THE WORKOUT:

Body Sculpting is a class that's focused on the entire body. It starts with a light warm-up before launching into the exercises, which are grouped into sets. You’ll work on your upper body with light weights, lifting in rhythm to the music, to test your biceps, triceps, and shoulders over and over again, moving quickly and with little rest in between. More upper body and chest exercises continue with a resistance band wrapped around a barre. Not leaving any muscle groups behind, Dee keeps you going as you move into the lower body portion of the class, a variety of kicks and squats to tone up those glutes and legs. Picking it up a notch more, an exercise band is wrapped around your feet, and you step up, down, and across the room, all the while with your legs apart and feet stable. Finally, you’ll blast through a core workout of bicycle crunches, sit-ups, planks, and more. Expect to be sore the next day, so stretch, stretch, stretch!

THE SPACE:

Located in the heart of  uptown Oakland, Truve is a beautifully decorated and modern space, and at 7,200 sq ft. it's got plenty of room for you to get your sweat on. There's a welcome area where you walk in, a street-facing sunlit studio in the front, a weight room in the main hall, a pilates studio off to the side, and multiple massage rooms. Plus, the bathrooms and showers are in the back — clean and fully stocked for freshening up after class.
