How Did You Become a Part of iGnite?
I needed a new place to work out after my gym closed. I asked a friend about iGnite and she was so gracious to invite me and make me feel comfortable for the first few times. Funny story- my daughter had heard about iGnite from a friend of hers who worked for the company. When I told her what I was thinking of doing, she said, "Oh Mom, I think it's a women's empowerment thing and if you get any more empowered, I'll be terrified of you."
