  1. What is your favorite thing about your business/profession?

 “I do medical billing.  The satisfaction of getting a claim sent and paid.  Also figuring out why it didn’t pay.”

  1. Why did you incorporate fitness into your life?

“I was in my mid 50’s and losing weight was impossible, so I started working out.  When I started running, I couldn’t even run 20 yards.  I have completed 5 half marathons, and many triathlons.”

  1. When did you start working out at the Body Shop?

I always tell people to just do some sort of exercise.  You feel great when you’re finished.  The hardest part is that first step.  Take that first step and keep on going.”

“My coach is Bruce Clayton.  I couldn’t have a better coach.  He always has me physically ready for all my races.  He also encourages me and keeps me going strong! Adam Howard is always encouraging.  He always has a good comment for you when you have finished a hard workout.”
