Two Case Studies:
Local Realtors have a Life-Changing Experience with Exercise

Sharon Straw has a zest for life. She is a successful business woman who starts and ends every day with a smile and gives 110 percent to any problem, project or person placed in her path. Over a 10-year span, she had three knee surgeries which left her with limited function and chronic pain. This sidelined her from favorite activities such as skating, dancing, biking and working out. She was gaining weight and losing confidence in her abilities.

Sharon was having a hard time accepting her limitations when she heard about Maureen Corristan and Sarasota Adventure Boot Camp. Because of Maureen’s extensive background in sports medicine and all of the elite and professional athletes on her resume, Sharon decided to try this unique functional fitness experience.

Sharon has dropped two dress sizes, lost 20 pounds and her cholesterol has dropped 47 points. She now can climb stairs and get out of the car with ease, as well as dance, ride a bike and work out, thanks to Maureen and Sarasota Adventure Boot Camp.

Amy Worth-Paul is one of the elite Realtors in the county and has received numerous accolades in her field. One area of her life she was not successful in was her personal health. Amy was overweight had high cholesterol and was a borderline diabetic and with a fear of exercise.

After winning a free month with Sarasota Adventure Boot Camp, Amy knew this was a wakeup call. She took the challenge to jump-start her fitness. Forty-two pounds and four dress sizes later, she returned to her doctor for her annual checkup. Her doctor was amazed at her health improvements. He took her off cholesterol medicine, her sugar returned to normal levels, and he her she did not have to come back for a year. Amy says she feels great, she has more energy and has overcome her fear of exercise.

Two different women with two different health challenges, they both had the same goal of improving their health. They each found the solution through Sarasota Adventure Boot Camp.
