BENEFITING: NMOTION HEALTH AND WELLNESS
EVENT DATE: Mar 06, 2013
N:MOTION Studio is a non-denominational, Christian wellness center that's just for women. We know women! We know that when a woman feels bad, she thinks bad, she eats badly and, she loves badly. Her relationships with her husband, her children, her co-workers and even with God; well, it's just all bad!
In our daily lives, we noticed there were a lot of awesome women who serve the needs of their churches, family, friends and humanity at large, but who never spend time renourishing their own health. So, we created a low impact workout that combines cardio (indoor cycling), strength (weights) and stretching over a 75 minute period and named it the TRINITY Class (get it?:). Each class ends with a time of meditation and prayer. Once you start exercising you need to eat better, right? So we offer nutrition education classes (our "FUEL" classes) so the ladies can feed themselves and their families better!
...Just between you and me, I'll share a secret with you. (SHHH!) Our real goal is to help connect these awesome ladies to connect with and experience the Love of God! Keep that on the down lo please! They believe they are coming for a great workout and to learn how to eat and cook healthier! Oh, we give 'em that, but God has SO MUCH MORE for them to receive!...
This ministry has been a big success over the last two years and we have helped over 1,000+ women at our studio in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Our goal is to serve as many women as possible in our community and to make this offering possible in yours too! Did we say that we operate entirely from donations? We don't want access to Jesus and good health to be limited by the ability to pay.
We love it (our instructors and leadership work for free), our women love it (our bikes and mats are full a lot of the time), BUT our bikes are wearing out (I'm being kind here..... they really need to be put to out to pasture!!). And, our rent needs to be paid (we pay in full and upfront, so we can get a deep discount). Plus, you know the devil loves debt... so we won't go there!). We need your help to raise some money to pay the rent ($25,000), replace the bikes ($35,000), do some local marketing to help more women know we exist ($5,000) and beef up our administrative software management and website ($10,000.00) and hire a little help ($10,000.00).
If we can get this funding secured, we believe that within the next year, we will be able to plant another studio, giving them all the tools they need to open their own and serve more women.
In His health,
Founder (aka just a girl following God's lead!)
PS Here's a snapshot of what the ladies are saying:
"This place is such a gift. Through the hills today God wanted all of us to know that "He is able"... His strength is sufficient, his grace is sufficient, his love and mercy belongs to his children if we will just receive it." ~ C.M.
"That God would call us to "a bike" to travel into a worship time with Him only verifies how much time He really wants to spend guiding, leading, ministering, and helping us. Tandom Bike Riding at it Best!" ~ M.F.
"I came to your class today and I LOVE you and the work you are doing there. I can't wait to come back!!!!!!" ~ M.A.
"I love this place. Thank you for such a great experience!" ~ S.D.
"THE MOST POWERFUL SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCE this morning at the Trinity class! What an Amazing Good Friday!... The Best I've ever had!!" ~ D.J.
"You can't possibly understand how much coming to this place has changed my life." ~ S.O.
"My family knows when I haven't been to N:MOTION in a while. I need that time to get my head out of the weeds and see God's perspective. The exercise is just an added benefit." ~ S.M.
"I used to go to church on Sunday and leak all week. Now I fill up in between Sunday's at N:MOTION!" ~ J.S.
