Success Story: Victoria Sage-Kaplan writes: “I am thoroughly enjoying all of your workouts and the variety they provide, from the kickboxing and aerobics to the yoga and pilates. They are all so very well-choreographed and so much fun to do, too. I feel so empowered and energized when the workouts are over. Keep up the great work and I am going to keep up with my workouts. Recently, I purchased seven of Janis's workouts on DVD, one for every day of the week, and I absolutely love every one of them. I am a 42 year old stay home mother of two, whom I also home school, and I also care full-time for my 100 year young grandmother. Let me tell you, I am under a lot of stress on a daily basis, so I need something for me, and that something is Janis Saffell. Janis' workouts make me sweat, make me sore, but most of all make me feel so good about working out. Her workouts are top rate, excellently choreographed, and quite a lot of fun to do, even my 12 year old daughter enjoys doing them. Janis has a fantastic personality.”
