I feel like I haven't got much of a story compared to other Lonedoggers who have achieved amazing things. I haven't run a marathon, I haven't lost huge amounts of weight but I am extremely proud that I have improved my health. Being apart of Lonedog for me is a never ending journey that I am totally addicted to!
I started Boot Camp 4 years ago after moving to Albury from a very small rural town called Quirindi. Before moving to Albury I lived in Sydney and was heavily involved in Surf Lifesaving. Moving away from the beach was costly to my body I significantly reduced my physical activity levels and I was the heaviest I had been EVER!!
I wanted to get fitter but I was nervous because I was new to town and I had only ever done training with team mates and never with strangers. I joined with a friend which has kept me motivated. I still remember my first fitness test. 100 star jumps, 90 squats, 80 mountain climbers….. It hurt, I was sore, but I survived. Toward the end of the camp I remember doing a running session next to Shannon at South Albury and I was like “I really like this I want to keep going!”. And so I did. I am totally addicted. I love having a week off at the end of a camp but at the same time I hate it! Boot Camp is apart of my routine, it is a habit! I remember I missed a camp over a Christmas period and I think I text Shannon and Cheryl every few days asking them how long until I can join the next camp.
Its not just the training that I love, I also love how much I learn from doing boot camp. I am a PE teacher but I think I have almost learnt more from Shannon and Cheryl than I have in my whole Uni degree. I love learning about foam rolling, heart rate training, kettle bells, running technique, sleep etc etc and how it can improve me. I am also currently in the Nutrition Group which I also love. I have learnt so much about my habits and the way the body uses food. After completing this program and combining with Boot Camp I feel like I'll be the fittest and healthiest I have ever been. I am making progress towards my goal and looking forward to getting the bikini body out for Christmas holidays!

Since joining Boot Camp I have significantly improved as a Netballer. It has been obvious to myself and my coaches that my strength, agility, speed, reaction time and fitness have significantly improved all because of doing 3 well structured sessions per week. My students have also benefited from my newly acquired wealth of knowledge.
Lastly the people at Boot Camp are another reason why I have come back time and time again. They are friendly, supportive, helpful, funny and give great high fives! There is also that rascal that calls himself the King of Boot Camp, well isn't he lucky that I came along!
I have been sitting in a bath of Epsom salts writing this. My legs have been sore from a session that I did 48hrs ago but it is a feeling that I have become addicted to. I am extremely grateful that Shannon and Cheryl are so passionate about improving each individual at Lonedog. You will succeed, you will love it and trust me you will become addicted!
