When I first walked into Black Tiger Fitness Studio I thought I didn't belong there.  Everyone in the class was so toned and fit - and I was a dedicated couch potato.  But I decided I had come this far and I should at least try one lesson and see how it went. 

That first lesson was tough.  I pushed myself, I sweated, I huffed, I puffed, I stretched and strained.  And then Vince said, "Okay, that was a good warm up!  Let's start our work out." 

Needless to say, I was a little sore after that first workout.  But I could tell Vince's workouts were effective so I went back for a second workout and a third and a fourth.  After about two weeks I found I was less sore and more toned.  After a month I was seeing curves I hadn't seen in years.  After two months I realized that, at age 41, I was in better shape than I had been in my entire life.  That is no exaggeration.  Vince knows what he's doing.

In addition to getting me into good physical shape, I also discovered that kick boxing really gets rid of stress.  After my workouts I'm more relaxed and my family says I'm funnier. 

I'm so glad I went into Black Tiger Fitness Studio that first day and that I kept going back.  Best decision I've made in a long time.
