“Her classes are unreal, the energy and music are my favorite. She’s hardcore and pumps you up, pushes you to your potential, is very inspirational, and is just a badass! She is active in the community and shows her NOLA pride in all aspects of her job at Romney. Hands down best instructor in the city!!!” —Meredith

“Honestly, there is no better way to start and end the week. When you enter the studio with Kat and clip in you know there is a real journey ahead of you. One filled with sweat, gainz, words to live by, and a team cheering you on to intoxicating beats. As we cool down, Kat always shares a personal story of growth with the group that motivates me to continue to make small changes and to consistently express gratitude. I’m grateful for my dope ride guide in NOLA!” —Michael

“Kat works hard before class preparing and catering to her classes to the participants and shows an amazingly caring attitude towards her clients on top of making fitness fun!” —Andrew

“Her energy is outstanding and she is so motivating. She forms personal relationships with people in her class. She’s inspiring and such a go-getter.” —Lexie

Jay Morgan, Zone Fit NOLA

“Real nice guy that makes sure you are getting the most out of a workout and you have good form (without hovering over you) Keeps the workouts fresh yet challenging too.” —Ben

“Jay pays attention to detail, form, and makes a personal connection with all his clients.” —Jill

“Jay is very detailed and truly cares about your health. My sister and I had only taken 3 of his classes and he reached out to us via email to ask us if we were okay with a change of schedule. We were not members and he was concerned about accommodating us. He tracks your progress on paper and is always encouraging you to push further. The simplest thing as an increase in weight or moving your feet out further with TRX Jay sees and compliments you on pushing harder. He’s a great motivator and extremely accommodating. He’s concerned about your overall health too. No class can start or end without an extensive stretching and warm-up session. He is always checking in and asking about injuries. I’d highly recommend this instructor to everyone. His facility is also very nice, clean and well kept. —Victoria

“J is an awesome instructor. He helps you get the right form for your exercises and is extremely patient with the class.” —Anonymous
