Davison Man Sheds 260 Pounds at Anytime Fitness

“Brian Dunaway has every right to be proud of his accomplishment. After years of obesity, the 31-year-old laid-off iron worker from Davison Township has shaved more than 260 pounds from a 500-pound, 6-foot, 1-inch frame to now weigh a muscular 240 pounds. He did it by turning away from fatty foods, adopting a healthy lifestyle and getting into a regular exercise routine. He said he is not done losing weight and fat yet, but he is so excited about his achievement that he wants to help others adopt a healthy lifestyle. ‘I want to give back,’ said the father of two, who spends six days a week at Anytime Fitness at 618 N. State Road. It looks like Dunaway will be able to sing the praises of healthy living on a national basis soon. Anytime Fitness, an 800,000-member company based in Hastings, Minn., plans to feature Dunaway in a 30-second TV commercial that will air in various TV markets across the country, including the Flint area. ‘It’s going to be all about Brian and his accomplishment,’ said Mark Daly, national media director for Anytime Fitness, which has 1,200 clubs internationally, including four in the Flint area. ‘What he has done is truly tremendous,’ Daly added. ‘It speaks volumes of what Brian has achieved.’ Daly expects the commercial to start airing before Thanksgiving.”
