Boys were not interested in sports growing up or in school, no coordination, concentration and had a hard time fitting in, I thought they just weren't to be sporty… after graduating I was getting worried they'd end up video game couch potatoes! I never thought that I could see such a transformation with my sons, they are confident, healthy, more independent and are so focused and successful at their sports, they train everyday.Karren Thibeault: Jesse and Zach's mom
