Fitness Magazine

It all started back in April 1st, 2014. I was just a few classes into being released from my second shoulder surgery.

I was at Sadie's first class teaching in the new Williams studio and was obviously requiring some additional help and modifications, for which Sadie was very aware. She also mentioned my weight loss/surgery a time or two! There happened to be an editor from Fitness Magazine in the class who was there to visit with barre3 about being in their magazine. I left class, unknowing what was about to unfold.

barre3 met with Fitness, and they asked about me. And the rest, as they say, is history.

I received an email from Kait connecting me with Karla from NYC. From there, I filled out the "I DID IT" section application, which told my story. 2 months went by and I hadn't heard anything. Then, one day, I got an email saying that they wanted to feature me in the magazine!! Me. It was surreal. We had just a week to schedule the photo shoot because I was about to go on vacation!

Wouldn't you know it...but it rained the day of my photo shoot but I think that made the light even better! Here are a few of my favorite pictures by the wonderful photographer Robbie McClaran.

I still can't believe I was in an international magazine. It's mind boggling really. I figure I bought about 50 copies, giving many out to studios, family, and my village of doctors!

The winning picture!
