Two years ago I wrote a testimonial for my 56th birthday (see below) about my limited experience with Kaliente At that time, I didn’t feel as though I was really living. Outside from the children’s lives I felt that I did not have a life. Well, here it is two years later, and I am here to tell you that life can begin in your fifties!!!
I am sometimes speechless when I try to describe the feeling I get when that music begins and we start to dance and laugh and sweat! I feel truly alive when I am dancing with this group of women and men and these instructors, and, oh yeah, that cute guy behind the desk!!!.
You guys are truly amazing!
This year again, I want to give You a birthday present for my birthday: The Gift of Thanks.
Now, two years ago when I gave a testimonial, I asked it to remain anonymous. Not this time! I want everyone to know what a good thing I have!
Thank You Kaliente for Doing What you Do and Being who you are!!!!

Even got the tattoo to prove it!!!
To My Kaliente Girls:
I just recently celebrated my 56th birthday!! Wow, normally I would be pretending it wasn’t happening….. you know another year older. But, not this year. This year I want to give YOU a birthday present for my birthday: The Gift of Thanks.
When I walked through these doors almost one year ago, It was a difficult time in my life. I was beginning to realize my kids were getting older and I could actually have a life, but I didn’t. My daughter, as sweet as she is, was not being very sweet at all? I was carrying about 15 extra pounds for which I had gained from quitting smoking 3 years before, and had just change jobs where I sit all day. There’s more but I thing you get the point.
I came to my firs class in January, 2014. I made it 18 minutes and thought I was dying. I left the class, but not the gym. I sat outside at the trainers desk and watched. I knew I would be back. the reason I knew, was because I watch Jen teach. She was yelling and laughing and OMG, dancing, and I wanted to be part of that!! I did keep coming back. And each time I did I felt more alive then I had in years!!!
I introduced myself to each and everyone of your girls; star struck I guess! I was intrigued. Wanted to know how you did it. How you made exercise fun and how your classes kept me feeling good and alive every time. Well I still don’t know how you do it; just know that it works…. and it keeps on working!!!!
Carmen, Jen, Monica, Chandni – you have touched my life in ways I can only begin to put in writing –
I love you all……
