Poor Bill Phillips Got COVID

I am not posting this to be political, just an example of what COVID can do to a fit and healthy person. 😢 Itís heartbreaking to see him like this.

I tried to post the photos, but it didnít work. He doesnít look very healthy right now. I hope heís able to regain the strength he has lost. Itís so shocking how something so tiny can do so much damage.

I didn't know who this person was, but I read his story. YIKES! No matter how healthy you think you are, don't mess with this virus. He's going to have a LONG road to recovery.

I think it's sad, however I will jump in to say that I knew this man in the past. Not only personally but also professionally. That "before" picture of him was him in his 30's. He's now in his mid to late 50's. That's not what has happened to him since he got covid. He had some injuries since the "before" picture was taken that has affected his physique, and some other things he did in his younger days that he admits to, which could have affected his health to begin with.

I do think covid can have some bad affects, however I want to make sure the air is cleared that this did not strike down a man that looked like that, into the man he is now. That picture is a promo picture from his EAS/Body for Life days.

I do wish him well on his healing journey. I am not trying to diminish where he is now, but I was shocked that they were holding up that picture as the "before" as if that's what he looked like in May.

Please don't shout me down. I just wanted to make sure you guys knew that you can't compare a picture of someone 20 years ago to what they look like now, covid or not.

He wrote "Body for Life" and "Eating for Life." Both were pretty popular books about 20ish years ago.

I think you made some valid points. I wonder what his real "before" picture looks like and why they would use this old picture for the contrast to the way he looks today.

Like I said before. Covid doesnít segregate. It can hit anyone. At any time
Tht is a really really sad photo of bill. I still have his book. Even after he sold EAS he was still a good coach. Been through a lot.
