Meet Christine

I had always wanted to go to “Boot Camp”, but always thought – “Not me, I could never do that”. It was WAY too early in the morning, I would never be able to keep up with everyone, etc., etc. The excuses were many and some much more creative than others. I grew up a book worm, way too self-conscious to enjoy physical activities. I dreaded P.E. class growing up. (Kids can be so cruel to each other.)
