Integrated Wellness Program

You may have seen news that we’ve added an Integrated Wellness Program. What it means for you is an easy way to access healthy sports nutrition alternatives for use before, during and after your workouts; chemical-free household cleaners, natural skin care and weight loss options, and more.

We offer this specific program for a couple of reasons:

First – many of you probably know that I (Vicky here) don’t personally take any income or “paycheck” out of the studio (maybe some day!). All of your tuition for classes I teach, and the studio’s portion of classes taught by the other instructors, stays in the studio to pay bills and provide upgrades to the service you receive.

This specific program (Shaklee) not only provides you with healthier and natural alternatives, but assists in providing a bit of extra income for the studio so we can continue to grow.

Second – I’ve personally used Shaklee products for years, and would never offer products in the studio that I do not personally recommend.

Shaklee’s line of products has allowed my household to remove many potentially harmful chemicals from our environment and life. Plus, we actually prefer and love quite a few of the products above the traditional store-bought options.

Samples of several products are available in the studio (if you’ve tried some, I’d love to hear your feedback), and purchases are always available at the Integrated Wellness Program link on our website at Hit the Ground Dancing or you can go directly to our Shaklee site at http://hitthegroundhealthy.myshaklee.com/ Be watching for special combination offers!
