Milton fitness camp changing habits, lives.


The City of Milton and CorePhysique’s weekly fitness camps are changing both the habits and lives of participants, said founder Kolleen Riddick.

At the Run for Cover 5K road race Jan. 23, seven Milton fitness campers took to the streets, bringing home four medals. Two of those, Tracy Hosmer and Maggie Roberts, had never run in a race before, said Riddick. Hosmer came in second in her age bracket, while Roberts placed 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 six months ago she never would have been able to run the 3.1 miles. She came in first in her age bracket at the race.

“Thanks to the Milton fitness camp, I now have the physical and mental stamina to compete,” said Sykes.

Want to be one of the people changing her life through improved fitness? The next thrice-weekly, 12-class session is scheduled from Feb. 7 to March 4.
