Local Fitness Instructor *Shania Lafayette is pleasantly surprised by the amount of new clients she has signed up this spring.
Lafayette reports that in the past years her classes have been occupied by 100% female clientele. However, this spring she has had an influx of local middle aged husbands and fathers requesting to reserve spots in her highly sought-after fitness classes.
She says, "You can tell that our society is finally evolving when men are willing to try out new things that have been traditionally female-dominated. My Zumba class is completely booked, and over 80% of my clients are men! It's great to see these guys taking care of themselves finally."
When asked about the sudden desire to participate in group fitness, local man *Dale McSimmons said that he heard Lafayette's husband was planning on being out of town on an extended hunting trip for the better part of the year and he, "...figured it would be a good idea to help Shania out by assisting in her fitness classes whenever she needs it."
*Mike Dole, a new class participant stated, "She really could use someone to watch her form closely. She can't see herself from behind, so I make damn sure to pay close attention for her. I don't want to see the poor girl throw out her back or strain a joint."
Lafayette states, "These guys are so nice and helpful. They always pitch in to help me get my quads stretched out, or meticulously wipe the dust off of my clothes."
When Lafayette's husband was contacted for a comment on his friendly male community members, he stated, "I will definitely be back sooner than they think."
