Happy Turkey Day & Thanksgiving to all! Is it me, or has 2011 been a crazy whirlwind? I can’t believe that we only have two months left and T-Day is this week?! Take a deep breath guys we made it through 2011. Spend some time with family this week and give thanks for all the things that went right this year. May your time at home or with friends this week be very special.
On this Thanksgiving I have a lot to be thankful for. It took me awhile to put this email together because I didn’t know what to say… Thank you for believing in me, thank you for following me to extreme workouts with red lighting, outside in the freezing rain, in pop-up studios where books and produce are sold, around New York City blocks clapping and cheering, in dark spin studios across the city. Thank you for believing in me even when I didn’t believe in myself… Thank you New York City.
September & October was my final curtain call. Thank you to all my faithful fitness followers you tried Barry’s Bootcamp & Kiwi Sweat SPIN. My last couple of classes were filled with joy and tears. I appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and love… it means the world.
Next month is my final email to you as a Full-Time New Yorker… Of course I’ll be back for BOOTYCamp! 2012 and other fun events around town, but our 8 year term came to an end last month and for me it brought a lot of emotion. I grew up with you guys and that’s not to be taken lightly…
New York is a wonderful city to learn your craft and build a company, I cannot think of a better place to find yourself… It’s off to Los Angeles now to navigate new adventures. I have to admit I wasn’t thrilled about this move for many months… but now something has shifted in me and I know it’s time.
Thank you for helping me to get to this point with your love, thank you for showing me that when I leave I won’t be forgotten. To me sweating together is more than working out it’s creating a bond that lasts a lifetime.
This Thanksgiving I’m thankful for you.

*Feeling a Little off?!
I’m writing to let you know about Dr. Doug Willen. I feel he is someone that should be in everyone’s rolodex/iphones as he is truly a gift to our wellness community. He is a Chiropractor, Nutritionist and Diet Coach with an office on Broadway and 20th street.
I first met Dr. Doug when he was taking my spin class every Wednesday for a year and worked with him on an injury I had, his personal care and bedside manner is like no other!
So I decided to approach him about a creating a special offer for my students:
Normally he charges $175 for the first visit and $90 for follow-up visits for body alignment, chronic injuries and chiropractic.
For my friends he will reduce the first visit to: $50 for the first visit (30 minutes) $45 for follow-ups. (about 15 minutes) **You can also book extended time if needed!
For Nutrition/Weight loss/ Natural Solutions from Hormones to Digestion he normally charges $225 for the first hour and $125 for a follow-up half hour. Read more here… http://bit.ly/r6dnUj For my friends it will be: $125 first hour appt. $75 for follow up (30 minutes).
