    Jen’s workout is a killer and hurts so good, but the camera shots in this workout were irritating. Too many close ups of people’s faces, and not enough shots of the actual body movements. There were a few times I wasn’t sure what the moves were and couldn’t see what I was supposed to be doing until the set was almost over. Maybe this should be labeled as an Accelerated class instead of Mixed, if the expectation was supposed to be that viewers are already familiar with the moves.

    Jen’s workouts give you the feeling of really having accomplished something on those minutes of class. Intense and fun, the perfect combination!

    This was an intense workout, but Jen’s funny antidotes made the class really fun! The sound of my own laughter allowed me to push myself harder despite the shaking. Thank you Jen.

    I very much enjoyed this class!! However, I have never done Barre classes so it was difficult for me to understand what I was supposed to do at times the camera was not pointed at the girls doing the exercises. So, if possible in the future, when the teacher is explaining the exercise, it would be easier to point the camera on the girls doing the exercise rather than the teacher explaining it. Maybe that’s just me and my lack of knowledge, but besides that, this was great!
