“It is for a selfish reason. More than anything else, it makes me feel better. Believe me when I tell you this, if it didn’t make me fell better I would not be here. It always has, and it always will.”
“I run mostly for my health, and to have a good life by having a good morning’s exercise."
“I love coming here because I always feel better when I leave.”
"When my husband got me that bike after my mother died, I had a choice. I could continue to curl up in a fetal position and refuse to live my life. Or I could stand up, put one foot in front of the other, and fight back. That bike helped me get to the healthier, happier place I'm at today.
“Daily fitness relieves stress, makes us stronger and we feel better about ourselves.This makes for a happy attitude at work, and happy employees are always more productive and engaged in their roles.”
"I love barre for so many good reasons: It is my happy place. It is a part of my day where I get to have fun and discover what my body is capable of doing. All of the instructors are wonderful, talented people, who do a great job and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into the classes."
“Many days I sit behind my piano trying to compose for a lot of different instruments at once. It’s quite difficult because music is time-based, so you can’t really sit down and look at it—it disappears. Going for a run makes me sharper, it helps me to stay focused, to concentrate, and also you create endorphins, which makes you feel better.”
"Working out for your health is not always about setting a personal record in the gym or a perfect training program. Something I often say to my training clients is that we as adults don’t play enough. I learned that doing a fun dance class or crazy boot camp with my friends may not have gotten me as sweaty as a perfectly structured kettlebell workout by my trainer self’s standards, but it gave me benefits in so many other ways. It got me moving, laughing, and having fun—and that is just as crucial to our health as a weight training session. Goofing off is not a bad thing!"
