 Mabinti is so talented and has so much energy. This is the highlight of my week every week!!!  --Karen


I am so blessed to have found this class.  I needed something to motivate me to get active again & socialize more.  Everyone in class is so nice and encouraging and I love the motivation and support.  I like the little routines too. It helps me remember the moves and feel like I'm really advancing. -- Candice


I tried a bunch of gyms and other places looking for a more fun workout.  This is the most fun class I've ever taken.  My favorite part is that even on days I am tempted to crash after work this class rejuvenates me.  Plus, the  warm ups and cool downs are as spectacular as the workout part of the class.     -- Alyssa
