Cardio Core - wear sneakers


This class is taught by:

Marisa Raimo

As a classroom teacher, Marisa knows that a positive attitude and words of encouragement are the keys to bringing out the best in her students. As a Fusion instructor, she uses this knowledge and experience to inspire & motivate clients to give 100% effort in their workouts. “I love being able to help clients push themselves to achieve goals they never thought they could reach. My motivation as an instructor is seeing clients grow stronger, healthier, and happier every time they walk out of those studio doors.” Marisa’s love (and addiction) for Fusion started as a client, which has lead her to grow in that passion even more now as an instructor. “I have never found a workout quite like Fusion. It is tough, fast-paced, and continues to challenge me even after years of going. Each class is so unique and you can be guaranteed that you will never have the same workout twice! One of the many reasons Fusion is so effective is the muscle burnout. I love being able to feel all of my hard work the next day!”. Marisa’s classes are full of energy and tough-love. You can be guaranteed that you will push yourself harder than the day before. “Training to become an instructor has only made me appreciate Fusion even more, which I did not think was possible! I am always so excited to plan each class in order to make it the most effective, challenging, and fun for our clients!”.

Leeze Gaudreau

“I love the sisterhood among instructors, staff & clients - there is honestly no better high than teaching a Fusion class.”
 
Leeze’s enthusiasm creates high energy classes set to the beat of the music and always a great combination of intense cardio with hard core toning. Radiating the positive vibes of the studio, you can always catch her smiling and giving individual attention to clients during class - making each person known and motivated. A client for many years gaining a longer and leaner physique, she couldn’t wait to offer her experiences to other women. “We’ve got one hour to ourselves when we get away from outside life...I make it worth it each time a client gives me that time!”

Erica Creger

“I love how strong I feel punching, kicking, and sweating with a bunch of bad a$$ women!”
 
Erica is known for her intense, push-you-past-your-limits cardio classes - and she loves every minute of it. “There’s never been a time when I’ve walked out of the studio not feeling better than when I’d walked in - the energy, positivity, and overall awesomeness of our clients is contagious!” Whether its helping a newbie set-up for class or persuading a regular to jump higher or faster, Erica is ever-present and zips throughout the room busting out burpees right next to clients to keep them going. “I absolutely love our environment here of kindness, acceptance, and total support. It pushes me to want to be my best every single day.”

Katie Hirleman

“There is a unique story to everyone who walks in our doors, and I love being a part of their journeys toward health.”
 
Katie’s sweet smile quickly turns to business in her tough, well planned sequences of working one body part to the next. With loud, fun music, her classes inspire each client to listen to their own bodies and push past their perceived comfort zones. She loves catering to the unique personalities and fitness levels of clients who each come to work their hardest, appreciating the community of support that brings it all together. Her biggest challenge yet? Motherhood: “It has exposed my weaknesses, my selfishness, my desire for controlling my own little world and challenged me to change for the better. We never know we can do something until we try - and we never become stronger unless we rise to the challenge.”

Liz Wallace

“I love pumping up the clients through music and words, and enjoy the feeling that I am responsible for driving the energy during class.”
 
After the birth of her second child, Liz fell in love with Fusion’s difficult, high energy classes on her search for the most effective workout in KC. “Fusion taught me you have to push yourself out of your comfort zones to create change,” she says, and now loves the responsibility she feels for bringing clients to their full potential. Her favorite class, Fusion Mix, brings the best of intense toning mixed with cardio moves to spike the heart rate and burn calories - through her music and coaching tough combos she hopes to push clients to be their best, happiest selves.
 
 

Britt Cali

Growing up being active was always part of Britt’s lifestyle. Running track and cross country in high school and continuing to work out in college, staying healthy was always a high priority to her. When she graduated from Mizzou in 2013 and moved home to Kansas City, she completed some half marathons and found Fusion. She was instantly hooked! Fusion toned muscles in a way that running just didn’t. That along with the people, the music, the energy at the studios kept Britt coming back for more. Working full time at her family’s business required Britt to find a workout that that was fast/effective and that’s exactly why she feels fusion is the best method there is in KC. Britt's classes are so fun you will get lost in the workout and have an amazing power hour!

A quote from Britt. "The main reason I love fusion so much is that even after being a client here for 4 + years, the classes STILL kick my butt. Every time. I have never left one fusion class and thought “oh that was easy.” That’s why I love this place. It’s constantly changing/challenging me to push past my comfort zone and still leaves my muscles sore, week after week. I truly feel Fusion has made me the best version of myself and I can’t wait to give that feeling back to clients as an instructor!"

In it to win it! This 45-minute class leads off with 30 minutes of heart pumping bikini bootcamp and wraps with 15 minutes of total ab dedication. The full body workout without taking a full hour.
