Breshannon Leslie Deveraux, 34, was released on a $12,500 personal recognizance bond set Tuesday by Berkeley County Magistrate Sandra L. Miller, according to court records.

It's ironic how people want to change without having to change. So many times I sit with a prospective client and hear about how unhappy they are about the way they look and feel, how much energy they don't have, and how weak they've become. I lay out exactly what it's going to take to get into their best shape, and immediately I get the list of "I can'ts. " Each "I can't" is usually followed by a "because" and ends with a rationalization of an unwillingness to get out their comfort zone.
