Belly2Abs hosts an inspiring and energetic environment for women of all ages and skill sets to relax and recharge. At the hip-shaking helm of Belly2Abs is Adriana Echeverri, the globetrotting instructor and inspirational poetess. After completing teaching stints in Europe and the Caribbean, the 20-plus-year dancing dynamo founded Belly2Abs to help others uncover their own Mata Haris. The 60-minute Belly2Abs fitness class is divided into three segments: a warm-up, a targeted workout with weights and waist trimmer, and a final self-confidence builder. Aspiring acrobats will appreciate the Pole Fitness classes, which start with an introductory icebreaker course and build up to angling. The belly-dance classes are a sensual and inventive way to strengthen the core without subjecting yourself to radioactive spider bites.

- Belly2Abs is a beautiful program that challenges women to reach their highest potential both externally and internally. The class is strenuous, relaxing, and overall empowering in every way. As her mission statement says, the class truly challenges the student to “unleash the goddess within”. – Bela Alvarez, Examiner.com
