She won seven Olympic Medals. She won multiple U.S. and World Titles in a career that left her the most decorated American gymnast of all time …and she won our hearts when she came to speak in Fairfield as part of the CT Challenge Speaker Series. As tough as she is tiny, with humor and a heart as big as any world stage, she inspired a crowd of close to 300, including more than 50 cancer survivors, with her take on winning, losing, falling and getting back up to land on top …as an athlete, as a person and in her own victory over ovarian cancer. She was so patient, compassionate and authentic to everyone who came–cancer survivors (young and old), aspiring gymnasts and the general public. Everyone felt lucky to have heard her speak. Her appeal is broad and timeless.

We could not have asked for a better U. S. Olympic athlete to meet the SHRM 2012 attendees in Atlanta, GA. Shannon is gracious and engaging. She gave each attendee the attention they asked for, having conversations and giving encouraging words. She always kept a smile on her face from morning until night!

I would just like to tell you how much the fitness post pregnancy DVD has been so much help to me. I had terrible pelvic pain, mostly after my first child,which inhibited the excerise I could tolerate, including walking. I was in physical therapy for about a year, with some positive results, but never fully recovered. I just had my second child almost a year ago, and have been using these DVD’s for about 3 weeks or so. I have lost 6 pounds and feel great, including my pelvic pain. I only had pain after the first couple times. The strength training DVD workouts are really great for the core, which is what I needed to work on. I also started doing the boot camp DVD workouts, still need to work on some moves, but LOVE it!! Cant wait to be able to buy more of your DVDs. Thank you for putting out such realistic workout DVDs for people like me!
