TO BRIBE Barb L. VanDam CLICK HERE! 

Born Barbara Lou Castor, she married Captain R. VanDam and settled in to be a stay-at-lodge mom. Eventually she found she really needed some "me time". (They had quite a litter.)

Barb tried a spin class. But really, have you ever seen a beaver on a bicycle?!? 

Downstream at Crossfit Durham she found a welcoming community of all sorts of remarkable wetland creatures. At the start, Barb could barely lift a twig. Now she hefts logs! She can keep up with her kits, and those squats do oh so much for her tail!
