Introducing: Socialize, Energize, Exercise

My heart is so full as I write this! Well for one, I am writing this post just moments after leading a flash mob marriage proposal for my client Dan ….and his special lady said YES!! You can view the proposal HERE on my YouTube channel. It was truly wonderful!

Furthermore, last night was just as incredible. Friday, November 28th, 2014 was the birth of Socialize, Energize, Exercise. I decided to create this event as means of getting woman in my community physically active while allowing them an opportunity to get to know one another at the same time.

The evening consisted of connection activities, a Carnival Spice workout, and lots of giveaways. The energy in the room was amazing and the women in the room were so diverse! There were women of different ages, ethnicities, and career backgrounds all of which came from different areas in the GTA.

The Carnival Spice workout features a variety of music and movement inspired by Caribbean culture. The sounds of Tarrus Riley, Machel Montano, and Elvis Crespo rang through the room.
The vibes were endless! I was inclined to break out the feather boa for some dancehall limbo!

Congratulations to our "bogle dance" champion Bridgette

I am so happy to share some of the “love notes” that each woman wrote during the session – it helps give you (the reader) a sense of the dynamic women that were in the space.

For Dany: "Deep breath, when you feel like you can't go on...take a deep breath"

For Shynelle: "Live life not ONLY to exist!"

For Dawnette: "...The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams"

Special shout out to my nephew (23months) and niece (8yo) that helped lead the workout – Ha! They are definitely the future so I was so proud to see them participating and cheering on the ladies.

Special thank you to our event sponsors:
