How did you find FFS?
I was hanging out with my friend Caroline and I was telling her about how unhappy I was. She started to tell me about this studio she had been going too and she looked amazing! She told me I needed to go, that I would love it and immediately signed me up for two classes to take the next day!
How did you know FFS was the right fit for you?
I walked into the studio and was immediately approached and welcomed with open arms. As soon as I walked in, these people made me feel empowered and motivated without even knowing them. I felt right at home.
What was the biggest challenge you have overcome since joining?
Joining the studio has impacted my life in every aspect. Before I joined, I was so unhappy with my life and myself. I had no motivation to want better or to make the effort to do better. The studio has had a huge impact on my physical health but most importantly my mental health. My mindset and the way I look at myself is drastic from when I walked through those doors 8 months ago. I was so extremely toxic and negative in my head and I was drowning in it. The studio has taught me how to love myself and being surrounded by all these motivating and inspiring human beings makes me want to be a better person every day. I am so beyond thankful to call this place my sacred home and to have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing souls. I couldn’t imagine my life without any of you!
What’s your favorite class?
My favorite classes for sure are all of the Buti classes. The atmosphere, the music, the vibes, the grunting and dancing light my soul on fire. It puts me in an element I can’t explain, you just have to come try it out for yourself! But I do also enjoy all the other classes! All of the instructors are amazing and unique in their own ways.
What’s your advice to people just staring at FFS?
Be prepared to become apart of something bigger than yourself in the best way. Don’t talk about it, BE about it!! Come try a class and I promise you won’t regret it!
Some thoughts about Chelsea from FRIENDZ….
“Chelsea is one of the most badass women I’ve ever had the pleasure of calling my friend. She’s an active military member, which I admire so much, and am so thankful to her for her service. She’s unapologetically herself in every situation. She takes many classes back to back and her drive and determination are awe inspiring. She’s always there with a hug to share, and kind words to compliment others. And, her bright and beautiful smile could light up any room!!” ~ Jen Daby
