When I started HSM almost a year ago, I had no idea what to expect. I had never done an exercise class of any kind, and I was very out of shape after having two babies fairly close together. I felt physically exhausted most of the time, and I dreaded the thought of putting on a bathing suit. After a good friend repeatedly told me HSM would change my life, I nervously signed up for a class. In the first class I realized what “core strength” was, and that I had very little of it. Lee Kennelly taught my first class, and I was immediately impressed by her professionalism, knowledge, and kindness. Traits I would later find in all HSM teachers.
In two short months, I was back in all my pre-baby clothes and the dreaded bathing suit was no longer scary. As the summer continued, I realized how strong and energized I was becoming. My sweet husband began commenting on my abs (which I thought would never come back!) and he was amazed at how much I enjoyed each class.
As the mother of two young boys, HSM is one of the few things in my life that is just for me. I have one hour, several times a week where I focus solely on myself. This time not only allows me to feel good in my jeans, but it makes me a better mother, a better wife, and a happier, healthier person.
At HSM, each class is different. I am constantly challenged and never bored. The hour flies by, and I look forward to seeing all my HSM friends before and after class. It is a wonderful community of women. Liz and Clary have developed an exercise method that will change your body and improve your life in so many unexpected ways. They have staffed their program with strong, wonderful women, and I wish I had found their method years ago.
