Since November 2009, I have been attending the Xlr8 Fitness Boot Camp with Emily Eoff (trainer), and it has changed my life. In the past, I paid money to attend gyms and in the end, it was all me. I had to motivate myself to keep going. I have never really been athletic so exercise was not something I looked forward to. I could think of so many reasons why I never had time. It never fails, I always wound up just paying until the contract was up. A friend of mine spoke so highly of Emily and knew that I was struggling with weight since I had a baby 2 years ago; so, with a little persuasion I made my New Year’s resolution a little early. I was in the military years ago, but this is not what you think of when you hear “boot camp”. The instructor is not in your face yelling and demoralizing you. Emily is a great teacher, motivator and inspiration to the members of this community. I have been attending Boot Camp for over two years and I’m hooked. I don’t have to do it alone anymore. I tell everyone I know about all the accomplishments I’ve made. I believe in myself for the first time in a long time. I’m a work in progress, but I feel better than I have in years.
