Description

Dear Friends,

In 2008, while living in Boston, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Initially, my biggest fear was that I wouldn’t be able to walk or run, yet, exercise has been such a big part of my journey towards healing. In 2016, I started meeting with a new team of doctors, who emphasized how much exercise could help decrease my symptoms and prevent my MS from progressing further. I took their advice seriously and started to prioritize exercise by attending classes at the Fhitting Room! The Fhitting Room's positive, encouraging, and energetic trainers gave me the confidence I needed, and within months I started to feel stronger than I ever have!

In 2017, I began personal training with Melody Scharff (from the Fhitting Room) and because of our work together, I have learned so much about my body, form, and how to work-out better on my own. While working with Melody, I also continued to attend Fhitting Room classes and her Wednesday evening class with Ben Wegman quickly became one of my staples! I never thought a work-out studio could have such a big impact on my life, but Fhitting Room truly has. Both Melody and Ben (and all the other Fhitting Room instructors!) have such a special place in my heart for helping me on my path towards healing.

As my 10-year anniversary of living with MS approached, I knew I wanted to find a way to honor the “marathon” I have been running, and all those who have been “running” with me along the way. I’ve decided to celebrate this journey and push past my fears, by running the Boston Marathon (the city where I was diagnosed).

Melody and Ben have graciously volunteered to host a fitness class on Sunday, March 3rd at 3pm to help me fundraise for the Boston Marathon. Please come sweat with us! Bring your friends! Bring your partners! And spread the word! If the date does not work for you, please consider clicking the "donation" option. Every dollar donated will support me on my 26.2 mile victory lap through Boston.

xoxo Jessica Esposito
