Before Boot camp, I struggled with weight, could not run, or even walk very far. I had 50 extra pounds on my frame and I looked years older. I am now an active person and love to run, hike, bike, skate, and swim. Boot camp works because of the great coach and the great ladies that come to class. Chris has the ability to work all different levels of fitness, and she also does a great job of helping you set realistic goals–not just about exercise–but also about nutrition and long term fitness. For a gal whose doc told her she’d never run again 5 years ago, I’ve managed to run 5 half marathon’s in the last year and a half. I highly recommend it!
