"I got into Zumba as one way to help me fight the symptoms of my Fibromyalgia. I really enjoyed it and had no problems keeping up with the work outs, despite my health problems. When we got introduced to "ZumbaToning", I didn't think I would be able to do it. Contrary to my expectations, I loved it. My instructors, Ani and Kathy, are fantastic in guiding me throughout the exercise routine. They make me feel comfortable and capable of doing it. Today, Zumba Toning feels more made for me then Zumba alone. It works for me and I would recommend it to everyone."

"I used to always just throw in a workout dvd at my house & try to work up a sweat. It got so boring after awhile and there was no motivation for me to keep doing it. I also didn't like the idea of a gym membership (which I also call a "meat market"). My good friend told me about Sweaty Chix Fitness and I decided to try it. The instructors are awesome & fun, and the other students are so nice. I get such a great workout and am so amped for the rest of the day. If I ever miss a day of working out, I feel like I'm dragging all day long. Sweaty Chix Fitness is not a competition or a fashion show like a typical gym can sometimes be. You feel like you're surrounded by friends & you also get a good laugh in the meantime. They aren't kidding when they say you'll get addicted!"
Sweaty Chix Zumba is the best Zumba in Utah! Not only are the instructors amazing, but I like going there to be with my friends and just have fun! It's the most fun you can have working out and sweating!!
"I LOVE Sweaty Chix! I had a gym membership but didn't want to renew it because they wanted me to sign a 2 year contract. I decided to try the classes at Sweaty Chix and felt like I was home! I have made so many friends there. I don't ever want to miss class cause I know they are there waiting for me! Even the instructors notice when I'm gone. They have become my friends too. And bonus! I feel better than I have in years!"
"I was really happy when Wendy asked us to write our experience with Sweaty Chix. I've been going to her classes for many years. I love them. I recently started going to the Zumba classes as well, and I love those too. I can't think of any of the classes over there that aren't fun and super challenging. I'm smaller than I was in high school and I have more energy than my kids. As a matter of fact, I took my kids up the canyon to go skateboarding. I ended up running the whole time and even beat them in some places. My son told me I was in better shape than any of his friend's moms. I don't think I could pay enough for that kind of complement. Thank you!"
June 22, 2010 is a day I'll find hard to forget... That was my first day walking into Sweaty Chix to my very first Zumba class.
I had contacted Wendy Hendry about Sweaty Chix a week before my first class and I was totally upfront with her, I told her that I was a little intimated about coming to a class because I was totally out of shape and hadn't done anything for quite some time, after being diagnosed with an auto-immune disease last May I'd basically just given up, she was so nice and told me not to worry and promised me that if I gave it a chance I'd love it!
She was so right! I walked in to my first Zumba class and was greeted by Cecy with open arms and a ton of energy! I'm not going to lie, I felt awkward and I was totally lost but I continued to move and when the hour was up I couldn't believe how fast it went by. A month has now past and I look forward to going at least 3x a week... and I'm feeling better and fitting in to jeans and dresses I haven't been able to squeeze into for a couple years! I'm now sure I'll reach my goals and continue to gain the strength I need to increase my routine and classes.
These women have NO idea how they have changed my life! They have given me the energy to survive anything which is something I had lost along the way! It is SO much fun, I'm totally HOOKED!
Girls (Cecy & Wendy) you are total Rock Stars!!!!
