Milton Fitness Camps Changing Habits, Lives

Milton Fitness Camps Changing Habits, Lives

MILTON, GA -- The City of Milton and CorePhysique's weekly fitness camps are changing both the habits and lives of participants, according to founder Kolleen Riddick.

At the Run for Cover 5K road race on Sunday, Jan. 23, seven Milton fitness campers took to the street, bringing home four medals.

Two honorees, Tracy Hosmer and Maggie Roberts, had never run in a race before, said Riddick. Hosmer came in second in her age bracket, while Roberts finished third.

"Running in my first race ever was both fun and rewarding," said Roberts. "Kolleen has encouraged me to face my fears and push myself to a higher level of fitness."

Kari Sykes said that, six months ago, she never would have been able to run the 3.1 miles. She placed first in her age bracket at the race.

"Thanks to the Milton fitness camp, I now have the physical and mental stamina to compete," she said.
