Angela started Inspired to Pick-Fit Booty Camps in her parent’s garage in 2013 with just a few close clients. After two years, she moved her little operation to a warehouse in Laconia, where IPF truly began to make a mark on the Lakes Region. After just 3 years IPF moved again to a beautiful new facility at 505 Province Road in Laconia. At this time, CKO Kickboxing was added to the scene.

Angela had a dream about creating a space for people to come together. Not only to learn about transforming their bodies without killing themselves in and out of the gym and to learn about nutrition for fat loss and health, but also to feel safe, without judgement or competition.

With IPF, she has accomplished that goal. When the clients are asked what makes IPF different, the number one response is how comfortable people feel. They are never judged, and always supported and encouraged.

“… I really just want to teach people the path of least resistance. There are so many myths when it comes to fat loss and transforming our bodies. I know, scientifically, what it takes, and I want to give our clients the ‘secret’ sauce so that they are no longer confused and have a clear move toward their goals.

I’ve worked with over 1000 clients, and I can tell you from working with them and my own personal struggles with fat loss, that fat loss has more to do with overcoming our mental obstacles than learning the science. I can teach someone the science all day long, but if we don’t work on the internal struggles, then we aren’t going to get very far.” ~Angela P.
