Sharing Thanks

Do you ever get the feeling you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be? Today I’m feeling so thankful for all of the opportunities in front of me. For those who don’t know, I’m in the midst of training to become a barre3 instructor. I am obsessed with this workout and everything it stands for: honoring your body, having fun and challenging yourself. I started taking classes in October as a way to tone-up and get healthier. It ended up being a lot more than that. I’m beyond ecstatic I get to share my love for this workout with all of you!

Another reason I can’t stop smiling? This afternoon, Courtney Gerlach, the owner of barre3 Columbus, held a  donation class for the CYP CLUB’s annual charity event, A Date 2 Remember. We had a full class and it really warmed my heart to see members of the young professional community come together to raise money and try something new. All of the money from this class (and from the event) goes to United Way of Central Ohio and City Year Columbus. They’re both awesome charities and I truly believe they’re making huge strides in changing the Columbus community for the better.

My husband (pictured below), brother-in-law, and a few personal friends came to this afternoon’s barre3 class as well. They’re not as familiar with A Date 2 Remember, so it meant A TON to have their support, too. Unconditional love at it’s finest!


I wanted to share my happiness with all of you and encourage you to find a way to do what you love. What my favorite late-night comic said is true:

If you work really hard, and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.”

SIDENOTE: For those interested in trying barre3, I’ll be teaching a few free community classes before officially being added to the schedule. I’d be happy to let you know when those will be!
