What have you learned about yourself through taking classes at Z Club NY?
Prior to Z Club NY, I never made fitness a part of my adult life because I don’t consider myself an “athletic” person. Taking classes at Z Club NY has made me realize that just because I think running is torture and and I am terrible at contact sports doesn’t mean I’m not cut out for any kind of fitness. It was really just about finding a workout that is fun for me!
