I tried BBB at the end of last summer and I wished I had heard about it earlier. I had such a great time! The class was fun, encouraging, the views amazing and at the end I had the feeling I could take on the world. I am what some people call a ""gym rat"" and as such I was skeptical about the intensity (since I have been disapointed by many other 'new workouts') I was pleasantly surprised! The class was tough but manageable for different fittness because Ariane encourages pushing to your own limit. I think every Newyorker (and visitor) ought to try at least one class!
