Owner/Facility Director

Holly Woods train her instructors to identify the learning pattern of each student they host in class. No one learns by watching, even if you have a do-it-yourself  mentality. You must learn to attempt vigorously each move tenaciously until its perfected on both sides of your body to gain the value of your instructors teachings. It’s almost insulting to expect anything less. If you want less, she will suggest another local studio. We offer job placement into our Teachers Training Program. We value the separation of the industries, it ensures our clients they will receive a hard core fitness class as directed from assessment. We  also heavily embrace the Exotic entertainment industry in a supportive manner and environment. “This business was built by an amazing teacher who just so happens to be a bad ass exotic entertainer”- Holly Woods


We also make it a point to give back to our community through our many charitable campaigns, volunteering whenever we can to raise money and awareness toward women’s mental, physical health, sexual health issues. Offering online classes, daily classes at 3 locations, and a weekly informative radio talk show, Holly Woods is a prime example of Hartford’s Elite Young Entrepreneurs, challenging the growth of affiliates and colleagues, she is a true force to be reckoned with. “We intend to be involved anyway we can as a provider of alternative fitness, says Ms Woods. We have the right to Empower each other, even if it is the encouragement to climb to the top I don’t want everything to be all about us. It’s about you”
