Shelly Phillips used to hate working out. And we know many people who can relate. So how did she go from gym hater to sweat lover? By combining exercise with something she loves!

I used to hate my workouts. Sure, I did them, but I was frustrated, grumbling, and upset the entire time. I dreaded going to the gym, and did almost anything I could think of to get out of it. At the slightest hint of a cold, I was so relieved to have a good excuse not to work out that I milked it for all I could. Then, something changed.
