She’s that good.

The Word of Mouth event was inspired by gossip; in this case, the good gossip. Last month, lululemon Roosevelt Field hosted their first Word of Mouth event at Lifetime Fitness in Garden City. Store ambassador, Regina Smith, shared her story with a small group. Last night, we adventured to Wantagh for lululemon’s second event where Kaley Young shared her story. For those of you who don’t know Kaley, she is the owner of Hot Pilates Secret in Wantagh. Her mother built HPS and created a class that not only works up a sweat, but inspires you to dig a little deeper. “Think of three things you are grateful for just for today.”  After her mom passed away from breast cancer, Kaley became dedicated to sharing the love and kindness her mom had created.

L: Thoughtful. Sincere. Inspiring. Motivated. These are words that come to mind when I think of Kaley. I got to know Kaley from the time when I worked at lululemon in the Roosevelt Field Mall. I’ve taken her pilates classes, learned to do a headstand, and had margaritas and pizza in her backyard; but last night I was able to listen to her full story. She’s that good.

P: Emotional and empowered are two words to summarize the evening for me. It was such a special evening as Kaley took us on her journey and how she has overcome so many obstacles in her lifetime with the power of love. A couple years ago I was able to take a couple of classes at HPS. From the moment you walk in the door, you can immediately sense there is something magical happening in that studio. 

Kaley and the employees of lululemon pulled off an amazing event! Kaley’s backyard was set up with blankets, heat lamps (it was kinda chilly last night), a s’mores bar, and a projector to share some memories. Oh! and wine 🙂 We chatted a bit before the event started, then everyone gathered around, campfire style, to hear Kaley talk. She spoke about her parents’ true love, growing up and learning lessons, her mother’s fight against breast cancer, the growth of Hot Pilates Secret, and her own dreams and goals. We laughed, cried, and listened intently. Kaley’s story inspires you to become a more confident person, remind the people around you that you love them, and to truly believe in yourself.

After she had finished sharing, we had a social hour! There were lululemon employees, their friends, Kaley’s family, HPS lovers… it all spread by word of mouth. Joined by our friend, Chelsea, we totally hit up the s’mores bar. Hot and toasty marshmallows? Yes, please!

Thank you for welcoming us into your home, into your story, and allowing us to be a part of your audience. We love you! ❤

Xo,
Louise & Pam
