  • I attended the June 3rd event which was my first time. It was AWESOME! Sheri and Mike are amazing and deserve a lot of credit for pulling this together and instructing. Sharing hi-fives and hugs with the others really helped to create a sense of community. The crowd was fantastic and the view of the ocean made my day! Put it all together and it is one of the best ways to start off my day. Thanks to everyone behind this. Made me proud to be a fitbit user!

  • Hi Sheri,
    It’s great to read your bio, you certainly are a wonderful encourager for many! I met you briefly at the San Diego Rock n Roll marathon yesterday at the half marathon relay area. Thanks for encouraging me to visit fitbit local. I’m glad I did. Best wishes with your many programs. Gabrielle Struble

  • Thank you Mike and Sheri for the GREAT yoga session at Belmont Park. I attended with 3 of my beautiful friends that, together with me, are on a weight-loss and better fitness journey. We love that we found your events, as it’s getting us out to enjoy healthy activities. We can not wait for the next one and have other pals asking us about our journey after we posted on FB. You are both such an inspiration. <3

  • Wondering when Fitbit is going to come out with a device that’s how’s and monitors blood pressure as well as the heart rate and will also be water proof for swimming and sweat proof.
