From the squad

I end up constantly journaling your class quotes. They help my meditations. Thanks for being you!


This morning, I got my butt out of bed early and did one of your C&S classes on demand. It was the BEST way to start my day! Thankful for your energy!


I love that you bring a positive quote to class. It becomes my mantra during class and I try to carry it through my day. Thanks for all you do and for making a difference.


You motivate me like no other fitness instructor ever has. So happy to be part of the Sweaty Smile Squad!!!


You are so great at what you do. I have severe anxiety and I pop in your Mirror workouts and Boom! instant relief and it's not just the workout, it's the things you say. So thank you for that. You're my fave.
