Rush Hour - Cycle Class


This class is taught by:

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.)

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.”

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!”

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.
 
 

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!”

Regan Barrett

“Fusion is a true representation of “every woman” - we are full of amazing, talented, smart, funny, beautiful women and I love being a part of it!”
 
A graduate of our Weight Loss Boot Camp years ago, Regan began assisting with WLBC and coaching her own AmpCamp sessions as a dedication to sharing the skills she learned with other women. Clients appreciate her “been there, done that” attitude - she loves sharing her own story as well as knowing what it takes to get the job done - “I find my best me during those early morning camp workouts!” Regan loves planning her Amp & Fusion Fly classes by finding motivating, new music (“it creates the mood”) to inspire and keep up the high energy she brings to the room.
