Alexis’s class style is unrivaled. It has an intensity that pushes every rider to work their hardest and uses a rhythmic playlist that includes R&B and hip hop, and definitely won’t be found anywhere else. She treats everyone like family and greets them by name. Some have described her classes as cathartic, purifying, and healing. They walk out embodying her messages, such as “every struggle turns to strength,” “if they beat you to the finish line, it’s because you let them get in your head,” and most importantly “everyone has a story that must be validated.”
