@ VOL 4 ON DEC 04, 2014

Caroline is a runner. It hasn't alwasy been this way and she shows us her journey to becoming a runner through a series of life lessons that apply to us all. Don't listen to that little voice that says you can't do it, she urges, "it's a liar."

From Bad to Bonkers, Anywhere, Anytime

@ VOL 4 ON DEC 04, 2014

PT Denis used to be a bad boy but through the loving guidance of his father, and his tragic loss in a fatal plane crash, he re-routed his manic energy into physical fitness and natural highs. Embracing his 'bonkers' nature, PT Denis has performed in front of festival audiences of thousands and works with young people to chose the right path. His engery is contagious.
