JC: Over the winter we got together five times a week, for an hour each time. It's a lot of sports-based movements done in a pool—everything from boxing to punting a football—and some stuff that comes from military obstacle courses, like running tires.

SI: And he's barking at you the whole time?

JC: There's a lot of that. When he gets me doing those knee lifts, like I'm running tires, he's yelling, "Hup! Hup! Hup! Hup!"

SI: This inspires you?

JC: It sure does. I have things moving that I haven't had moving in a long time.

SI: Does he ever get in the water with you?

JC: Yep. Sometimes he faces me, and we do the same routine.

SI: How cute—synchronized swimming. Maybe you can get some jazzy music, a little mascara and try out for the 2004 Games.

JC: Oh, I don't think we'll ever be good enough for the Olympics.
