Michelle Pound, Studio Lagree – Forest Hill Village

Michelle brings the fire to every class. She’s committed to her craft, has killer playlists, thoroughly shows you how to execute every move, and keeps you laughing the whole class with her sass and a great sense of humor. She’s truly unique to every other instructor I’ve had and I hope she never changes! —Marko 

“Michelle’s classes are always fun, upbeat, challenging and inspiring. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable about the Lagree Method she makes everyone who comes to her class feel welcome. I always leave feeling invigorated and like I accomplished something and has helped me grow with my fitness goals. I look forward to her class each week!” —Abby

“Michelle’s class is great. As a beginner, she took the time to walk me through the moves so I didn’t feel out of place.” —Kevin 

“Without fail, she always brings the best energy and attitude to class. She pushes you to your limits and helps you make the most of your workout. I so look forward to her class each week and know I’m going to be sore for the rest of the week. She is the definition of a girl boss.” —Kim

Steve Miranda, Studio KO – King Street West and Quad – Downtown 

“Steve always bring the energy! I have never done a boxing or spin class with him where I haven’t felt motivated by his encouragement and amazing music! He is always challenging and I always leave feeling accomplished.” —Lisa

“Steve is by far the best instructor. He’s sweet and kind yet motivating and inspiring. He pushes me to my very limit but yet, I always go back to his classes. I follow him from studio to studio even when it’s at 6am (won’t wake up to go to anyone else’s classes)! Thanks for being the best, Steve.” —Anne
