I joined Zen and Pow a few short months ago after a trial period. I had not done much for myself in terms of exercising or stress relief in quite a long time.. During that period, I had lost some strength and quite a bit of flexibility, along with adding some unwanted pounds. Regular gyms used to intimidate me for those reasons, but at Zen and Pow, I don’t feel like I cannot do something. All of the instructors are so motivating. They also do an amazing job of offering different ways to do certain exercises or moves that do not make me feel incompetent or embarrassed. I can leave a class here and feel good about the work I did for myself because of how the instructors make me feel and how they design their classes and offer ways for all to participate- no matter what level you are at. Kendra, in particular, was really helpful in Bootcamp when I could not do the burpies. She kindly and discreetly offered a solution that kept me moving. All of the instructors have been so helpful, but this one stuck out to me this week as I can be really hard on myself, and it has been a stressful week. I felt proud of myself when I left. I love the personalized way these classes feel!
