May Ripped Person – Wendy

✨ 94 classes ago I walked up those daunting steps and introduced myself to the front desk. It was time for me to try something new and this was going to be a real challenge for me. I have never run a day in my life and I remember telling the front desk that I hoped that it was ok that I would walk on the tread and try and day by day see if I can work up to a jog. Here I am now with a PR of close to 9.0 (which to me is like I am about to fly off the treadmill). I have since day one felt like a part of the Ripped family. I suffer from Anxiety and when I get on the treadmill in the dark room, I get 45 minutes to burn off all the anxiety I have. “I have never felt so connected to a work out and the people that surround me.Each and every time, both the instructors and the others in the room give me an energy that is indescribable. “Not only do I get to work out and be with my “Ripped Family”, I have gotten the chance to share my side business wendy fleischman with everyone. I have had the pleasure of having pop-ups and now get to see @beadzy_design on so many wrists. I have to really thank my two good friends @mikkibrownell (tread 4 and my weekly sidekick) and @toriwolgin (tread 6) for getting me through inclines that half the time I think I may die. As I approach 100 classes, my birthday and being Ripped Person of the month, I have to say that I am so grateful for my Ripped Family and can’t want to celebrate so many things this month.
