I keep meaning to send you an email and finally found a minute to write-
I just wanted to say Thank You for all that you do. I really love attending class. It has honestly changed my life. It has given me something back which I never thought I would get back. It is coming up to 2 years of taking Jazzercise classes 2 times a week, sometimes 3, and when I look back to where I was 2 years ago, it is a pretty big difference.Not only have I lost 40 lbs- but I feel so much stronger, happier, healthier, fulfilled- really I could go on and on.
I was in a really bad car accident almost 9 years ago- at that time in my life I was extremely fit and active, running and/or biking everyday- then all of a sudden, at 21 years old, I had 2 broken legs, back and shoulder injuries and a husband with a list of injuries as well, including a broken neck.It took years of various therapies to regain some part of who I was, never feeling 75% whole. Then through the 2 kids and gaining and losing weight which followed I felt disappointed on how hard I was working and what little results I was getting. With the kids I found it so hard to take time for myself.
When I started to come to Jazzercise I loved it right away and committed to twice a week- through the summer I have been trying to come three times- I feel stronger and empowered.
Last week was the FIRST time in almost NINE years I went running- and I could do it! 9 YEARS! I have been 3 or 4 times since then, and it is way easier than class;) It means a lot to me to have an outlet like Jazzercise to come and play relieve stress and strengthen my body.
I really wanted you to know this. Many of the things you say in class touch people, and help them through whatever they are trying to work through.
You are such an inspiration.
See you at class 🙂
