How it all began:
Free 2 Be Fit began as a vision of a local fitness program free from the strict guidelines of a franchise
organization.  Instructor Birgit wanted to be able to have the freedom to offer a wide variety of classes to
people of all ages in a variety of formats.  She wanted to be able to be sensitive to clients both young and
older, with and without special physical considerations.  She also wanted to be able to provide a feeling of
fun, friendship, and family, rather than focusing only on the bottom line.

What we do:
We offer a variety of fitness classes including Zumba, aerobic dance/strengthening classes, Pilates
classes, and body conditioning classes, all taught by certified and experienced instructors.  Each
instructor has a unique personality, just like each of our participants.  We don't try to make our instructors
fit into molds, but we do expect them to have knowledge of basic anatomy, exercise instruction, CPR, and
first aid.

What makes our classes different:
Have you ever been to a group exercise class where you quickly became tired of the same boring
repetitive techno. remakes that totally ruin your favorite songs?  You won't find that in our classes.  Ever
been to a class that was so complicated that you felt like a total idiot, had no fun, and thought you were
going to die?  You don't need to feel that way to get a good workout!  Physical fitness doesn't have to come
with damage to self esteem.

What our customers are like:  
Our customers are average people just like our instructors, ranging from teens to seniors.  We see
students, stay at home moms, working folks, and retirees walk through our doors.  We even have several
mom and daughter pairs that attend classes.  Chances are quite high that there is at least one person we
see who is a lot like you!

Some helpful information to know before attending a class:
We are located in the all purpose room of a church, which has a thinly padded carpeted floor.  Wear
appropriate aerobic or cross training shoes with good cushioning.  You may wear whatever you are most
comfortable wearing.  We have restroom facilities, weights, balance balls, mats, and resistance tubes.  
The room is heated and cooled.  We have supplemental fans for summer.
