Wanting to reinvent herself after a less-than-stellar high school experience, Whitney decides fitness camp is the perfect plan. What she doesn't expect is to meet Axel, her dangerously attractive trainer.

                                                                      ***** 

It's the summer before college and for Whitney Carmichael, who often finds herself in the shadows of her older sister, these next few months seem like her one chance to reinvent herself. With the trauma of gym class still fresh in her mind, the self-proclaimed "athletically challenged" Whitney chooses to face her fears head on by enrolling in a five-week fitness boot camp. While expected, the deadly workouts are even worse in reality, but at least her alluring trainer, Axel, is determined to harness all of her hidden potential. It doesn't take long for Whitney to begin shedding some of her old thoughts and personality, until high school comes back to haunt her in the form of a web of toxic friendships and petty revenge. As she comes face to face with unexpected nemeses and as her attraction to Axel deepens, Whitney realizes this camp is the catalyst for many discoveries in her life - the most surprising of all being love.
