“Michael makes everyone feel accepted and able to progress. These are
the characteristics of good teaching…First and foremost is a sense of
humor and a relaxed attitude…another quality is the enjoyment of and
warmth with people. There is always a feeling that Michael cares because
he listens to students and is interested in them.”

DEFINING WOMEN - Women's Circuit Training Class
Tuesday evenings 5:30 - 6:30 PM
Lady's Night at Volition Studio is attended by a supportive but very focused group of four to ten women. Friendships are forged between efforts, but there's not a lot of chit-chat. Participants generally range in age from mid-thirties to mid-fifties. A great variety of exercise stations: dumb bells, cable machine, Pilates table, cardio step-ups make for an intense hour of two-minute sets. The cost is $20 per session or a 5-class card for $90 (with 10 week expiration).
MAN UP! - Men's Circuit Training Class
Monday evenings 6:00 - 7:00 PM
The guys are more talkative when they sweat than the women at Volition Studio. Ribald humor and snappy come backs punctuate the sound of weights clanking. The jokes lessen by the second half as the men catch their breath. Balance exercises and yoga postures stretch skill and limbs between muscular demands. The cost is $20 per session or a 5-class card for $90 (with 10 week expiration).
