MBS PLAYS CUPID to Ann and Ted Stitzer

Ann Morris and Ted Stitzer weren’t looking for love when they joined MBS, but on December 8, 2012, the attractive senior couple who met at the gym, tied the knot.

“I’ve been a member for years because I love the intimacy of Michael’s,” says Ann, a former administrative assistant. Ted, a widower, loves to dance and joined the gym to expand his social life.

“I love Latin music so I started taking Marcio’s classes standing at the back of the room with the other beginners. I saw Annie in the front row and after a while, we began to talk,” the realtor says.
The friendship grew as the couple shared their love of good food and dancing and one day, in the parking lot after class, Ted gave Annie a much needed hug. “That was the turning point,” he laughs. They both credit the warm, supportive atmosphere of MBS for helping them feel welcome and comfortable.

“From the moment I joined I felt right at home because the trainers gave me an excellent orientation on the equipment and help structure my workouts,” says Ted. “It’s such a warm, friendly gym and so very much a part of our lives even now that we’re married.”
