Club owner writes book while rehabbing

Those with a love for fitness, health and well-being often have a drive to always better themself. Sally Goldman is no different.

Goldman, the co-founder of the Weymouth Club in Weymouth, Mass., suffered a major injury, one that would take months to recuperate. Instead of lounging on the couch - no one would expect a gym owner to do that - she decided to pen a book, "Lizzy the Lucky Lab."

The book follows the canine who also suffered a setback. With the support of friends and family, as well as her own strength and courage, Lizzy, not unlike Sally, gets back to the way her life was prior to the setback.
