Violet and 2 background exercisers performs the workout. (one performs all exercises in modified form for beginners) The set is open and spacious, with brick walls-very industrial looking.

Anyone can perform this workout. Violet's instructions are clear and easy to follow. The cardio portions are athletic in nature, nothing too dancy. You'll see kicks, hamstring curls, high knees, fast feet, small jumps, rocks side to side, mambo jumps and step touches. The strength training intermixes traditional moves with functional ones. You'll challenge your balance and really tighten the entire core. Some moves are more challenging so beginners may want to watch the modifier. No body part is left untouched--you'll hit everything with multifaceted moves. The cooldown is yoga inspired, very gentle.
