I was invited to the Heel Thrill class by Brittney Love who has known Trecia for a number of years. My first response was girl "i can not dance" she was like girl just come on! Exotics Aerobics is amazing! Its not only a great fun workout, but it gives you a chance to learn a little dance while being sexy! Ive attended many aerobics and zumba classes and this is by far is my favorite! I'd encourage any female of any age to attend the class! The class makes you feel confident and sexy while getting a great workout in!
