry ran a 55.10 400m at 56 years old. That is quite an accomplishment. But, in 1994 his coach (Stan Mullins) introduced him to ARMPOWER+. After training with ARMPOWER+ for 1 year Larry ran a 53.33 400m at age 58 ! With this effort he captured the Silver Medal at the Masters World Championships in Buffalo, NY in 1995. Larry attributes the, near 2 second, drop in his time to the upper body strength that he gained by using ARMPOWER+. Larry said he never thought that he would run that fast again! "My coach and I were very pleased with the results. I continue to use ARMPOWER+ with my athletes on both the High School and the Summer Track programs."
