    Wow that was a great class Brian…struggling to type this with jelly arms! Did Cat’s 12 minute warm up spin before your class and it made for a fab sweaty workout – thanks!

    I love these short and to the point lifting workouts! They’re perfect for busy days or to tack on to a longer cardio/lifting session. Bonus: I can involve the kids if I don’t get up early enough in the morning to work out alone! 🤪 Thanks, Brian!

    Loved this! Love targeting body parts really great format. Even liked the half time show, lol! And always your sense of humor and coaching!
