"I have been a fitness junkie since 2000. It was a major lifestyle change for me involving nutrition, exercise, & vitamins. Prior to boot camp I practiced traditional Japanese Shotokan karate for 4 years in which I did some instructing in cardio kickboxing. Sparring was my favorite. My Sensei referred to me as 'killer.'"
