Hi LFC Family,
I hope you are all well and staying active during this stressful time. Because of our small membership and open space, we have been able to follow safety guidelines and stay open and continue classes during the last few chaotic weeks. I appreciate all the amazing efforts to maintain appropriate social distance, clean and disinfect equipment, and continue to take care of yourselves. We have such a special group of ladies!
Unfortunately, as the virus has spread throughout our state, we have to make more adjustments and the Governor has ordered all indoor fitness and health centers to close by 5pm Wednesday. At this point, I will ask that you do NOT come to the fitness center after Wednesday, March 25th, so we can do our part to contain this virus. If you are able to continue your membership, please hold on to your keys and be ready for us to re-open as soon as we are cleared.
I will be posting home workouts on social media and sending email links to an interactive platform for classes and small group personal training, as well as hosting outdoor workouts. I would love to continue all these group workouts at no additional charge for our members. Non-members will be required to pay per class for outdoor or online interactive classes. If you can utilize these services and are able to continue your membership, please do, so we will be able to re-open as soon as possible. I am also available for in-home personal training via FaceTime, Messenger, and Zoom. Regular session rates apply.Without your support, the fitness center may not be able to recover and re-open after this downtime.
I know all of you are going through major personal, social, and economic lifestyle challenges . As devastating as some of these are, please try to stay positive and focused on staying healthy. Use this time to spend more time with loved ones, complete home projects, read, enjoy the outdoors, exercise, rest, and replenish your hearts and bodies. We want to be ready because when we get through this, and we will, it’s gonna be ON!
These days remind me of when I was “self-quarantined” with my triplet preemies. We had very little money, I went weeks without leaving the house, there was no socializing (or social media), and I prayed every day that these precious little babies would stay healthy. Those first few years were long, tougher than I even knew at the time, and still some of the most precious memories that I have. 20 years later, those long days are a blur and I have the most amazing strong and beautiful college girls, with their equally wonderful little brothers, home and riding this out with us. Although our experience in no way compares to a global pandemic, I do believe that soon we will look back at this time and despite the hardships and fears, we will have newfound strength and joy.
I will continue to exercise daily, and I hope you will too!
Feel free to call, email, text any time.
See you at the gym…one day SOON!

Hi LFC Ladies!
I cannot believe we are rounding out summer. Luckily, we have an awesome September planned at the gym!
Pop Pilates has gotten off to a great start and will continue on a few Mondays and a Thursday evening next month. Jaimee will help us kick off the Labor Day holiday on Monday, September, 4th. We will NOT have child watch for the Labor Day holiday.
New to the schedule in September, will be a Wednesday evening DanceFit with Wendy at 5:30pm! Wendy describes this class as a high/low interval training cardio class with a few dance moves thrown in to bring the fun with a 100% sweat guarantee! This thirty minute class will be appropriate for all fitness and ability levels
Although we are already looking forward to the fall, the summer heat and humidity will linger a while longer. Please stay hydrated and be safe while exercising both indoors and outdoors.
Don't forget to share our website with your friends!
See you at the gym
