Level 3 Trainer qualified Gonzalo loves the team spirit that comes wth our 30 minute sessions. If he's taking yours, ask him to put on the dance tracks - he's an acclaimed Salsa dancer and won't be shy to demo a few moves and incorprate them into his circuits.


After three weeks my jeans felt looser. After four, friends asked, "Wow, what have you been doing?"
