Jenelle Ratcliffe

I started going to The Bootcamp Effect in May of this year because I needed a change. I wanted to focus on my health and becoming the best version of myself that I could be. I have been active ever since I was a little baby Jenelle. I danced competitively all throughout elementary and high school, taught dance class for a couple years, and then my fitness took a turn for the boring. I tried the Bikram yoga thing and the running-on-the-treadmill thing but I was really just going through the motions; I was never pushing myself beyond my comfort zone. Bootcamp has changed all of that. My first week at Bootcamp I felt like I got run over by a semi-truck. And I loved it! I am in the best shape I have been in a long time. I also get to fulfill my shameless need for competition by trying to out-squat my fellow bootcampers or out-run them or whatever other weird sort of competition Josh comes up with at the time. As I am a registered massage therapist by profession, I recognize that taking care of the body and the mind are two very important aspects of life. Bootcamp gets the joints moving, the muscles contracting, the blood pumping, the endorphins flowing, etc. which decreases risk of injury and also sensations of pain. Bootcamp is a great stress reliever as well. I come every morning at 8:30 and I get to see my awesome friends and go nuts on the punching bag or flip a freakin tire! I don’t know what I did before Bootcamp and I don’t know what I’d do if I ever stopped going. Probably cry a lot. So come join us cause it’s the sweatiest, best time you’ll ever have.
