Carl Lewis is a 10-time Olympic medal winner in track and field. Nine of those were gold! He also set world records in various track and field relays.
Since his retirement, Lewis, one of the world’s most famous Olympians in history, has made it a point to empower people to enhance their lives through physical fitness.
One of the ways he is doing that now is through his website, FitForever.com. The website is a fitness community that has been referred to as a “fitness Facebook.”
