I wanted to thank you all for the positive impact you’ve had on my life so you can fully understand how much you’ve helped me, as I think it’s really important to let you know just how much of a difference your classes have made.
I booked into my first class at the beginning of October… I never turned up to this first class because I was absolutely terrified but booked in again a week later to Bonnie’s Diva class and never looked back. Bonnie was so welcoming and I felt so comfortable and capable in that first class. I left feeling a thousand times more confident than when I went in and so immediately booked into another workshop with Kelechi that weekend. This was when I realised that coming regularly was a no brainer if I could have that much fun and still call it a workout. I never expected to be able to manage the routine but Kelechi’s energy got me through it. By January I had a full membership and I now come to SOS pretty much every day that classes run. I cannot express how much of a life saver it has been. Coming to class ensures that I always end the day on a high and am able to completely switch off any negative or anxious thoughts for at least an hour a day. The dancing itself relieves so much anxiety for me because it gives all of the regular benefits of exercise that we all know about, but with an added confidence boost. That paired with the energy and enthusiasm that all of you guys bring to class mean that coming can really pick me up no matter how bad a day I’ve had, or how anxious I’m feeling when I arrive.
I’ve felt my confidence grow so much in the time the SOS team has been teaching me. Elliot’s pep talks always convince me to push myself and quickly get rid of any negative energy that starts to appear when I’m making mistakes. He's such an amazing advocate of self love and like all of the teachers at SOS he creates a safe environment to express yourself that I wouldn’t have found anywhere else. I’ve lost a stone and a half of weight since joining as a member and I never thought I could enjoy exercising until I tried SWEAT. I would have laughed at you if you told me that you'd have me doing (and kind of enjoying) sit-ups, until I met Keeley.
