‘He’s sort of a doctor of fitness,’ says Jack Welch, the corporate legend who headed General Electric from 1981 to 2001. When Mr. Welch suffered a bacterial staph infection in 2009, he was holed up in the hospital for more than three months and had difficulty walking when he returned home to recover. He turned to Mr. Sitaras to help him get back on his feet.‘A lot of my legs and arms had atrophied — it was pretty ugly,’ Mr. Welch says. ‘John really brought me back.’ Today, Mr. Welch is back on the golf course and, at 76, makes fitness training part of his routine.
