    I've taken classes fErom Barbara for over 5years. Whether it is cardio, basics , strength & toning, or Zumba,every class is fun, intense and meets its goal. Attention to detail is given to all areas including real interaction with the class, change up of tempos to keep things interesting, not to mention great music. You walk away with a full workout. Time passes quickly in Barbara's classes, leaving you wanting to come back for more!

    It's been a while since I've been to the gym and worked out, but Barb made me excited to be in the class. I need to be motivated and Barb's words of encouragement were exactly what I needed! Thanks Barb :) ML

    I'm taking Barb's silver sneakers class at the Freestone rec center. Although I'm handicapped and so I can't do all the movements her attitude motivates me to do more than I thought I could. Her choice of music makes you want to sing along and her laughter makes you smile. Thank you Barb.

    I have taken a few of Barbs classes-Zumba, Back to Basics, and Body Pump. She is a tough instructor but a fun one! She will definitely push you to your max and help you accomplish your goals. I would suggest anyone who is really wanting to put forth the effort to get results take Barb's class-she will get you there!
