When I started out in fitness it was at this studio I used to drive by as a teenager. Driving past I’d see people in this big bright room doing aerobics (yup, aerobics!) and all kinds of crazy stuff. I always wondered what the classes were like. When I got out of college I was overweight and in a rut so I decided to come check the place out. It was taking this woman Jeanine’s BODYSTEP class that really changed my life. I loved moving to music with a group of people. There’s nothing else like the feeling you get taking a group fitness class. The members around you are doing the same thing you are and pushing you so much harder than you ever would go on your own. And then the whole time there’s an instructor at the front of the room that cares about you and wants you to succeed (and get a killer workout!). I was hooked and was asked to become an instructor. Years later in this same location I’ve started The Sweatshop and I couldn’t be happier to be back home.
So if you’re driving by and wondering what the place is like – come find out! We don’t bite… well most of us don’t.
