“...she presented a real, human side of her journey so far in fat activism and that she presented it in a way that allowed people of every size to learn to become comfortable with themselves."

“The people love it. They all vie for a chance at the remote answer button.  Jeanette intersperses the electronic game with exercise segments that fill the room with laughter. Her routines are gentle and can be done by any fitness level, physical ability, or size. The music is upbeat and fun and the dance steps and movements make for a lot of smiles and laughter. She presents with humor and a gentle spirit that creates a non-judgmental atmosphere.”
