A: Well I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it blew me away. I was lost during the class but became hooked.

A: I felt I had a place to not only challenge myself but be a part of something more than just a member of a gym.
Q: What makes this workout different from other exercises you have experienced?
A: I feel and see the effects of my workouts with such simple small moves in all sorts of patterns.

A: Community. I meet so many different and interesting people. Everyone brings something to the table.
Q: Is there anything you would like to share with potential new clients about your experience at AUXO Fitness?
A: It will be my 3rd year at AUXO. Initially, I never thought I could do a second class much less reach 500. This group has encouraged me from day one with their sincerity, enthusiasm, and knowledge that I, too, can do this!
Q: Any helpful tips for those who are considering trying Barre, but are nervous?
A: We have all been there in that first class. Stick with it, and you won’t regret it. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
