It’s Just a Fitness Class

Poem by Debbie Graham of Boogie Bounce

 

It’s just a fitness class!

4 walls, a floor, and a roof

A stereo and a beat

Trainers and lycra

Movement to music

It’s just a fitness class!

Things get built here-

Stronger bodies.

Fitter bodies.

Confident bodies.

Things get broken here-

Barriers.

Silence.

Sweat.

…but it’s just a fitness class!

Friendships are forged.

Community is created.

We rally together in the sad times.

We celebrate the good times.

…but it’s just a fitness class!

We conquer our demons.

We relieve our stress.

We quiet the voices in our heads.

We feel at home here.

…but it’s just a fitness class!

It’s the date in our diary we never miss

It’s the time for us to be carefree.

It’s the place where we can let go.

It’s part of our lives.

It’s NOT just a fitness class.
