It is truly hard for me to put into words how much Reb3l means to me and how much it has changed my life. I have always been someone who works out, but it wasn’t until Reb3l that I actually enjoyed it! I would bounce from class to class trying kickboxing, zumba, barre, yoga, or, like many people, “worked out” on an elliptical when I wasn’t walking around the gym changing from one machine to another. I say it like that because, though I was using the machines, I’m not sure I was burning any calories. I would finish a workout hardly sweating, and honestly, I was bored out of my mind. I would make every excuse to skip the gym, and when I did go, I had to force myself.
Then one day, I was walking by a classroom after leaving yet another boring yoga class, and heard what I thought was a party. I followed the music and looked into the classroom window. The lights were off, a disco ball was turning, lights were flashing and the class was packed with girls dancing. I got super excited and decided I would give it a try the following week. Of course, being new, I was one of the girls who started in the back, nervous about the moves and unsure about what to expect. Soon, the music started reving up and I was immediately excited to work out. What? Excited to work out?! Who says that, right?! It was so much fun!! Time flew by and the next thing I knew I had worked out hard for an hour though it felt like fifteen minutes. I left sweating more than I ever had, with a huge smile on my face. That was the beginning of loving my workouts and I have never turned back.
Flash forward three years. I now crave going to Reb3l classes. Honestly, it is my therapy! I can be having the worst day, then go to a class or do one at home online and feel instantly better! The bonus? I have gotten tons stronger! I can truly say that at 41 I am the happiest and healthiest I have ever been. It actually brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it.
I can’t thank Reb3l enough. I am so grateful for Tricia, Ashleigh and Angela for what they have created. There is nothing out there like it. Do yourself a favor and try it! I can promise you’ll be glad you did!
