Jeannetta Elliott (also known as Lady J and “E”) is 43 years young and is DHS/DDS Case Manager Supervisor. She has been a part of Bootcamp Tulsa for 1 year and 2 months.
Lady J’s favorite aspect of BcT is they are not only concerned about your physical appearance but they are concerned about your spiritual, emotional, and financial wellbeing. She explains, “You can look good but still be broken on the inside. At BcT there is always someone willing to pray for you. The prayers of the righteous availeth much. When you know someone is praying for your break through that is a wonderful thing.”
The ladies that Jeannette works out with at Southside and Jenks are what keep her coming back to BcT. Her first encounter was meeting Jill, Jodi, Jessie and Jacque. She says they were warm and inviting and welcomed her in. She did not feel like a stranger, and they really challenged her. She says, “I’m extremely competitive so to be the BEST I had to work out with the BEST! That was my thought when working out with these ladies at the South Tulsa Location. And it was cool that all of our names begin with the letter J. Add Jeannetta and it’s all good. All of the ladies have been FABTASTIC!!! I can’t say enough about the coaches. I met Coach AJ first. His intensity was off the chart. Then I met Coach JC. That’s intensity times 10. And then there’s Coach Justin who loved to watch us “chase the pain”. I still don’t know what that means but I definitely felt the pain after his workout. I love that they challenge me and help push me to the next level. I’ve always been active in sports or participated in some type of exercise but Bootcamp was the extra that I needed to get me going in the right direction physically and spiritually.”
Jeannetta has lost 13 pounds since she started BcT. Her goal was to get down to 145 pounds. She got down to 140 pounds. She said she could never get under 150 pounds so this was a big accomplishment for her.
BcT has done wonders for Jeannetta’s family. Her husband Michael Elliott was the one that told her about BcT. Michael is also a participant in the Fit First Responders program. Seeing his transformation has been the best part of Jeannette’s experience. She explains, “He looks great and his attitude has changed for the better. My husband is happy, which makes me happy. And he has a smoking, hot, rocking body baby!!! My attitude about me has changed also. I am the best version of me and I strive to keep getting better. I POP. I’m Positive On Purpose.”
Spiritually, Jeannetta is more thankful that God continues to bless her and watch over her family. She says, “God has placed people in my life (Jodi, Rebecca, Sharon, Deedra, Q, Misty, Shannon) that remind me that I don’t have to do life alone. All of these ladies have reached out to me at some point. And amazingly it was during times I needed them. Their prays and texts are uplifting. Emotionally, I’m at peace. As far as having more energy, I’ve always been energetic but now I’m turned up!!!”
As for advice for someone considering joining BcT, Lady J says, “Just do it! It’s more than a workout. It’s so contagious, once you try it, you won’t stop. Faith, Family & Fun! You can’t beat .”
