Sometimes life just gets in the way of the best intentions, especially when it comes to eating right and exercising.

Joe Cordaro, Georgene Upshaw, Lisa Holocker, Steve Johnston and Jessica King understand that very well.

When we met them last April, they began the journey to get healthy. They all got off to a good start, but then summer arrived.

Schedules were changed, temptations were everywhere, and motivation was lacking.

So Joe Butler, of Prescription Fitness, thought it was time they get "back to school," so to speak. He arranged for them to meet with a trainer and revamp their current workout to get their muscles and metabolism moving again. 

Except for Jessica. The young mother of three knew she had to be careful because of a spinal injury sustained in a car accident last year.

After visiting her doctors, she was advised to stop her current exercise program. Jessica was devastated. But they agreed to let her do water exercises and Butler was putting together a program as soon as Jessica could find a gym with a pool.
