Cari Draft of EcoTrek Fitness only knows one speed: fast. So for her, founding a unique outdoor fitness company that has grown to 12 locations around West Michigan was not enough. Add to her list of conquests a regular radio program, a new TV show, and a line of fitness bars that are set to take the Midwest by storm.

A fitness bar that actually tastes good goes "viral"

Sudden Cardiac Arrest

EMS treats about 300,000 victims of out‐of‐hospital cardiac arrest each year in the U.S. Less than eight percent of people who suffer cardiac arrest outside the hospital survive.

Sudden cardiac arrest is not the same as a heart attack. Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when electrical impulses in the heart become rapid or chaotic, which causes the heart to suddenly stop beating. A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to part of the heart muscle is blocked. A heart attack may cause cardiac arrest.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

Less than one‐third of out‐of‐hospital sudden cardiac arrest victims receive bystander CPR.
Effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a victim's chance of survival.
