    Two of the most genuine and amazing people on youtube without a doubt. Thank you so much for everything you do, you have changed the lives of so many it’s unbelievable.

  2. You are amazing! Thank you for your openness and take the time you need to take care of yourself. You give your audience so much and I hope you are feeling better soon.

  3. What I love about FB is you guys! The workouts of fun and entertaining, even if I’ve done them over and over again. The goal that you have always pushed is to be safe and healthy– and I hope that both of you can do that successfully. I wish you all the best!

    You and your videos have helped me and my own personal mental health struggles. Last December I was having daily panic attacks and constant anxiety. I re-started doing videos daily, just to get up and moving. Now, I haven’t had a panic attack in months and I started taking more time for myself, instead of focusing solely on what was going wrong in my life. I cannot thank you enough!

  6. Stay strong Kelly and Daniel!! You guys have helped out millions of people including myself. Thank you for all your energy but your whole community is here to support you and root you on 😀 Can’t wait for the storm!!

  7. So much love and support flowing your way. You’ve given so much of yourselves over these many years. Your health, happiness, and continued success is all I hope for for you both. We’ve got your back and will be eagerly awaiting your return.

  8. Kelli, Daniel you guys and the work that you do mean so much to me. I am glad you are prioritizing your own health. You have helped so many of us with ours. Hope that knowing the fitness blender community is behind you helps a little bit with the road ahead.

  9. It’ s good to see you, guys. I’ve been missing. Really! Always waiting for a new video every Monday. Kelli, sorry to see you in this shape. You are a strong independent beautiful person. Don’t forget how much strenght you have inside. We all have deal with our demons. You both gave me power to keep going when I was dying emotionally. When I was watching your story I was crying with you. You are special!!! Never doubt it.

    You’ve helped me in more ways than you’ll ever know. I’m in the army and struggled with weight standards. You saved my career. Twice. And gave me a way to do it healthy. I’m proud of you for taking the time to focus on yourself and your health. You’re a leader, and you cant lead if you don’t take care of yourself. Thoughts and prayers!

  11. Keli I am speaking health into your life and life into your bones! It is well with you physically spiritually and emotionally! We love you and we know you will be back like you never left. Your condition has no authority over your body 🙂

    Kelli, you won’t BE the storm. You ARE the storm. Still.

    At 30 years old, i was in the best shape of my life. Running half marathons, training for my black belt, and doing my FB HIIT workouts. But a whirlwind and lifetime of stress broke loose, and I developed Fibromyalgia. I quickly went from running 8-10 miles, to not being able to walk. After a year of being housebound, I slowly started to rebuild. It’s 2 years now, and I just broke my 11 mile mark for weekly distance run and reincorporated the FB HIIT workouts. I never stopped being a force, I just had to put my fight somewhere else for a time and it’s brought me back stronger and with more tools to grow in my fitness journey.

    It’s definitely a traumatic thing to lose control of your body with no idea of timelines or answers. But you haven’t changed in terms of the storm you are. It takes just as much strength to get through a workout as it does to push through the pain of illness.

    If you don’t look after yourselves, you can’t look after us. It’s ok to hit the pause button, breathe and re-evaluate. Go and heal. No one here is going anywhere I assure you x

    You guys have been my rocks throughout my eating disorder. I wish you nothing but the best and hope all goes well along the way to recovery. You two are lovely, strong people and I am so proud to be a part of this community. Take all the time you need, we will be hear cheering you on and supporting you. Taking care of yourself is so important, I’ve also had to learn that the hard way. I wish you a speedy recovery Kelli from the bottom of my heart! Relax, put yourself first, you’ve got this! We love you!

  16. Big virtual hug to you both! I have no questions, just a plea, please please please I beg you take a longer break, take 6 months off if you can, trust me Kelli, you have built a tremendous library of workout videos over 9 years, your breaks will never affect the workout schedule of your audience. I’ve been with you 7 years and I know what I’m talking about. You have taken breaks before and it never stopped me. Please my dears take as long a break as you need and take good care of yourselves. We could figure out a way for you to not miss working too much, maybe social media updates you could check to see people’s progress? I’ll do jump squats for you Kelli! I shouldn’t, knee problem, but sometimes can’t resist them! It will be fine, just be fine yourselves first please! Much love. -Mariam
