“I can’t even begin to explain how Adrienne’s approach has made the difference for me. I have finally found a sustainable way of training that I love and makes me feel strong and good in my skin again.. It really helped me heal.” —Erin S

“I just have to tell you how obsessed I am with Adrienne’s workouts! Her creative sequencing is delicious and my back has never felt better. Craziest thing of all, I’m seeing more physical results with all those tiny lifts then I ever did with heavier lifting and her words are so uplifting. I feel strong and sexy. Thank you Adrienne, you’re a true gift to the fitness world.” — Sarah B

“I’m obsessed with Adrienne’s workouts! I especially love her body affirming language. I have some trauma with exercise & the language used in exercise culture and I always find Adrienne’s classes to be such a safe space for me to move my body intuitively and feel strong and supported. Thank you for being so mindful. I’m here for it!” — Wendy Y
