Instructor Reviews

“If you want to get a good workout but at the same time learn techniques and have a good time come here! I love how the trainers push you to the limit (in a good way) and make you improve your skills and stamina. Great class variety, not your regular gym.” – Jennifer R. San Antonio, TX

“This place is amazing, from the staff to the instructors! Everyone here is super friendly and ready to help you out with anything you need. The instructors are no joke, and it doesn’t matter if you’re 50 or 13 or if you’re a women or a man. The instructors will push you to your limit and wont let you quit, they truly believe in what they teach. I never thought I could do certain workouts like I do now but everyone here is so encouraging and this place helps you to see the importance of fitness. I love it! I highly recommend this place!” – Neena R. Pleasanton, TX
