She thought it would turn out to be just a few close friends working out together, but just two weeks into H3 Boot Camp more than 90 women are lacing up their running shoes.
Jessica Bailey, an East Texas mother looking to get healthy, started a group on Facebook for women to get together to work out. Local instructors volunteer their time every Monday and Thursday to lead the class for free. Bailey had heard about other women who had started free work-out programs in other cities and decided to bring the concept to Bullard.
“It’s not just about how you look, it’s just about how you feel and being able to be active with your kids and playing around. I mean that’s my main goal and my main purpose is just to be active for my kids, I don’t want to be a super model, I just want to be in better shape for them,” Bailey said.
Bailey says the group isn't just about physical health, it is about spiritual health too.
The city offered the park as one option to host classes and a church across the street has also offered to host classes inside during bad weather.
