Once again Nico delivers. He offers a fresh, new approach to group classes incorporating the best of both the Pilates world and the Group Fitness class. I love the way the focus of Pilates comes together with the high energy of group fitness. I will be using the new ideas I learned in class this week. Thanks Nico, for inspiring the world to fitness. You do it very well!! I know I will be seeing you as a presenter again.
Awesome presentation. I like his teaching style as well
Enjoyed the mix of group fitness along with Pilates/ personal training. Even I could keep up with the count!
MY FAVORITE SESSION - bring him back for more!
Great new moves that I have already implemented with clients.
I learned a lot and completely enjoyed this session. He had some great ideas for combining Pilates and Group Fitness that I can use. Great job! Great presenter as well.
