I had wanted to join Anne’s bootcamp for quite some time before I actually joined. I always saw her posts on instagram that another bootcamp was starting but I always made some sort of excuse not to join, i.e I was too busy or something like that. But really I was just scared. Finally, last January, I decided to take the leap, and I am so happy that I did! Right from the first day I knew this wasn’t going to be like your typical workout class. I met some of the most amazing and kind-hearted girls I’ve ever met. All of the girls were so supportive and we all motivated each other inside and outside of the gym. Over the past few months, we’ve not only worked out together every Tuesday and Thursday, but we’ve made plans outside of the gym as well. These girls have truly become some of my closest friends! I still remember Anne saying during our very first class that we would all become the best of friends, and she was right. Anne has definitely helped me gain confidence not only physically, but mentally as well. She has taught me how to keep pushing, even when I’m tired and want to quit. What she has taught me pertains not only to working out but translates into important life skills as well. And she has been a true friend. I honestly don’t know where I would be today without her. She has helped me gain the confidence to try new things and never give up, and I will forever be grateful for her kind words and motivation.
