    Barbara is a wonderful instructor! She is tough and encouraging so you always feel you can give her a little bit more. I've actually missed boot camp this summer and I'm looking forward to the start up in September. I felt my progress before I saw it on the scale. I like all the variations in the workouts so you never know what each class will bring.

    Barbara is amazing for the unmotivated and motivated! She has constantly changing workouts that she lets you modify according to your ability. Barbara explains how to do each exercise to get the most benefit for your body. I have given her complete credit for reshaping my body! Barbara takes personal interest in you and even though some workouts are pretty feel like you have really conquered the world when your finished!

    Barbara is a very energetic person and keeps her classes interesting and very light hearted. Barbra understands the needs of those that must make modifications to their workout. She helps those individuals find that right modification that will still give them the best workout. After many years of not working out it was hard to keep up that first six weeks of boot camp. Barbra never let us down she just kept on encouraging everyone to do what they can the best they can.

    I thoroughly enjoy working out with Barbara. She keeps the workouts fun and interesting while challenging you at the same time. She encourages each of us to do our best. I never feel left out even when I'm lagging behind, she's right there with me.

    Barbara is my hero! Through her boot camp class at Immanuel I have been able to lose 70 pounds. The first night I went I thought, "Oh man! This class is way above my station." But through perseverance and because of Barbara's attitude I kept going. She is fun and funny and she makes workouts seem like play - unless she brings the paper plates!!! I have more energy and actually look forward to Tuesday and Thursday nights. She makes working out a pleasure - well at least most of the time! I can't wait to get back to boot camp in the fall! Thanks Barbara!
