    Wow! If you're looking for a fun and unique full body exercise, this is it! The instructor pushes your body to the limit and you're constantly moving throughout the entire class, making it pass by super fast. You're guaranteed to never be bored at ConBody. Plus, you're supporting a great cause!

    Love this class! I just went to their Midtown location for the first time. The class is challenging, but our instructor (Ray) made the class fly by. I was moving the ENTIRE class but genuinely enjoyed it (rare for me in a workout class)! My favorite part was the rotations - I felt like I had to push myself to the limit at every new station. Will be back for sure!

    I was so nervous going into my first ConBody workout but all my nerves went away immediately after arriving. The staff was so nice and welcoming as soon as I walked into the Midtown location. The workout was HARD - there's no getting around that - but it seriously flew by all thanks to Ray! Ray was such a great instructor. He kept things challenging but also kept us laughing throughout. The workout moves weren't too complex so anyone can do them! But you don't stop moving for the first 25-30 minutes or so so you'll definitely want to keep a water nearby. I felt so great after the workout. I definitely got sore a couple days later and had to stretch like crazy but it was totally worth it! I highly recommend ConBody if you're thinking about it and take a class with Ray if you can because you'll have a great time, an even better workout, and get a few laughs along the way!
