Once upon a time,
I was working at a local gym, teaching group fitness. My best friend (aka gym wife) and I taught a dance fitness class, and used our own choreography, but also a lot we found on the internet. (Shout out to the internet! You have all the things!) In this search, we discovered this YouTube channel:
We loved the choreography, but were really taken by the music. It was familiar and fun, but also we immediately noticed the values of the songs. Our gym is in a church, so the lyrics and meanings were especially significant to us because of that, but also to us personally. And then we noticed...
REFIT® was coming to Kansas City that fall to do a training!!!
We got approval and encouragement from our boss to sign up. We were so excited!
It was now October, and I had signed up for the training, but my gym wife was no longer working at the gym, so I was going alone. I was nervous and as a true Missourian, completely skeptical. I had another dear friend come with me to the Experience Class the night before, and she sent me a sweet, encouraging text the morning of the training. And while I knew-ish a few of the people there, I mostly felt alone, and eye-rolly. I can't help it. I am an eye-roller, and I question everything.
I was sure these founders of this company were going to be annoying Fitness Girls, and that their message was going to be super cheesy.
But what I found...
was that their intention behind this fitness revolution was and will always be community. And if you know me, you know I am passionate about community. REFIT® set an intention to revolutionize the fitness industry by offering a class, an experience that transcends the idea that fitness is about perfection, instead it is about participation; it isn't just for the fit, it is for the willing.
"The heart is a muscle and a soul. REFIT® builds both."
So I was wrong.
My training wasn't lame or scary. It was uplifting and encouraging. The same spirit you would find in any REFIT® class, all around the country, all around the world. Radical welcome and a great workout that works for you. Fitness that fits.
Have you tried REFIT®? Tell me about it.
