When I walked into Vibe Nutrition in Murfreeboro, I was greeted by a group of friendly, enthusiastic and sweet girls who smiled and said “Hello!”
I couldn’t believe the positive energy and kindness they showed me. I grew up in PA, which I consider to be a not-so-helpful circle of people. So when I moved to Tennessee, I was surprised to meet others who actually went out of their way to lend a hand. I’ve heard way too many horror stories about people walking past others in need of help.
But, as for this class, just being with others who also want to get in shape made me feel as if I belonged.
Thereafter, I met Joy Stafford Countryman– who introduced herself as the health coach and instructor of the class. This gal who cheery and excited to meet me, which I’ve become almost accustomed to since moving to TN two months ago.
Her 30-minute class consisted of planks, burpees, core exercises, squats, etc. I would say that if you want to get in shape, take this class!
“The best part of teaching any of the classes for me is the community that is built through the classes. We get to encourage each other, sweat together, struggle together… And at the end, I get to see those smiles and be so proud of each person for taking time to do something good for their bodies,” says Joy. “Our chances for success in anything in life, especially the healthy active life, increase exponentially when you have a great support system and others to encourage you. That’s what I hope Vibe is…a place of encouragement, inspiration, and education.”
Typically, I workout 3-4 times per week, so I’d like to say I’m in shape, but after this class, maybe I’m not as much as I’d like to think.
The thing about this class is: you have other people around cheering you on, so giving up may not be happen. In a gym, you blend in with the rest of the crowd. Therefore, no one is around telling you to continue and that’s why people may stop working out or give up. Some people may need a little push in the right direction and I’d say taking a class at Vibe Nutrition would be the ticket!.
After your workout, you’re treated to a Herbalife Shake! Choose from flavors such as Orange Cream, Vanilla, Cookies N Cream, Birthday Cake, French Vanilla, Dutch Chocolate, Piña Colada, Cafe Latte, Mint Chocolate, etc. I opted for “Birthday Cake,” which tasted like heaven. It’s a consistency of a milkshake with a hint of well, birthday cake. Now, you won’t need to indulge in a slice of cake because Herbalife Shakes are there for you instead! You don’t feel ashamed either because they are packed with 24 grams of protein.
If you’re sold and ready to take the journey of losing weight, let me tell you a little secret:The classes are free! You heard me, these classes are FREE! Who could pass up free classes and a shake on the side? Like, can it get any better than that?
I found this class through Karen Elaine, who messaged me on Facebook one day. She wrote, “Hey girl! I saw you were new to Murfreesboro. Welcome! Just wanted to give you our schedule here at Vibe for all of our Free Fitness Classes. It’s a great way to meet fun and active people here in the Boro. Hope you have a wonderful evening!”
After that, I kept contemplating whether I wanted to go or not. But, finally, after several weeks of chatting with Karen one and off, I decided to make the move and attend one of the classes and boy was I glad I did!
So, if you’re looking to meet new people, get in shape and consume free shakes and teas, I’d encourage you to try this class! And. if that doesn’t get you excited, I’m not sure what else I can say to convince you!
