Goldstein giving back through 'Boot Camp'

by Laura Stabbert
LIBERTY — “We’re going through tough times and if I can help people focus on feeling better, I’m happy to,” Rhoda Goldstein said.
Goldstein is putting on a free “Boot Camp” once a week at the Liberty High School to provide a positive outlet for the community.
Goldstein has been working in the fitness field for more than 30 years. She has owned her own business “Rhoda’s Personal Trainer and Palates” in Liberty for the past 25 years and wanted to give back to her community.
“I’m trying to create exercise that’s fun,” Goldstein said.
Goldstein explained that everybody at the “Boot Camp” works at their own pace, a level that is comfortable for them.
She noted it’s a total body workout for anybody and everybody in a supportive atmosphere.
This is Goldstein’s second year providing a free six-week long “Boot Camp” and she plans to do it again next year.
“If it continues to go this well I will extend it over weeks, I’m happy to see the community take advantage of something that is free, and if I can motivate people to have fun while exercising then it’s my pleasure.
“We want to smile and sweat,” Goldstein added.
