Since I joined your Stomach Flattening class, my body improved, and the pain disappeared so that I don't need medication. I have more energy and flexibility, a stronger back and toned stomach muscles.

    I have tried gyms, cardio machines and different fitness classes and never got the workout or the results that I get from this cardio-kickboxing class. Thanks, Doug.
