I have the wonderful opportunity of attending Jenn Hendershott's PHAT Camp in Phoenix, at the end of this month.

For those who dont' know who she is, she is the reigning Miss Olympia 2008. She takes time out of her busy life to teach women like me how to exercise and eat right. She also throws in a bit of competition training (which will never apply to me, not my thing). This pic is from her recent Olympia win.

Here are some FAQ's from her site:

What does Phat Camp stand for?
Well it can stand for whatever you want it to stand for, but in Jen’s terms is stands for Power, Hard work, Ambition, and Triumph.

Will Jen Hendershott be at the camp all weekend?
YES! Jen is Phat camp and with out her there is NO camp. Jen will talk and walk you through the entire weekend. She will train with you, have lunch with you, sign pictures for you, spend one on one time with you, and she might even share a tear or two with you. Jen gets up close and personal about her successes and failures. Jen will not be performing at camp but will share videos from the past competitions. Jen is also assisted by a great group of women that are called the PC UNIT. (Phat Camp Unit/Staff)

Is Phat camp right for me?
Phat camp is a camp designed for women who want to learn about being the best they can be. Train with Fitness International champion and Ms. Fitness Olympia champion 2005, (and now 2008) Jen Hendershott. For 4 years Jen has dominated the world with her knowledge and excitement for life through the creation of Phat Camp. 2008 will mark her 6th year of opportunities to helping women all over the world. You will work one on one for 2 1/2 days with the founder of phat camp Jen Hendershott and her highly energized staff. During this time with Jen she will go over creative ways to make cardio more fun, you will learn exciting new exercises, and so many great ways to eat and cook healthy. Learn things you didn't know and get your questions answered by a professional. Simply, find motivation and confidence by attending a Phat Camp. Leave the weekend ready to conquer the world. There is so much to learn. There are seminars, weeks of training programs for you to take home, and memories to last a life time. This is the ONLY place you can go for a weekend and share the same interests with women of your kind. Don't worry the drama is left at the door and this is NOT a competition. You will love Phat Camp! Come enjoy this amazing experience with the most humble woman in the sport of fitness.

But will I be too Fat for Phat camp?
Absolutely not! Phat Camp is for the mainstream woman, housewife, business owner, mother, competitor, and women of all shapes and sizes. Phat camp is where you come to get the motivation you are each looking for. Everyone has a different story, a different goal, and different purpose. You will fit right in!

Should I be afraid of Phat Camp, will I fit in, am I too old?
The camp is for everyone. You have to trust us when we tell you this camp is for everyone looking to learn. If you are in a rut, need motivation, need new ideas, getting bored, or what a boost, then PC is for you! This is the most common question we get from women all over the world. Let us reassure you: Our oldest camper was 64 and our youngest was 13. We have new moms, competitors, grandma's, business women, athletes, cancer survivors, and all walks of life at these camps. We believe in each individual and we believe you can accomplish anything at camp. YOU will fit in and we can't wait to work with you.
