I started looking for an exercise program in January 2015 on doctor’s orders to find a way to relieve stress. When I happened upon the 4 week boot camp at TFC and I had a cruise planned in exactly 4 weeks, I decided to give it a try. I had not worked out in over 10 years and my job requires a lot of sitting, so I was immediately challenged by the workout. I was so sore and I could hardly roll over in bed! But within 2 weeks, I was already feeling better and stronger. When I came back from my cruise, I signed up for a 6 month class (and I’m now on the 12 month package). I also started making lifestyle changes – cutting out soda, watching my protein and ditching the lean cuisines at lunch for homemade salads and veggies. I found our awesome trainer, Kerry Walsh, and the Coles Crossing Evening ladies to be fun and encouraging – I never feel judged when I can’t quite keep up. Now, a year later, I look forward to workout nights and hate to miss a class. I have lost pounds and inches – but most importantly, I feel better physically and mentally!
