First, This community that Channel and Tommy have created is one of the most amazing things I have been a part of. I am blessed by each and every one of you!!
YIPEEEE! I am honored and excited to be the spotlight boot camper!!! I have been coming to ABC for about 3 years with about a year of 'barley' there. I have always been active and enjoyed working out. I played tennis and ran track in high school, did aerobics and ran in college, did the whole gym thing and videos for several years. A great friend of mine kept telling me to try this amazing 'boot camp' workout. To be honest, I was a little intimidated and kept making excuses. She was pretty relentless so I finally caved to see what it was all about......need I say more.....HOOKED!!
I married the most amazing man 12 years ago. He has loved and cared for me and my sons as his own. He has always supported anything and everything I have wanted to do. About 3 years ago we hit the darkest time in our lives. Many of you know the details, we won't go into them now. We spent about a year just 'being'. It was all we could do to go on with our days. Without a strong faith in God we would have crumbled. I know He has a marvelous plan for our family and we are resting in Him until that time comes. I am happy to say we are crawling out of our darkness. One more obstacle to overcome and all prayers will be answered. This boot camp family has supported me, lifted me up, encourage me, prayed for me and been a place of happiness in my life. Not only am I getting healthy and fit but I am loving every moment of it and making great friendships.
I will close with saying 'Thank you' to ABC. I feel stronger and healthier than ever. The coaches that are part of ABC are 'THE BEST'!! God bless you all!!!
