    6/15/2019 10:50:02 PM, by DETERMINEDJANET

    My day began about 6 a.m. to make sure a tired Maegann got up and off to work on time. I then took my spot on the sofa to wait it all out with my nap buddies. I set my alarm for 7:30 just in case I were to doze off as Isaac needed up for his time out with Patrick. After they both left by 7:... Read more

  • Gotta Move Studio First Personal Training Client

    6/10/2019 9:32:20 AM, by ADAMST3

    I'm so grateful for our three hundred square foot studio-room!
