Family matters

Fitness facility specializes in changing lives

(Continued)

BROWNSBURG —

“One of the many things I love about HIP is that Jamie has created a fitness family,” says Samantha Beery, who has been a patron for over two years, “not just a place to go exercise. They are also women who support each other and build each other up with encouragement. I cannot imagine my life without it now.”

“Jamie has an enthusiasm and brightness about her,” adds Beth Linginfelter. “I struggle with chronic circulatory problems and being able to regularly practice yoga and cardio helps mitigate my health issues. I definitely am a healthier, happier person by knowing and experiencing HIP Fitness.”

And some of the stories go deeper than that, stories that allow Kibby to understand what the place means to so many other than her.

“I’m working with a gal right now, her daughter was 13-years-old and passed away. She’d been in major depression,” explains Kibby.

“She’s lost almost 15 pounds now and told me that it’s changing her. I feel like we connect, because a lot of us are all moms too. It’s not just exercising.

“I have another gal I work with, she comes from a very abusive background,” adds Kibby. “Her husband is in jail right now, and when she first started coming here, she’d stay in the back. Now she’s always right up front. You wouldn’t believe the confidence in some of these women.”

With that, Kibby says that the place has been more than just an inspiration on them, in turn they’ve done the same for her.

“They’ve changed my life,” says Kibby of the men and women she works with. “It’s hard to describe, but they’ve given me self-confidence too. I think before I did this, I wasn’t a go-getter. I was a follower. Since this, I’m a more confident person.”
