After breaking my clavicle, I could not play polo for an extended period, which put me under real financial pressure. Such constraints meant I would have had to have regained my fitness at home.
Your generosity enabled me to train in an environment much more conducive to success. Just like horses, professional polo players must be fit and prepared to succeed on the field...especially at my age!
Likewise, fitness and understanding the body seems to be an ongoing learning experience and there is no shortage of expert advice at the jungle club, it is amazing what one can learn by asking your staff of trainers.
Special kudos to Bob Glickstein, who few may realize, does not teach yoga because he needs to but because he chooses to. He studied under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, one of the very most revered Indian Yogis. Like many military commandos and professional athletes I am realizing the amazing benefits to this ancient and proven discipline.
To All the Staff and Trainers,
I want to share with all of you my heartfelt thanks for all the kindness you have shown to me at the Jungle Club. I am a new resident of Vero Beach and didn’t know a soul except family when I moved here. I have struggled with many difficult adversities in my life and was worried about my move and making friends in a new town. All of you made me feel so welcome. I especially want to give a special thanks to those special individuals (you know who you are) who have worked so hard with me - both on an individual basis and in class - and given so genuinely of their time. When I first started at the Jungle Club, I was struggling with my weight and was terribly out of shape; I hadn’t seen the inside of a gym in over 20 years. Because of the dedication all the trainers have to their profession, they have inspired me to work hard and achieve goals, both in the gym and out, that I never thought I was capable of. I have lost body fat, gained strength and most of all confidence in myself. I can’t begin to say what that means to me. To every trainers and staff member of the Jungle Club, you are remarkable people, and I want to thank you for welcoming me and really making me feel a part of the Jungle Club.
"I love the Jungle Club because of the positive energy that surrounds you when you workout here and wonderful staff that greets you when you walk through the doors. I LOVE Zumba!"
Staff at Jungle Club,
I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed your facility this past month. I attended most of the classes at 5:30am and 5:30pm and everyone has been incredible. The staff and teachers are so friendly and helpful and I wish I could pick up this gym and bring it back with me to Illinois. It was the perfect gym and I've had the pleasure of working out here. Just want you all to know you are appreciated!
