Instructors

Our Instructors complete a comprehensive training process that involves learning over 300 different moves, how to sequence a routine for safety and efficiency and how to give you the best and most affective 50 minute muscle-quivering workout.  As part of their training, instructors teach weeks of mock classes to ensure they are ready to bring you the best workout in town. 

Our founder, Kate, trained for a year in New York City under several master trainers, and now brings that expertise to GPBB.  Not only will our instructors push you mentally and physically, they will always have your safety and goals in mind.
