There are so many of you ladies absolutely killing it at SP that we want to take Thursdays to highlight some of the SUPERSTARS. First up...Jenn Santo!
We asked Jenn to tell us a little bit about herself...
I have never been one to exercise. I would always sign up for gyms and literally donated money to them every month because I didn’t go. In June of 2013 I was the heaviest I have ever been. I couldn’t stand to look in the mirror. But I also didn’t do anything about it. Then a friend of mine told me about Studio Poise so I decided to purchase the 3 class pass. The first class I took was Barreworke and to be completely honest, I was not expecting to love it as much as I did. I thought this was your typical women’s gym, but I was wrong.
As soon as my 3 class pass ended, I instantly signed up for an unlimited membership. I couldn’t believe after 3 classes I was hooked. I get bored quite easily so I was excited that SP has such a wide variety of classes, times & instructresses.
After going for a few months, I started to get in a rut. I was working out a lot but still eating crappy. Danielle offers a program called 6 Weeks to Chic and I decided to sign up. It started in early November and ended in the middle of December (which probably is the hardest time of year to eat healthy). I followed the 6W2C plan pretty strictly (except the whole drinking thing. I drank wine. Oops) and at the end of the 6 weeks, I lost over 15 inches! I couldn’t believe how my body transformed in such little time! I felt AMAZING and I still do try to follow the plan to this day.
Over the past year, I have planned my life around SP. No really, I have. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said ‘oh wait I can’t, I have to go to Studio Poise”. (It also helps that your best friend is an instructress. Constant motivation to go. Thanks Em)
Studio Poise is not like any other place I’ve been to. The energy here is amazing. Every single client that walks in and out of SP always has a smile on their face. So many friendships are formed and I truly believe that we all inspire each other to live a healthier lifestyle.
If you told me a year ago I would be working out 5-6 days a week, sometimes twice a day, I would have laughed in your face. If you told me a year ago I would be waking up at 5:30am to work out, I would have laughed even harder. My whole life has absolutely been changed by SP.
I have gained so much confidence in myself and I actually don’t mind looking in the mirror anymore. I want to thank all the instructresses and every single woman I come in contact with at SP. If it wasn’t for all of you, I truly don’t know where I would be.
Jenn - We don’t know where we would be without you and all the other ladies who come to sweat, sparkle and smile with us. Keep up the good work - It’s truly inspiring!
