Even the Executive Director from the shelter I work at was on her feet working out and loving every minute (and she's not exactly a working out kinda gal ha ha ha) but she had the best time ever. When are you coming to Winnipeg, Manitoba? We'd love to have you come to the shelter and do a class with the clients and staff."
