Tell me what you just did and where you are at.
I am at the Healthy Community event at Carepoint East for Ohio State Wexner Medical Center. I was just jamming with the Divine Impact Fitness crew. I am a member of their workout crew. I work out with them 3 to 5 times a week.
Have you seen any results?
I have seen lots of results. I am healthy. My numbers are great. It is just the best way to get fit.
What did you think about the fair?
The fair is awesome. I work at The Ohio State University. I am supportive of all the things we do for our community, in addition to our faculty and staff. The event is well attended and we had great weather for the event.
Good to see you and any other Mifflin alum around town.
Sidebar: I love that she said she supports events in our community. We are all busy! Sometimes we just have to MAKE time to support events. And I agree it is good to see a Mifflin graduate from the 1980s. “Ain’t no pride like Puncher pride”. (Puncher is our high school mascot).
Tell me about what you do.
We are Divine Impact Fitness. Currently, we are using the space inside of Next Level Fitness which is located at 7020 Cross Point Rd., Gahanna, OH. We do high impact cardio dance fitness, and strength conditioning classes to help tone and tighten and lift those things that might be loose. We also do moods and mindfulness, which is our high impact cardio classes followed by 15 minutes of mindfulness which is a body scan. It is something like meditation which is led by Shekyra Decree who is a licensed clinical therapist.
You ended your session with something. Tell me about it.
We say different things every class. We encourage people to look at their neighbor and congratulate them and say, “we made it.” Not you made it or I made it but, “we made it through this together.” Then we say different things to encourage one another. We ladies have a tendency to be beat down every day by the world. We wear so many hats. We are mothers, wives, nurses inside of our homes, we are cooks, housekeepers, we hold a 40 hour a week job, some of us are business owners. We do a lot of things. We look at each other and say, “you are beautiful, you are loved, you are strong, you are powerful, you are resilient, you are enough just as you are right now.”
