The Yuma Sun, Yuma, Ariz, reports on a new fitness center at the Marine Corps Air Station Yuma that ratchets exercise up a notch.

The physical therapy program helps injured personnel recover with specialized stretches, strength training, electroshock therapy, professional advice, and detailed recovery plans.
