    E. Faith is a selfless, amazing, enthusiastic, high energy fitness instructor. She is truly invested in her students, working to improved our overall health, as well as our bodies. E. Faith motivates us at each and every class, sends us healthy food tips and recipes. Her classes are amazing, fun and meets everyone at their fitness level. She encourages and challenges us to work to our best ability and push a little further each time, but to always honor your body. See ensures we are doing the exercises correctly and has no problem calling us out when we are not. I have really enjoyed her classes over the last 2 plus years and hate to miss them. I have removed 22 pounds and am working to remove 20 more. I love the classes, the pop-up classes, the informational sessions she puts together with other fitness instructors, the food tips and absolutely everything that E. Faith (Fit With Faith) does. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You rock, keep doing you!

    E. Faith always has a positive and energetic attitude to get and keep all her students motivated. She pushes us to be our best but not to overdo, encouraging us to only do what we can, what our bodies can tolerate. She doesn't just provide exercise classes for our fitness health but also brings in other health professionals to share and give us points on how to change our lifestyle through adopting a healthier diet and other exercise forums. First Lady, I appreciate all you do and your patience with us.

    FitWithFaith will make a stronger, happier and healthier YOU! For those struggling with weight, eating right and exercising, this program is for you. Faith provides support, knowledge and encouragement. With an effervescent personality, she makes exercising entertaining, challenging and FUN! She is an AMAZING fitness coach!
    After over a year of inspiring, and invigorating exercise with Faith, the pandemic hit. I was unsure if a virtual group exercise platform could address my specific needs. I had nearly reached my weight goal, and needed to focus attention on maintenance, but also on toning my entire body, especially the arms and buttocks.
    Faith’s full body workout exercise routines addresses all parts of the body, as well as challenging your fiscal coordination, flexibility, strength and balance. You see this becomes very important, as we age gracefully. I’m impressed with how she will customize workout routines to address specific limitations of some students, and provides a step-by-step demonstration, when needed, to ensure proper exercise form, to avoid injury or discomfort. With an eagle’s eye on the virtual screen, she’s always observing, noticing and addressing fatigue and providing words of encouragement to help get you through and get the most out of each session.
    Faith continually shares recipes and health tips to improve our food choices and eating habits. I am grateful for her time and commitment to her students, and how she genuinely cares about our health and progress!

    Pam, I'm so blushing after reading your review. Thank you so much for trusting me with your fitness goals. You are a phenomenal client. I only worry about your overachieving. Yet there is no doubt your demeanor has changed significantly from the hesitant beginning to now the 'bring it on' attitude. Because of you, I am! I also sit here laughing at the 'eagle eye' comment, knowing I'm blind in one eye.:). Thank you for being you and the light you bring to the room.

    The COVID 19 pandemic lockdown has been a challenge for us all. We were faced with a sudden abruptness of our daily lives and regular routines resulting in a feeling of isolation and emptiness. I thought our exercise gathering was over! However, thanks to technology, E. Faith Bell found a way to continue to connect with her exercise group. Her commitment to the well-being of others (both physically and mentally) is admirable. Through her “enthusiastic prompting” and “personalized instruction” I managed to stay engaged with so much fun and excitement. Despite my mobility issues and my tender (opps! senior) age of 70 I was able to lose 15 pounds during this pandemic year. The connections with my classmates were awesome! Special thanks to E. Faith for keeping me sane and healthy! Peace On The Move! Let’s keep going!

    Response by E. Faith Bell on Apr 02, 2021

    Yvonne, thank you for hanging in there. Wow, have you come such a long way. You were always energetic, prompt and engaged, but then you became a star in your own right. You ensured when on vacation, you were not going to stop your fitness program. During the pandemic, you worked your schedule around class and made our class community the better for it. No one would ever know your age, except you tell it. :) Thank you for your support, your investment in yourself, and your lovely assistance to others when they need a word of encouragement. I'm still excited about those bags of leaves you raked, as well as those planks and burpees. What an inspiration to all. Thank you for trusting me.

    After retiring three years ago, I needed a way to keep active and not “retire to my rocking chair, a book or television”. Before the pandemic, E. Faith had an exercise class every Wednesday, for an hour, at Peace Baptist Church. Since the pandemic, she has virtual classes three days a week, three time a day, one on Saturday morning and an occasional “flash” class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I cannot begin to explain how, at the age of 71, her classes have benefited me. On my two-week trip to South Africa in 2019, I was able to keep up with the many tours we did to various museums, churches, shopping and walking a mile and a half of the Victoria Falls National Park in Zimbabwe and not be totally fatigued at days end. During this pandemic, when feeling a “little depressed” and goring on junk food (she encourages us to eat healthy snacks, but oh well!), I know that I can take a class with E. Faith and feel better about myself. She is always there to provide modified exercises when we need them, explaining how our exercising is helping our bodies, constant encouragement to eat “green”, and issuing monthly challenges to keep us reaching for our personal fitness goals through exercise. I am blessed that “The Happy Energizer Bunny”, as I call her, is my exercise instructor! “We choose Life” is our mantra and I’m enjoying my life every day. Thank you, E. Faith!

    Cyn Cyn; thank you for your kind words. There are no words to describe your commitment to fitness and 'gosh' you are the epitome of desire to stay in shape, regardless of age. Not only have you encourage all who are willing to listen to your story, but you search out others to assist and befriend into fitness. I am honored to be in ministry with you and even richer because of it.
