"Laura's HIIT class has been just what I needed. I wanted to do something that would be sure to work my cardiovascular system. Her class did that and THEN SOME! I can still hear her saying "all out" at which point I learned that yes, I can go a bit faster and bit steeper, even if only for a minute. The class helped me physically and mentally…plus it was fun. All of the work paid off on a recent walking trip that likely would have been more difficult without Laura's preparation." - Pat, Thoreau Member
