Shannon was such an asset to our event….Her personal story connected with the people attending the event as she shared her fears and her strengths during her recent battle against Ovarian cancer. Shannon’s message to keep your eye on the larger goal, but focus on what you can do day by day, or even hour by hour resonated with all the people who have been touched by this disease. So many attending the Soroptimist Vicki Linn Walk commented that Shannon was warm and approachable. and they were in awe at her accomplishments. I was especially touched by a young women who drove several hours, hoping to meet her gymnastic idol. Shannon took the time to speak to her and allowed a special moment for pictures. She was also generous to everyone who wanted a picture, autograph and even allowed others to try on her gorgeous gold medals.
We are so grateful that Shannon was with us for that special day and she certainly made a great contribution to the success of the Vicki Linn Walk for Ovarian Cancer Awareness.

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!
