I met Dorothy when I joined her Studio in High bridge about 18 months ago. I had been quite ill and was in the worst physical shape of my life. My doctor had cleared me to begin physical activity and I started at the Studio. Dorothy helped me tremendously by giving her expertise as well as encouraging me, becoming my biggest cheer leader! She has been as excited as I have been as each goal is met. I went from mild stretching to pilates. I was VERY reluctant to SPIN…actually afraid. Dorothy gently encouraged me and demystified Spinning for me showing me the road to success. I now SPIN three times per week. I have gained muscle, confidence and personal strength. Dorothy empowered me. We work as a team. She’s become a valued friend and even volunteers her time and skill monthly at the adult day care center that I direct. She is a remarkable woman with incredible energy that she brings to everything she does. I cannot recommend her more highly.
I have worked out in many different fitness establishments and have never had the individual attention I get at The Studio. Only The Studio provides small classes where I get personalized instruction maximizing my abilities without negative judgment from the instructor or others in the class. Whether at an experienced level or just starting out, anyone can try a class without feeling lost or excluded because the instructors offer modifications whenever needed. Dorothy is always positive and encouraging in her classes. It’s clear she thoroughly enjoys what she does for a living and we are so blessed to reap the benefits of her passion for fitness.
I first met Dorothy several years ago when she began teaching spinning at the gym I am a member of. She is nothing short of amazing! Her classes are challenging and inspiring. I would never miss her class.
When she left to open her own spinning studio I still made the longer trip to attend her classes. I could not do without her inspiration. Her classes are my “therapy” and always make me feel better no matter what kind of day I am having. Dorothy makes you feel good about yourself. She challenges and encourages her class. I was never much of an “athlete”, but Dorothy has helped me become a stronger more fit and happier person.
To prove that, Dorothy has encouraged me to become a spinning instructor myself, which I am in the process of now. Without her I never would have thought that I could do that, and with her help, I know I can succeed.
It’s amazing to me that for the first time in my adult life, I find myself looking forward to exercising and am disappointed (instead of elated) when I have to miss a class due to some conflict. The Studio in High Bridge (operated by Dorothy Henderson) is small, flexible and extremely positive and motivating. There is a good variety of classes, and every class I attend has a different routine, avoiding the boredom of repetition. I take classes with Dorothy 3 days a week. She knows her students likes and dislikes as well as limitations and addresses them to provide a personalized experience in a small group setting. I am so glad The Studio has made me part of their welcoming family and it is now part of my daily routine. Laraine M.
The Studio has been a life change for me! I never liked to exercise, now I can’t go without it! Over the past 17 months I lost 32 lbs. & have gone down 3 sizes in my clothes! Dorothy makes her classes fun. She has an incredible gift to teach fitness & I am so fortunate to have met her.
