  • It is great to walk in and have your work out done in 30 min. The circuits keep u constantly moving and love to see my heart rate, calories burned up on tv screen. Friendly staff that make sure u are getting the most out of your workout. Dont worry if u haven't kick boxed before, they ease u into it with one-on-one coaching. I love it!
