When Stephanie Dignan left her job as a financial adviser to start her own fitness business, she had no idea she was about to change hundreds of lives. Just four months earlier, the Glenelg High School and University of Maryland graduate began teaching boot camp classes at a local gym. “I thought, 'Why not? I'll do it for fun,'” Dignan says. But that fun quickly developed into a passion -- one Dignan wanted to pursue full time. So in 2008, she launched her solo venture, The Boot Camp Girl LLC, with hopes of taking her boot camp skills and fitness ideas to clients across Howard County.

The lights are low and the bass is thumping, but the cycle room at Rev Cycle Studio in McHenry Row is no dance club. Halfway into the studio's Rev60 Zen class -- a “fusion” of 40 minutes of cycling and 20 of yoga -- a dozen cyclists are pedaling (and sweating) hard, following instructor Esther Collinetti's demands to go harder. Fast-forward another 15 minutes. The same group is now quietly sinking into Warrior pose in the studio's small, warm yoga room, with Collinetti directing stretches and meditation.

Atholton High School's Miles Walker recently captured the state's top prize in an American Legion national government instruction program, an accomplishment that for the 16-year-old rising senior was nearly a lifetime in the making. The Columbia resident was an infant when his mother, Lisa Walker Woodyard, first read about the Boys State program in the memoir of President Bill Clinton, who attended as a 16-year-old himself. The regimented instruction program was launched by the American Legion in 1935 to counter the Soviet Union's Young Pioneer camps and according to the American Legion strives to teach civic duty via role playing as state and local politicians.

Members of Jeff Sherman's Fit Body Boot Camp are no strangers to sweating. Taught by personal trainer Sherman and his staff, workouts include intense boot camp-style exercises that rotate with every class. One class, you might be pulling ropes in a kind of tug of war; in the next, pushing sleds across the gym floor. "Some classes, ... I'm wiped out," said Susan O'Neil, an aesthetician at About Faces who regularly attends. How they got started: Sherman, who got his personal training license at 18 years old, is a 10-year military veteran.

Residents of the western Anne Arundel County community of Seven Oaks didn't defeat plans to move a correctional boot camp to Fort George G. Meade all by themselves. They had help from those who wanted to put the camp there: Gov. William Donald Schaefer and the Army.The governor and Army officials went about this whole project all wrong. Had they been paying attention a year and a half ago, when County Executive Robert R. Neall quietly tried to secure state funding for a county detention center in Glen Burnie, they would have realized that citizens do not take it well when corrections facilities are sneaked into their communities behind their backs.

Round two of boot camp! The mission, should they choose to accept it, was to have a sing-off with a contestant that has already been chosen for them. This is when the claws come out. While some basked in the Miami heat, all too many were eaten alive in the 'X Factor' jungle. Jennel Garcia was up to face Tara Simon. They chose to sing "Landslide. " Tara strongly believed that it was a good song choice for the both of them saying, "I'm not the girl that has to try hard every time and kill them.

Sometimes I forget the "X Factor" is a reality show. The first minute was just erratic scenes of contestants crying and arguing in beautiful scenery like the beach. If I didn't know any better I would think that I had accidentally recorded my grandma's daytime soap opera. That said, I think they should rename the show "As The Factor Turns"; because in this episode we got more than our share of drama. We also got another killer performance by Maryland's David Correy. All the contestants made their way to Miami ready to live out their dream.

Arizona Cardinals long snapper Mike Leach and his wife, Julie, are developing a product to help parents toilet train their toddlers.

By investing $12,000 to explore the possibility of sending some of their jail inmates to boot camp, officials in Carroll, Baltimore and Harford counties are showing creativity in dealing with rising jail costs. Transferring inmates out of the jails may help ease overcrowding and might also be an effective rehabilitation tool.Under the plan coordinated by Baltimore County's corrections administrator, the three counties would apply for a $50,000 Justice Department grant. If the grant is approved, each jurisdiction would contribute $4,000 toward a $62,000 consultant study on opening a tri-county boot camp.

He works out daily and keeps himself ready in case a team calls and the situation is right. But right now, the 36-year-old is far too busy with other endeavors to be consumed with whether his 10-year NFL career is over.   “There's not anything that I have to do right now so If the football angle has exhausted itself because there's no more options in football, then that will come to a close on its own and then there will be a point where I have to announce my retirement.
