Just wanted to take the time to email you about my classes. I have been going to your classes now for about 3 weeks and I really enjoy them. I have to say that Lindsey's classes on Tuesday and Thursday (20/20/20) nights are great. Lindsey has so much energy, and I actually find my self laughing sometimes in class, she cracks me up. Every class is different and keeps me on my toes. Like her music choices too. She is a great instructor and is always giving us different options and encouraging us to watch our form. I also like Shawn's classes a lot too. And your class on Monday wakes me up and makes me hurt the next day (thanks). Just wanted to send a kudos to you guys.  Thanks and keep up the great classes!!

The step class was great! I don't think I've done step in about 15 years! I think it's awesome that you can do a make-up class if you can't make it to one from the session you signed up for. You offer such a wide range of classes. You've got a great thing going! Can't wait to check out the new schedule!

Hi Teamfit
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed having Dorothy as the instructor in the recent "weights" class I took through St. Clair Shores Adult Ed. We were at Violet School on Thursdays. Dorothy was real good about making sure we always were performing the exercise to our fullest advantage. Each week she had different exercises for the different muscle groups and we soon found ourselves working at a higher level. Thanks.

Hi Jill,

Your newsletter was great. It really touched home for me. I have not personally met you, but I always read your newsletters. I called you last January in hopes to start an exercise program, but it seemed like the year just didn't start off right. I vowed all year, I needed to get back to working out and here it is another year. The newsletter you wrote made me realize a few things and this year I think I will take on IMPACT.
The other reason for this e-mail is to let you know that I will be praying for your mother. Your mother will be in our prayers. We pray that God will bring her strength, peace and courage as she goes through this time in her life.
Hope to see you this year, so I can get back into shape.
Thanks for the article. Very touching, but most of all, thanks for touching me.

            1 t vanilla extract


          Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
          Spray muffin pans with nonstick spray or line with paper liners. In a small bowl, combine the oats and buttermilk, and let stand at room temperature for five minutes. In a medium bowl, combine the flour baking powder and baking soda. In a large bowl, use a mixer to beat the egg, applesauce, and brown sugar for 3 minutes at medium speed. Add the vanilla and combine. Blend in the oat-buttermilk mixture. Stir in the flour mixture just to combine. Try not to overwork the mixture. Fold in berries.
