  • Dennis Smith

    BOOTCAMP Instructor

    This is NOT your typical Boot Camp class. That is because Dennis is NOT your typical Boot Camp instructor. Not only will you get a killer workout on Thursdays at 6:30pm, but you will also get serenaded while listening to the latest R&B, Hip Hop, oh and Gospel music, too. Dennis' smile and humor are contagious and you forget you are in an aerobics class. Being overweight and suffering from Type II Diabetes HIMSELF made him want to devote his life to getting fit and getting others fit. Now he's healthier than ever and you can tell he loves what he does when you take one of his classes!
