“CF studio is a place where residents and visitors can come for a positive, energetic, and unique class experience. Moving, sweating, smiling and forgetting about the rest of life’s challenges for one hour can help people feel great, and it is our goal to provide that outlet for our clients.”
Fitness Idol: NO question, Jack LaLanne. He dedicated his life to overall wellness, overcame obstacles, and stayed motivated with a smile. Jack could do 1,033 push-ups in 23 minutes…at the age of 42!!
What you love most about teaching: The ability to make up to 40 people at one time feel better about themselves in a matter of an hour is the best feeling anyone could ask for.
