“I have a funny story about DeAnna! While she and her training partner (and good friend) would crack each other up and get into a giggle moment that would also make me laugh out loud – she always finished her sessions talking to me about VBall 10,000! I loved the updates and I believe it helped keep her true to her goal! Announcing our goals and “making them public” can help us all stick to the plan! WAY TO GO, DeAnna! Congratulations and we here at COACH‘EM UP are super proud of your accomplishment! Wear that t-shirt with great pride!!”
