ISuccess story of Mr.Eric Payment
I’ve had back problems since I was 15...pain while walking, muscle spasms, it hurt to laugh, cough & I would hope and pray that I woudn't sneeze. While going to college, I would on a regular basis have to arrive late because I physically couldn't get out of bed. I would have to spend a few hours waiting for my muscles to warm up enough so that they wouldn't go into spasms while I rode the bus. I took little steps, walked very slow, could not reach below my knees. I was in constant pain and I gained a lot of weight. I was getting constant massage and chiropractic treatments which helped a lot but wouldn't last for more than a few days. I graduated college to become a Registered Massage Therapist so I could help people like me. That's when I got hired at Body Balance.
Sandi would say "why not try fitness? do a few classes!" I could shed some of my
extra pounds and it might be easier on my back and maybe get some more mobility in
my body. I thought she was nuts! After a few months of nudging I started with one
class a week (cardio sculpt). Sandi modified everything for me so that I could do
it with the class. I would do all of my ab exercises standing along with stretching
(I could not lay on the floor); all of the high impact moves were lessened to save
my poor back. After a few months I added a yoga class for more mobility, which was
heavily modified with a chair. Later I added another class (cardio-
Then in 2010, finally my doctors had figured out that my spine and ribs had fused awhile ago from a disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis, which is a disease that turns the soft tissues of your axial skeleton into bone. Best case scenario I would stay like I was, worst case..... it would degenerate and I would have to stop working and working out. Sandi was determined to keep me positive and working out as long as I was physically able and my doctors said it was ok.
At my heaviest I was 260 lbs, I am now 200 lbs. I am slimmer, in shape, I only modify
a few of my exercises, I do 4 fitness classes a week, I do most of the exercises
that my peers do in in the classes, I have more enregy!!! None of this was easy.....
most people are lucky to get this kind of support from their families, let alone
from where you work. I can walk without pain but I barely notice now....because
now I can RUN!:) Eric Payment, Participant/Registered Massage Therapist -

"I was in Sandi's Boot Camp classes while living in Winnipeg and had such great results! After moving to Ontario I struggled to find a place to workout. I was so happy when Sandi created her dvds.

Success story of Judith Mohammed
It was 2009 when my husband passed away and I started a new position at work. My
nephew got married and moved to Calgary. He was like a son to my husband and me.
My thoughts were everywhere and my focusing was not as strong as before. Where before
if I was at work I would multi-
"When I arrived at Body Balance in the spring of 2013, I was living a completely sedentary life. I was older than my years. I was always finding reasons not to move. I had unsuccessfully tried many diets; all left me feeling discouraged and heavier than when I started. I knew I had to get moving but when I had tried to increase my activity in the past I always ended up with an injury.
Now, in just 6 months, I feel great! I have more energy! I feel like dancing! I move differently. When I walk my strides are longer and my gait is quicker. I no longer rely on others to do everything for me. I am the one running up and down the stairs to get something! I feel happier.
The workouts Sandi has planned for me are both challenging and achievable. I feel successful. I have lost 35 lbs. I can fit into a favorite pair of jeans that I haven’t worn in years.
I am not sure where I am going on this fitness journey with Sandi but I can’t wait to find out!!"

Plugged in a laptop to the flat screen tv and voila! There's no excuse now...with Body Balance workout dvd's you can workout with the Team any where, any time, any place!
"I found my first two Pilates Class Sessions to be excellent for improving and maintaining balance and strengthening the core area and definitely think this is a great class for seniors who are interested in doing so. Sandi is an excellent instructor who keeps the needs of every class member in mind and adjusts the exercise accordingly to fit the students needs. All exercises are clearly explained and the benefit for doing them. Classes include all age groups and everyone is made to feel welcome no matter what your fitness level. I could definitely see the difference in the areas mentioned and look forward to attending another class in the fall."
" I have been a Body Balance Boot Camp participant since 2010. To my surprise, Boot
Camp wasn't as scary as I thought it would be and got me in the best shape I have
ever been. As my schedule no longer allows for me to attend Boot Camp, I decided
to see Sandi for Personal Training and concentrate the workouts on areas of my body
I wanted to improve. Since the first personal training session I knew that Sandi's
suggested workout regime was going to make a difference on the areas I was looking
to improve. Three weeks later I started noticing how my kids seemed "lighter" when
I picked them up, my low back was not hurting, my core was significantly stronger,
my posture improved quite a bit and I felt stronger overall. Also, with my second
pregnancy I developed diastasis recti and now, 2 years later I still had a gap of
1.5 to 2 fingers wide; six weeks after starting personal training with Sandi, the
gap is now only 1 finger-
