    Gale, Your kickboxing class was AMAZING!!! You have a fantastic amount of energy and keep the class moving at a great pace. I cant believe I survived it! You definatlly whooped my butt into shape after slacking for so long! I cant wait to come back! I love the way you can modify the movements to acomidate everyone. Thi...s is not a one size fits all class, and I love it! Thanks for opening the door for me to check it out!- Amber Halin, Lonsdale

    Gale has worked with me for about 3 years now and she is wonderful. She worked with me when I was first starting out (very overweight), giving me encouragement, a great routine, and solid advice. Since then I have lost 45 pounds! Gale has helped modify my routine when I was having medical issues as well. I would recommend her to anybody, any level.
