It was and is such a good time. I dont really like goin to the gym or even working out for that matter but the class is so fun n interactive the time flies and it doesnt seem like such a mundane process. Every class is structured difderently so u always get a new or different arrangement of a workout. Denice is Awesome! Definitely recommend...
