Drenched


This class is taught by:

Joscelyn Gann

“The Fusion community is such a rare find - our environment of support, encouragement and kindness is so incredibly special and has made my life so much richer.”
 
Hugely passionate about helping others find their own strength from the years she has spent building her own, Jos brings her heart and soul to every class and client. Her dedicating energy in classes and our AmpCamp program radiates her love of fitness as a way to challenge ourselves, be stronger than yesterday, and push past our self-made limitations. AmpCamp coaching close to her heart, she teaches clients about the importance of pushing through struggles - whatever they may be - coming out on the other side, she says, exposes our weaknesses, rips open battles scars we need to heal and forces us to be the very strongest that we can be. Jos stresses the importance of being grateful each day for our healthy bodies by taking care of them through fitness, nutrition, and self appreciation. “I firmly believe the strength and discipline cultivated in our studios translates to real life growth - fitness is about so much more than skinny jeans or a number on the scale.”

Liz Birch

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you - so keep pushing farther!”
 
From her famous “you chose to be here, now work hard!” prompts during class, to her loud & fun music and unique combinations - Liz brings her energy each time she steps in the studio to help clients work at their top level. As a mother of five girls she strives to provide a healthy example of nutrition and fitness - and how the power of physical activity creates a balance in our minds and bodies to live our best lives. “In my wildest dreams I never thought I would have 5 girls - raising them to be strong, healthy, independent and compassionate women - that is a beautiful challenge!”

Darby Brender

“Everyone deserves to look and feel their best - we’ve only got one body and it’s so important to treat it with respect and kindness.”
 
The creator and owner of our amazing Fusion community, Darby still loves teaching and taking classes every day. Building her own mix of cardio and unique toning moves to get the job done in just one hour, Darby still loves to pull out ‘old school Fusion’ in some of her classes to seriously focus on the core and creating long, lean muscle tone. Known for her loud, wild music and cool moves in the studio, Darby inspires clients to be healthier and better versions of themselves, focusing on how good it feels to move our bodies and get stronger with each class. “If we don’t challenge ourselves, we don’t change - Fusion is all about pushing past our comfort zones to see what lies beyond the walls we’ve built and are scared to climb over. That’s where our full potential gets sparked!”

Becca Parisi

“I love the fast paced, high intensity but very intentionally planned classes with no wasted time - the atmosphere is so fun and encouraging.”
 
A self-professed “cardio junkie,” Becca loves to bring the energy and get clients moving. “I like to jump in, get super sweaty, heart pounding, high intensity, energetic, fast paced, and “get it done” in one hour,” she says, and she’s not exaggerating. Clients love how her fitness fanatic side is rounded out with her positive attitude, always willing to stay and chat, sharing her continuing search for self acceptance and love that we are all searching for. “We aren’t defined by what we do (accomplishes or failures), by what we have or don’t have, or what others think about us. Fusion is full of encouragement to push ourselves further than we normally would - such a positive environment for challenge and growth!”

Jodie Schnakenberg

“The community aspect of Fusion is far greater than anything I’ve experienced in this city - we support each other and pick each other up if we falter.”
 
Her boisterous & confident presence as an instructor comes from her years as a high school teacher - and we’re not quite sure where her other amazing energy comes from. Bringing the Pound workout to KC, she started with Fusion (“my original #poundposse”), and teaches at other studios throughout the city. Pound’s unique brand of “rock out workout” has clients use drumsticks to literally rock out (“I do not workout without music because that is simply blasphemy”), while they up their cardio endurance and build muscle tone. Jodie’s excitement over teaching a new track is infectious, and the hour flies by as she sings along, motivates clients to let loose and enjoy, and if we’re lucky, sometimes even throws in a few dance moves. “Fitness is a lifestyle, not a phase,” she explains, and her carefree passion of teaching Pound class never ceases to impress (the experience or the soreness the next day.)

Stephanie Eppler

“I love to watch a client that has walked into class looking tired, stressed and overwhelmed - leave with a new sense of self, positive attitude and feeling of accomplishment.”

Stephanie began dancing as a young girl - studying in a unique opportunity at age 16 began her professional career and lifelong love of ballet and fitness. Thriving on the structure, challenge and focus of being at the barre, Stephanie brings her engrained discipline to each class she teaches. “Fusion has been my happy place since the day I started after the birth of my second daughter - where I could come for an hour to challenge myself, accomplish a goal, and get away from outside pressures,” she says. Loving our intense, high energy style at Fusion as a client for years, she began as an instructor knowing each class is “so challenging you must be able to smile and laugh a bit while you’re doing it - very similar to my outlook on life.”

 

Francie Bradley

“No matter how blah I feel walking into the studio, within the first 5 minutes of class it’s as if my brain has been completely cleared of all negativity - Fusion is my therapy.”
 
“After having two kids I needed something to kick my body into gear, and I found it at Fusion,” she says, loving the opportunity every day to spread that same benefits to clients. Francie’s sense of humor creates a fun and confident environment to lead clients through challenging and creative sequences - she operates at top speed and enjoys motivating clients to push themselves harder than they think possible. “Not a day goes by that I leave the studio without having had a client impact my life in a positive way - Fusion is an adrenaline rush that sticks with you for the rest of the day.”
