What would you do if an intruder entered your bedroom while you were asleep? Manhattanite and fitness fanatic Jennifer LaPierre survived that same situation while staying in the garden-level bedroom at a friend's apartment. "I was petrified," Jennifer said. "I believe it was pure adrenaline that gave me that flight-or-flight [mentality]. When you're trapped in a room with no escape, I think it's just a natural instinct to fight."
If you find yourself in a similar experience, Jennifer says it's important to scream when you see an intruder and to be sure to take care of your body and stay in shape to be able to protect yourself. Gail talks with Jennifer about how she fought off her intruder and the effect it has had on her life.
