All you need to know...and more.

What is going on around here? 1/1-1/10/16

Happy Holidays!

And just like that...WE ARE BACK. Yay!!

Who missed me? Or should I ask...who missed the classes, seeing each other more often and working up a sweat?

I sure did.

3 weeks was a long time to be off schedule, but at the same time it seemed to fly by.

I didn't get any where near the things done that I had hoped- but it was still a great respite from the norm.

My body, mind and spirit were all given opportunity to heal, restore and enjoy. What a blessing.

I am excited to find out what all of you did over the break in terms of fitness, rest, healing and more.

Your bodies should be chomping at the bit to get into a fitness routine again as well as get back on track with nutrition.

Let's get to it.

In honor of the new year and the new motto I have chosen for 2016- it is time to...


Watch this video clip. It speaks for itself.

I'll see you on Monday!

Okay- so here is the deal. Things are gonna be a little screwy at Shine in the month of January.

Long story building contractor has not been honest and upfront about quite a few things and consequently I will not be able to get into the new studio until the last week of January.

Rather than be angry, upset or bitter (which I have been all 3)- I am choosing to look at it as an opportunity to learn, grow and move forward.

So- we will take this unfortunate situation and spin it like this...


Bring your friends and invite any other people you want to experience SHINE and have them come and workout with us for FREE the entire month.

We want to FILL the classes with fun, strong and inspiring individuals who are ready to RISE and SHINE. Please help us do just that.

Classes will still be exciting, fun and challenging. Location doesn't change that.

Unfortunately because I am going to still have to work around the dance studio schedule- we will not be able to offer the complete winter schedule as listed on the website ( until we are in the new building.

The classes that will be offered during the month of January are as follows: (Please see website and/or flyers for class defintions)

The Ugly Sweater and Christmas Light Walk/Run was a blast!

Despite a few little glitches here and there, everyone that came had a fun time exercising, looking at Christmas lights and getting to know each other better over a mug of hot chocolate. Awesome.

Thanks to all those who came out, participated in some fashion and donated to the cause.

We were able to donate a huge box of warm clothing and accessories to the Interfaith Sanctuary.

And THANKS to Great Harvest Bread Co for sponsoring this run and donating Pumpkin Bread for a treat. Very nice of them.

Start planning your outfit for next year. It's gonna be EPIC.

Over the break, Amy offered a few classes for us to try.

Even though only just a handful of us showed up each time, we managed to have far too much fun.

We folded, breathed and posed our way into complete least that's what story I'm telling. Amy might have a little different take on it.

Thanks for spending the extra time with us. Our achy bones needed it.
