  • What brought me in originally was that a new round begins every 3 minutes so you can go for a class at any time, which works well when you are a working mom. The workouts are very effective and the workouts are different every single day. On top of all of that, the trainers are all great. It does not matter whether you are a beginner or advanced, or what shape you are in; these workouts are for everyone!
