StairMasters were in short supply the day Camille Dulany met Dan Helling, who stood out because he wasn't just on any StairMaster, he was on her StairMaster. The former “big meathead weight lifter” was trying to lose weight in an effort to get a “smaller runner-type” physique, which was why he looked more like he was ready to rob a convenience store in full sweats with the hood up.
Instead of simply conceding the cardio machine, Dan ask Camille to burn calories by walking around the track with him. A few laps later, he asked her out. And the rest is history—23 years of history to be exact.
Together for more than two decades, Camille has learned a lot about how to roll with the punches. The couple loved being active together until Dan fell out of a deer stand last fall and broke his back, all of his ribs, and his foot . “Our active lifestyle has had to change a bit since then,” Camille says, “but we both still love the outdoors and we still go to the YMCA." Dan also lifts weights with their kids and hopes to get back to cardio as soon as his injuries heal.
