A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam.
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world.
But then it flies on again, and though we wish
it could have stayed, we feel so lucky just to have seen it....
Ronnie Esser 10-14-1937 to 6-8-2014
I feel so honored to have known Ronnie. We talked, we laughed, we worked out!! We had a love hate relationship..... she loved me but HATED exercise and working out.... but she did it for me.... she did it for her niece Linda.... and at some level, she did it for herself. She is greatly missed by many.
A Relay For Life event is not only a way to join your community to fight back against cancer, but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and cancer awareness to help those facing the disease.
Why We Participate:
Our team members participate because we’ve all been affected by cancer in some way, and because a Relay For Life event gives us the power to fight back. This is our opportunity to honor friends, family and all cancer survivors....to remember people we have lost, and help raise funds for the American Cancer Society.
This year we will Relay in memory and honor of 22 year old Ashley Tindal who recently lost her 3 year battle with melanoma, and all of our friends and family members that she joined. We also Relay in honor of ALL cancer survivors!
Why I Support the American Cancer Society:
Every day, the American Cancer Society helps people take steps to reduce their risk of cancer or find it early, when it is easiest to treat. They provide free information and services to cancer patients throughout their journey. The organization is investing in crucial research to prevent, treat, and ultimately, cure all cancers.
I have signed up to walk and fundraise in my local Relay For Life event. I hope you will consider joining my team or making a donation in support of my efforts.
Together, we can finish the fight!
Thank you, thank you, thank you..... I am so grateful!!
Another year has flown by..... WOW, we are now in the (not so new) studio for over 3 years!! Every day I am inspired by my clients to keep on keepin on.... you keep showing up and I could not be more proud and pleased with everyone's commitment and progress.

Hi Friends and Family,
We are celebrating two years of FUN in our Fitness Fun Studio this month. I am so blessed and thankful for the opportunity to help so many people. I love you guys!!!
One of my clients wrote the following poem and presented it to me at our recent open house.... I think it shows what we are all about here.... enjoy:
Nan, we wanted to thank you this holiday;
So together we found a special way.
You have enriched our lives at your studio;
Working out, exercising, and in the know.
Accomplishments, achievements and other ways;
We wanted to wish you special holidays.
We proudly work out with Fitness Fun by Nan;
Because each of us is a really big fan.
You are someone great who knows how to inspire;
You are the one that we all really admire.
To our special, favorite coach and teacher;
Sometimes like a mother, sometimes a preacher.
Fitness Fun by Nan classes have changed our life;ooo
As a result, we lost weight, inches and strife.
We also gained confidence, strength and pride;
It has made us feel more extra alive.
So to Nan’s studio we faithfully go;
Knowing our energy and polish will show.
You can come to exercise during the week;
It isn’t for the timid or for the meek.
A session can last lots longer than you think;
Don’t forget your water and have a big drink.
Whether, early or late you know for sure;
That Molly, our mascot, guards the door.
Although cookies and bones can lead her astray;
She is posted at the door so you will stay.
Our food diary will reveal every sin;
But, Nan patiently says lets begin again.
Whenever you step on her old weigh-in scale;
It gives you a choice- you better not fail.
You can wear Nan’s special logo t-shirt;
While you exercise and stay ever alert.
Positive personality- always upbeat;
She encourages us all- there is no defeat.
She loves what she does and shares her expertise;
Great sense of humor she makes us laugh with ease.
Taking it outdoors now has a new meaning;
Cool downs , warm ups are the end and beginning.
Taking it up a notch is as you please;
Doing the impossible with so much ease.
Getting strong like a bull is part of the plan;
One of the reasons we work out with Nan.
Mats, balls, straps and bands- they add to the mix;
Boxing gloves and cuffs put us in a fix.
Tools of torture some would probably say;
But to Nan they are just another way.
Music gives you a fun way to exercise;
Keeping time and beat makes you reach your prize
It covers the groans when things get really tough;
Many a time we say we have had enough.
The circuit run is always a treat;
We make use of our busy hands and feet.
Planks and movements that defy gravity;
It’s amusing for a spectator to see.
Some might think that Nan really runs a sweatshop;
Because sometimes we feel like we just might drop.
The studio transforms when people say “ I do;”
Hidden equipment and tables leave no clue.
Looking forward to Fitness Fun by Nan next year;
We hope you like your gifts and use them with cheer.
Happy Holidays December 14, 2012 from the studio crew.
