Back to school! Today is the first day back for many of our Cherokee Country kiddos but these mamas still made it out bright and early to start the week off right. The weather was warm, humid, and still.  Although this beatdown was back to our usual 45 minutes, our dripping faces and sweaty mats proved we still  torched a bunch of calories!



The usual: Jumping Jacks, Toy soldier and through the tunnels. One day I promise to mix it up… haha

On a special note:

This week marks my FIA-versary (8/3/2020)

Words can’t begin to describe how grateful I am to have you incredible ladies in my life. In just one year, you have made Canton become home to me, you have supported me when I needed it  most, you have been a shoulder to cry on, a constant source of encouragement and laughter. You have truly become family. I am forever grateful the Good Lord led me to the Union a year ago. I had no clue what a blessing it would be!  It is an honor to call you my friends. Love you and Thank you FIA friends!
