Spring has sprung, and the warmer weather means more business — and more time being active outside. But the physicality of roofing isn’t enough to keep you in tip-top shape. In this episode, Stan and Tiara chat with Walter Romano and Jon Vitolo of RK General Contracting in Dover Plains, NY. Despite a scaffolding accident that left part of Walter’s face and tongue numb and caused six herniated discs in his back, the guys motivate each other to make strength and conditioning training a priority. Listen as they share tips for starting or upping your workout routine.
