VIDEO of the WEEK

Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5   Spring break is here for many of you and before you know it summer will be here too! If you are still working to get that summer ready body, we have a place that will get you moving. Janey Walker likes nothing more than to get women motivated and moving, but it wasn't always that way. More than a decade ago, she was overweight and was on a roller coaster of yo-yo dieting since the sixth grade. Then one day, she tried out a fitness class and didn't hate it. It was the first step into a new life. Walker opened Get In Shape For Women three and a half years ago. The focus isn't how you look, but how you feel.
