Hustle HIIT - wear sneakers


This class is taught by:

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!”

Jenny Muntzel

“I love being surrounded by people so passionate about working hard and reaching their goals at Fusion.”
 
Jenny’s sweet demeanor is all business as soon as the music starts - her classes are full of fun sequences that keep the focus on concentration and form rather than how hard hearts are beating and sweat is dripping. True to our intense Fusion style, she loves “to see a room full of women working their butt’s off,” and is continually encouraged by the dedication of clients. “Barre brings me back to my days of dance,” she says, and feels grateful for her days of endurance training and that now her body is able to be challenged on a regular basis. Fitness to her is “such an amazing gift,” and she is happy to be able to share it with clients and the Fusion family.

Shauna Pierce

“I love the contagious atmosphere of Fusion - everyone coming to work their bodies to the max!”
 
Shauna’s passion for leading a class full of clients stems from her years as a middle school teacher - helping people change their outlooks from negative to positive is what inspires her most. Shauna’s energy spreads throughout the room and she loves seeing clients’ everyday dedication to bettering themselves. From her killer music (she loves a good Throwback Thursday full of old school R&B) to her beautiful posture & form, Shauna’s classes will challenge your body and strengthen your confidence as you keep up with her creative moves.
 
 

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!”.

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!"

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.”

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!”

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.”
