When I got word that I'm Spotlight Boot Camper, I was speechless. I love to talk and chatter, but writing, I'm not good at. Ever since I started at ABC, I didn't know if I would like it or not. I first started coming once a month (Nov. & Dec. 2013, & Jan 2014) with Colleen. Ana, my daughter, would also encourage me to workout. By 1st of February, I was hooked. It's like an addiction and a good one at that. I come at least 4 days a week, sometimes 5. Over the past 6-months, I have met some awesome people who I am proud to call friends. And definitely cannot forget the coaches. You guys rock!!!! This year has really changed my outlook and attitude on life. I have been told since I started working out, I'm a lot happier & healthier. Even my husband would ask me, 'Are you going to work out today & I would say yes!, He would say Good'! Ana & I are alot closer than ever before. :-) I have set goals for myself this year. I did Beach to Bay for the first time this year and I'm hooked. Cannot wait until next year!. I will be doing the Rock n Roll Marathon (1/2 marathon) on December 7 (My birthday & I will be 45 this year). I hope I can take what I have learned & accomplished so far and pass it on to the next person. You guys have been such an inspiration. Let's get Grounds for Krazy!
Congratulations Joann and keep up the great job! I always notice you working so hard on the WOD's - even when they stink!!!!

Well I knew once she came to class with me ,she'd be hooked! I knew Joann many years ago when I taught her daughter Ana who is now my sons girlfriend, and then she was a friendly happy go person. Ten years later we meet again and she hasnt changed. Such a nice person to know and to workout with or even better, run several 5ks with and ready and willing to run B2B this year on my team. Shes a hard worker at ABC and has come along way since February. With her daughter Ana motivating her along the way , she has become a sronger and healthier eating person. Congrats Joann as you deserve this!!!! Keep up the good work.
