Last May, I was having breakfast with some friends, when the topic of exercise came up. I mentioned I’d seen the ad for Goddess Fitness and one of my friends said, “That place, I don’t know what they do in there, but they close the drapes and they come out sweating.”
Still intrigued, I stopped at Goddess Fitness to find out more. Melissa, the belly dance teacher, was working in reception and suggested I try my first class. I was a little apprehensive being that I’m a 40ish, overweight mother of two who was not exactly proud of my shape. I shared my fears with Melissa and she assured me I’d be fine. So I signed up for my first Introductory Goddess Diva Class.
That first class was a workout but so much fun. It was an hour-and-a-half but the time flew by. The lights are low, the music is up and everyone is so supportive and encouraging. I signed up for the Unlimited Plan that day.
All my life I have struggled with my weight. I have always exercised in some way; swimming, aerobics, gyms and more but I didn’t enjoy any of it. I wanted to, but I always looked upon it as a chore. I wanted to be one of those people who exercised because they wanted to, not because they had to. But now with Goddess Fitness I make the time to exercise because I want to. I get that exercise high I was always looking for. I mix it up and take different classes each day; I love the variety of all the different classes. I have even dragged my husband to Couples Yoga (he thought I was trying to kill him). My body is changing, inches are disappearing, people are noticing and I feel better spiritually. So now I can say, for the first time in my life, I love to exercise.
Thank you Goddess Fitness and thank you Emma.
