Yelp user janice l.shares, “Alena is so much fun and energetic. Her routines are easy to learn yet exciting moves. She keeps the group rockin & rollin for all types of gym rats. If you haven’t tried Alena, you don’t know what you’re missing. Alena’s special ingredient is her personality which shines through during the entire class. Alena (combined with Zumba) is what makes exercise fun!”

Yelp user Maia B. says, “I really love Alena’s class!! The music is awesome and Alena is really fun and energetic! Who knew working out could be so much fun? If you get frustrated the first couple times you go, don’t give up! I was a little discouraged the first time I went, since I didn’t know the moves and it was a bit challenging, but I am so glad I went back because it just gets better every time!”
