I took Liana's TurboKick and Zumba classes for about a year. She is a fantastic instructor that gives great energy, making the class participants more motivated to give 100% during the workouts. What takes Liana from being a great to spectacular instructor is how she teaches. She articulates each move verbally and physically with such precision that any level of fitness can understand and follow to get the ultimate workout. She is a person that doesn't show you how to change your lifestyle with exercise, but more of a motivation to want to change your lifestyle.

I had the pleasure of private and group at home classes with Liana and they were just what we wanted. She was able to quickly assess each one's individual abilities and adapt exercises to our needs. We got a personalized, yet thorough workout! I have been to Zumba classes where I had no clue what was going on, but Liana provides clear instructions and keeps everyone involved.

Liana will be sorely missed at Platinum gym. I have been taking turbo kick from her for at least a year and she is amazing! She gets to know each of us and offers great options for many different levels of fitness. I totally agree with Josh- she works you hard and yet you come away from her classes smiling. We will miss you Liana!

Liana is a very dedicated fitness instructor. She is always willing to help patrons out with any questions that they have and makes herself available to the best of her ability. When taking her classes, I most enjoy her knowledge of fitness, which she shares with the class, as well as her encouragement. It is easy to see Liana's passion for fitness; her enthusiasm is contagious.

I have felt lost and frustrated in group fitness classes before, but that is never the case in Liana's classes. She keeps it active and engaging, so I'm never confused, but also never bored. Before long, I find myself dripping with sweat with a huge smile on my face. Liana really makes a personal conection with the people that attend her class. She's terrific!

I have taken Liana's Turbo Kick classes at Platinum Fitness and find her to be an exceptional instructor. The choreography she uses is "dancy" and really fun and she is always on time to the music and keeping you informed of the next moves before they happen. I love to dance so she fills my needs perfectly and helps me to move to the music that much better. I will really miss her workouts and there is nothing like it to fill the void. Thanks Liana and Good Luck with the wedding and your new life in San Diego!

Liana is an inspiration for me—look at her six-pack! She is full of energy and always encourages you to do more. Her class is also lots of fun-- great music and choreography. I get a blast in her class and easily burn tons of calories. Want to be fit? Her class is a great solution!

I have been going to Liana's Zumba classes for quite some time now and have nothing but awesome things to say about it. Her classes are lively and upbeat and I love the toning that she adds to class each week. She greats you when you walk in and makes sure to explain all the different modifications that you can use in class to make sure you are getting the workout you want to achieve. With her help, I have managed to keep off 30 pounds during my college career and have fun doing it. Thanks, Liana! You will be missed here in Tucson!
