MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) - A facility aimed at rehabilitation and wellness was burglarized Saturday night.

"We were left with two [body vibration] machines of the eight, all the monitors are gone, the infrared saunas are gone," said Chip Wilson, owner and founder of My 180. Also stolen was an alkaline water machine and other random items and pieces of furniture.

Wilson already filed a report with Madison Police and says there is no sign of forced entry, and he feels his business was targeted.

But he says his biggest concern is the well-being of his members.

"When you're dealing with veterans and you're dealing with elderly people, my heart goes out to them," he said. "I built this for them. It's called 'My 180,' I did that so they took ownership of their health."

Much of his clientele have serious health issues that his body vibration machines help rehab. Some clients even regaining their ability to walk.

"A lot of them are people who have tried everything and this feels like their last chance and it's working," said gym member Ali Turner. "In my case I'm battling Lyme disease."

Now the gym is left with only two vibration machines and one sauna. Wilson says he'll be there working so the well of his members won't be stolen as well.
