From La Vonn -

I had been lifting weights, doing different cardio exercises, and trying the various fitness routines from the videos sold on infomercials and the routines in the leading fitness magazines with no real success. I got bored doing the same old routines at the same slow pace. After doing my own research and trying out various equipment, I created the Ball Control Fitness program and formed BCF Wellness to help people incorporate fitness into their overall wellness and be their best. BCF Wellness focuses on the individual and we design programs to challenge and guide you to your goals.
