What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and overall fitness since starting WOFB?  I feel fantastic!!!  My body is more toned, leaner, and my eating habits have improved tremendously.  Finally, I see definition in my back and arms…. WOOHOO!!  Thanks to the WOFB family and the amazing coaches for motivating me and keep pushing me out of my comfort zone.  Love you guys.
