DONNA ADAMS, Fit and Food Wellness Client
Since meeting Joy over 5 years ago during a community event they were sponsoring at the St. Louis County Library- Lewis & Clark Branch, I have benefited tremendously from The Fit & Food Connection. Since that time, I have participated in various in-person classes; however, when the pandemic happened and being in the “vulnerable” population, I was unsure how I would continue on my wellness journey. While the entire world was on “lock-down,” The Fit & Food Connection working diligently on creating ways to continue providing support to their community. I was so thankful that The Fit & Food Connection implemented their virtual wellness support groups which allowed me to continue on my health journey in the comfort of my home. I began my virtual experience in April 2020. Since that time, I have been able to participate in various classes ranging from exercise/workout classes, meditation/stress relief, grocery shopping tips and cooking demo’s, just to name a few. One thing I enjoy most about the exercise classes is that they are geared to be modified for all fitness levels. Without the implementation of the virtual classes, and being home for the past 9 months with no accountability, I know my health would have been jeopardized without the support of the virtual classes. I would like to send a big thank you to Joy and Gabi, along with the supportive staff and volunteers that so generously pour out their passion and wealth of wellness knowledge to helping myself and others in creating a healthy lifestyle.
