Fortify Your Frame
…is not an aerobic class with loud music
(You can't hear me correct technique over music).

…is not a class where the instructor “works out”
(I pride myself on the personal attention I provide to all the participants).



  • Don't be intimidated by perfect figured instructors (I do not have a "perfect" figure)...

  • Don't be intimidated by the loud music (there is no music)...   
  • Don't be intimidated by others (you progress at your own pace)...   

  • Don't worry, you will start at your current level of ability and progress from there.
