In 100 words or less, tell us about your fitness journey.

Well, it started with Jane Fonda and Cindy Crawford on my VHS…seriously. I was young and that worked for me at the time. It was sporadic. I got a trainer when I was going through a divorce…YAY! (Referring to the trainer and, in retrospect, the divorce as well). Started working with another trainer after I had my 3rd child here in OBA.  Then came MOXIE. I realized that a combo of MOXIE classes gave me the same training I was getting, but cheaper, and more diverse. ALL IN! Is that less than 100 words?
