I have a place, there is nothing special about the way it looks, four walls, a ceiling and a floor. What makes my place special is what goes on inside those walls. Women’s lives are changed! They meet new friends, feel better about themselves, and mold the outside to match what’s on the inside.
I had an idea to help some very special people, people with the desire for a healthier lifestyle. The idea was my version of the “Biggest Loser.” My version because no one gets kicked out. One hundred and seventy four women wrote and stated their case as to why they should be among the chosen six. Thirty four were asked to come for a meet and greet … the plan was to pick the six to participate. After meeting them all, the six became seven, seven more were given a free 3 month membership, and the remaining 160 women are being given the option to join the gym at half price. All the women are special and have a different story. After reading all the submissions I knew I couldn’t walk away from any of them.
My place is Flab to Fab, nothing special about the building or what it looks like, all the magic is on the inside. It’s a judgment free zone. Women from 17 to 70 are there to better themselves physically, the magical part happens when they look in the mirror and like what they see. With hard work and determination you can mold the body, the mind and the heart on the other hand it takes time and encouragement. To all those women who submitted entries I say: “That was the first step, now take the second and use the half price membership.” Make a new friend, feel better about yourself, get healthier, and be there for yourself and the ones you love.
