You’ll see her singing, laughing, and freely expressing as she leads the room with confidence and power. And while Dionne commands the crowd with strength, cracking jokes and putting on one helluva show, this firecracker has a real grounded approach too. Dionne has got your back with a controlled intensity and an absolute determination to helping you find your best self. Expect tears of joy when it’s over. Dionne will deliver a kick-ass, non-stop workout that’s still got you laughing and singing the whole time.

THE BUTT-RESS
 
Check your inhibitions at the door. Juli Lawless -- for realz, "Lawless" is her birth name -- is the perfect instructor to coach you through a heart-pounding, ass-kicking workout. Juli has been teaching fitness since 2008 and has developed a die-hard following in D.C.’s fitness and dance scenes. And when Juli's not teaching fitness and pounding the pavement like a maniac, she's kicking ass and taking names at her full-time job as a rocket scientist (for serious, yo, she is a f*cking aerospace engineer). Her fun-loving, feel-good attitude is totally contagious. But don’t be fooled by her welcoming energy and approachable aura. When this woman means business, she is one tough chick. She’ll deliver a hot, hot, hot workout and help coach you through wild, high-intensity sprints with a can-do ’tude.
