Attended my first ever workshop today in Fargo! Being new to the industry I was nervous but your instructor Christine was beyond amazing! I have been super impressed with your customer service every time I call and now after today I can't not wait to further my education with many more of your workshops!


I work in a small club and we don't have the space for group classes so a group fitness instructor has never been a goal - but after working with Christine and the group today I look forward to getting that certification first chance I get!
