Fusion Mix - shoes optional


This class is taught by:

Amy Hodes

“To me, there’s nothing more exciting or gratifying than being a part of the learning process that helps others grow and become better.”
 
With a passion for fitness and love of instructing from her years as a high school teacher, Amy brings her skills to every class she comes bouncing into. Whether she’s cracking jokes or telling clients to drop lower or jump higher, Amy’s huge personality entertains and challenges through her fun moves and love of Fusion. “Being a part of a community of strong, supportive, inspiring women who truly want to see other succeed is the best! It’s rare and it happens every damn day at Fusion,” she says, and knows what happiness she finds in helping people learn new skills or break new barriers. “To see the sparkle in someone’s eye when they grasp a new concept - being a part of the learning process is so special because I get to see people growing, their confidence increasing and watch them get stronger mentally and physically - I just love it.”

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 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.
 
 

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.”

 

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!”

Sadie Durbin

“On our mats, we’re all working towards the same goal of improving ourselves so we can better contribute to our families, jobs and communities… it’s so much more than just a workout.”
 
A powerhouse not to be taken lightly, Sadie rocks our studios with her tough coaching and even tougher moves - but clients love a ‘Sadie class’ to strengthen more than just their bodies. “The passion, positivity, and clarity I gain from our studios is unmatchable and makes me thrive,” she says, “I couldn’t imagine my life without this community of women who support each other without judgment.” Following her son’s diagnosis of leukemia, she witnessed the full effect of such a supportive community - and knows our clients come to Fusion not only to get the best workout in KC, but as an addition to, and to gain encouragement for, their lives.
 
 
Cardio, Fusion, Barre Intensity, and a touch of bootcamp are combined into this power hour workout. Fusion Mix will keep your muscles guessing and your heart rate up for a sweat wrenching, sculpting session!
