"I used to hate going to the gym because I thought all I could do is cardio and I never had experience lifting weights. Having boot camp as a way to learn the basics of weights while having a group of people to push you to do better as well as struggle with is what motivates me to keep coming back. Not only that but as someone who dislikes a crowded gym, getting your workout done before anyone is awake gives an accomplished feeling and sets up my day on a positive note." -Anna Buck, student
