Jamie S.

Why I love teaching: I have always had  passion for teaching and helping others as I taught 1st grade for 5 years. I had always loved fitness and decided to bring the two things I love together. I chose BA because of the community and the passion every single member has. I leave the studio feeling inspired by all of the strength and courage each person brings onto the mat.

The music that makes me feel “alive”: I am a sucker for anything country or the latest hits on the radio. I love a good catchy song that keeps me engaged and motivated in what I am doing.

How fitness changed my life: I have always been interested in fitness and staying healthy. As I got older and my injuries from when I was younger set in, the need for fitness was greater. I always felt lost on what to do, unmotivated and in a lot of pain. After a few classes at BA I was hooked. I have never felt such little daily pain in my life, I always feel ready to crush my day and the class structure is just what I need. Fitness has allowed me to find who I want to be and push me to be the best version of myself.

Why I love Body Alive: I have found my 2nd family because of Body Alive. Every member and instructor is always so welcoming. Everyone wants what is best for you and wants to hear your story. In class the energy is unreal, everyone is pushing together, encouraging each other and becoming who they want to be as a whole. I have never felt so comfortable in a fitness class until I came to Body Alive.
