Fit Camp was a special experience I hope to repeat yearly! I left firmer, stronger with a new view on health! Tina is the most supportive instructor (cum life coach at times) I have ever encountered. Throughout interval training and dance fitness, she was also giving guidance for life. Her energy permeates the fitness camp and the energy of fellow students Quite Supportive!! Planning on going to many other fitness camps in the future!!- Courtney. G

THE ART OF FITNESS
"BE YOURSELF, Everyone is already taken!"
You don't need a special place or special time to pray. You don't need to be in a special mood to pray. Praying is like breathing, - continuous, essential, life-giving - praying is the conversation with God you start with birth and continue into old age. Praying is your celebration of God, - everything you do, everything you think, everything you say is another word, another sentence of your prayer. We are ALL standing on shoulders that paved the way before us. Negative thoughts and words show the lack of the 'God' in YOU!.

Tina, My thoughts on Fit Camp: JUST WHAT I NEEDED.
I had such a great time this weekend. I looked at the price tag before going, and was a little weary, but something told me it would all be worth it, and it was. It turned out to be a mental and physical release, and a great bonding experience. I thought a lot over the weekend - a lot of things are going on, and when I said "betrayal" on the bus survey, it's because that has been a feeling I've experienced a lot these days unfortunately - but sweating, working hard, laughing, and focusing on something else has put me at peace. And we had the perfect balance of work and "enjoying the amenities" which was so important. Also, the nutrition talk was great. Glad we had that discussion. It was fun getting to know other people on the trip. I see Rose and Connie every Friday, but I knew nothing about them. But after the morning walks, sharing meals, and horseback riding with them, I feel closer to them.
I didn't have any sort of huge discussion with either of them, sometimes you dont need words to get closer to people, just experiences. And Z - after the classes on Friday, I relaized, she is the girl I see every time I am Crowne, staking out her corner of the studio while we rehearse! Now she is not just that girl I have to avoid bumping into while I am dancing, lol. There really wouldn't be anything I'd change for the next time. One thing I'd like to be added to the agenda next time is a hike. I was really looking forward to hiking sometime over the weekend, that would have been awesome. I would keep the group the same size we were, even if that meant putting people on a wait list. Oh, maybe some more meditation could be added. The Yoga sessions were awesome and really relaxing so maybe we could throw some meditation in there too. And the food.....SOOOOO GOOOD. I haven't eaten like that in awhile, and now that I took my oath, I won't be stuffing my face with a second plate for a long time....lol.
