    I am SOOOOoooo thrilled to hear of so many plus size fitness classes and locations. For most of my 30 years as a plus size fitness professional I have not had much company. It is wonderful to see so many businesses now addressing these important needs.

    Thank you so much for writing this article. I hope your readers will check out my 12 different plus size workouts on DVD (and VHS): http://kellybliss.com/plussize_fitness/12_Workouts.php
