Before joining Mid American, my only workouts were ballroom dance lessons.  As a larger female, I don’t often have an opportunity to feel graceful. But when I dance, I do feel graceful and that’s why I started taking lessons.

I sought out an exercise regimen because I needed more endurance for dancing and I needed to strengthen muscles that I wouldn’t ordinarily use.  When I found Mid American, I began private Personal Training with Terry  and Pilates Reformer Training with Rachel – and it’s paid off!  My dance instructor could tell a difference in my dancing within a few weeks. And, I entered my first ballroom competition, The Motown Showdown, and took first place!

Working out with both Terry and Rachel has been a huge help—it’s definitely a team effort.  Once my dance instructor shows me a new move or step,  I’ll show Rachel and Terry so they know what to focus on.  I’m stronger, have more endurance, and greater flexibility thanks to them.

I’ve gotten such great results that my husband began doing Pilates Reformer and regained shoulder mobility he’d lost over 20 years ago!  Needless to say, he’s been thrilled with his results, too.
