July-August 2015

Hi Jami!
Many years ago (I began as a trainer in 1995) I contacted you in early 2000 to see if you had any employment opportunities at Phillyfit. The timing wasn’t right for you and I always remember how inspiring you were in your response to my emails, reinforcing my belief of hard work & staying positive. The impact you left on me then was something I appreciate even now. You were an icon in the training industry and here you were answering my emails personally. I commend you for all the hard work and effort it took to create such a strong presence. I admire where you are in your profession & the growth of Phillyfit shows your work ethic & abilities.

Good Morning!
Just read that article.  Wow.  I printed out the 3 pages on this wonderful color laser printer they gave us at the office, so I can read it over a few times, whenever I start to crawl back into my rabbit hole again.
I’m glad you are finding the old Jami again.  That makes me happy to see.  You’ve always been an inspiration to me, as well as so many others.
I’m trying some of the things you mention.. the new music, new places to go, new friends…knowing you’re back, is really great.  It’s inspiring. Thanks for printing that.  It helped me feel better today.”

Hi Jami!
Your piece in this issue (April magazine) is AWESOME! It took me over 20+ years to realize that to be authentic, to be myself is be-YOU-tiful! Oh I hope you touch upon this topic more often to let people know that it is okay to be real, genuine and true to yourself, not because of others but because you love yourself! Keep up the GREAT work!
I read somewhere that God gives his soldiers the hardest battles because He knows we can handle it! You got this! Keep going Jami! I’m proud of you 😀

PhillyFIT Magazine,
Hey, I just got the digital copy of the upcoming PhillyFIT Magazine and the article on Drexel University’s workout facility/trainers looks incredible!  I’m so stoked to open the magazine and see the content we discussed and the way it’s professionally done, looks sooo good.  You rock!  I hope that the article is a good read for your readers.  We are so proud of our team here and the way we are establishing the facility and our trainers as the standard in the area with our unique approach. Thank you for believing in the article. Let’s catch up soon and don’t be a stranger to the facility!

Jami and PhillyFIT,
Thank you for the PHILLYFIT Magazine! I am enjoying the articles, pictures and ads! I even like the rustle sounds when I turn the pages (I am reading the online version, how cool)!!! Take care and may you have a wonderful day! Love & Light!

Dear Ms. Appenzeller,
First of all, I LOVE your magazine. I think it’s such an amazing asset to our fitness community here in Philadelphia. I’m quite sure you hear that a lot, but I couldn’t help but tell you.

    March/April 2016. You wanted feedback about the anonymous letter you received from (Dear Future Love of my life)…As flattering as it may seem on the surface, that guy is really needy and looking for someone to give and give and give back. He will suck the blood out of you. He will constantly need reinforcement and re-affirmation that u care for him and that he is 0h-so wonderful.

    An awesome guy will grab you with his words (and arms) with out all the conditions and excuses. He will ask you what he can give you instead of telling you what is wrong with him or what you need to prove to him that you are worthwhile.

    Regardless of any of his surface successes, that guy is an emotional loser. Life will be sad with him.

    Conclusion: Avoid him like the plague!

      Hi Diane….
      🙂 this is a great reply….the letter wasnt a man “for me” per say…just a letter I stumbled upon ….but your point is so well taken!
