Community Spotlight: Helen Owens Fitness

This month marks one year since Helen started offering classes as Helen Owens Fitness! Helen's approach is all about passion, fitness, life, community and don't forget FUN. Helen offers Zumba, dance-FIT and Insanity classes. Private sessions also available for Girl's Night Out, social events or corporate wellness program.

Here is what Helen had shared with her followers on her one year anniversary:

"It's been an amazing and soulfully-rewarding journey.

So first, I want to say, THANK YOU!!! Truly, thank you for being a part of this journey that every one of you have been a part of -- for your smiles, for your energy, for your support, for your encouragement.

My mission was and continues to be this: 

  • Develop a community of support and encouragement for REAL people who live REAL lives, in their journey for health and fitness.
  • Help EMPOWER people to embrace fitness resulting in feeling healthier, happier, more confident, sexier! 

When I started this program, I didn’t know what to expect. But what I know now is that I truly have been blessed with the opportunity to do what I do - primarily because of the people I’ve met in this community...YOU! A network of genuine people who make me smile and continue to drive me to give my best.


I can't think of a better way to celebrate this milestone than to give back to our wonderful community!

Throughout the entire month of October, Helen Owens Fitness will donate $1 to the Franklin Food Pantry for EVERY person who comes to sweat for a cause, to ANY and ALL classes! That's all you have to do...just show up for classes!

Bring your friends and family...this is the month when your sweat will not only pay off toward a healthier you, but will also help make a difference in someone else's life! The more people who come to sweat each class, the more you can drive up that donation amount! Every "BODY" can help somebody!

In addition, I will RAFFLE off a punch card good for 5x FREE CLASSES (a $50 value) at Helen Owens Fitness! Each raffle ticket is $5.  Tickets can be purchased during class hours or contact me directly to arrange a purchase. At the end of the month, I will randomly select a WINNER! All proceeds from raffle ticket purchases will be donated to the Franklin Food Pantry.

So, 3 easy ways to contribute!
1) Come sweat in class, frequently this month. Bring your friends and family!
2) Donate dollars or perishable/non-perishable items.
3) Buy raffle tickets for a chance to win 5x FREE CLASSES.

As we head into the colder months and the holiday season, the need will be even greater. Let's rally together to help make a difference, right here locally!"
