On December 30, we invited dancefitters to apply to be our 2015 spokesperson. This position is awarded to individuals who are committed to a healthy, FIT and danceFIT filled year. They will get to know all our clients and take many classes! you, as readers, will get get to follow their progress, experience, ups & downs and fitness journey.
When we opened up this contest, we were blown away with how many ladies wanted to represent danceFIT as a spokesperson. We heard your personal stories, your fitness trials & tribulations and your love for the studio and why you would be the perfect candidate. we agree! If we could pick you all, we would! Thank YOU for believing in danceFIT and for sharing it with the world!
We would like to announce that we have chosen THREE amazing spokespeople for this job!
Please congratulate Rachel who will be our natick representative. We had to steal this gorgeous picture from her facebook page to introduce her! Rachel is fairly new to danceFIT but has fallen in love with the charm, difficult classes & variety. She shares in her application, "I feel so much better. I feel healthier and stronger. I'm not so tired all the time like I used to be and have so much more energy. My clothes fit better and I have a better self-image. That to me is worth more than a few numbers on a scale." Rachel shares danceFIT with her coworkers and will be joining 6FIT for the first time. She admits she loves snacking!!! "I have very little self control when it comes to chocolate, candy, and baked goods. And there is candy everywhere at work." We all know the feeling Rachel & can't wait to follow your journey!
Anyone who has taken a virtual class knows megs (her nickname). We would like to congratulate Megs on the virtual spokesperson position. Megs is addicted to danceFIT classes and has been joining us from virginia for the past two and a half years. She has really been a spokesperson since she started. She is a stay at home mom to four kids ages 8, 6, 5 and 1. "Before starting DanceFit I thought I needed to only do cardio to stay fit. Now I realize a combination of toning, cardio and stretching is really what has me not only looking better, but most importantly feeling better. My son, Drew, told me the other morning during Ashley's class "Mommy, you could almost beat up Ironman". Megs heard about danceFIT from our 2012 spokesperson Nicole Prezioso! "I was able to take a live workout class in my house by simply turning on the computer and rolling out my yoga mat. My sanity was restored, and with each 6FIT I have stuck with healthier eating habits not only for me, but my family. My husband says I look more beautiful now, than I did on our wedding day, but what is most important is that I feel like I am more beautiful today as well. Megs admits lunches also are not the best as she forgets to eat a good lunch, and ends up with a venti latte & pastry. I think with 4 kids (or without!) that could happen to anyone.
We added one more spokesperson this year. We felt like Chrissie is the perfect fit to represent BOTH the natick studio + virtual studio. She lives close enough to come to the studio, but with her two boys, full time job and family commitments, she is the perfect example of the balancing act! She takes virtual during the week and fits in a class or two over the weekend! We fell in love with chrissie from her application, "I am what woman are, not someone they could never be. I am someone they can relate too. I will never be a size two but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to be healthy. I am also realistic and funny so I will not sugar coat that this process of finding health is easy, but I will make sure everyone knows how important it is with a little humor." Chrissie is always smiling at the studio and so many of her nominations highlighted her love of dance, jazz hands, and pointed toes! chrissie is right, "Be true to yourself and show up. No one expects you to run a marathon tomorrow but have the confidence that being present is just going to lead you to the health you want."
We want to thank again to all of our applicants and beautiful walking testimonials of danceFIT! Brianna, Molly, Samantha, Kelly, Maggie, Kirsten & Courtney, thank YOU!
Please follow our blog the next 6 weeks to be a part of their 6FIT experience!
