Hey, #RIPPEDFamily! In preparation for California MANIA® (Can we get a WHOOT, WHOOT?) we will be shining light on our R.I.P.P.E.D. family members in and around Northern California. First up is Master Trainer Rossie Ballard, a true powerhouse in the group fitness arena.
She has been involved with Group X for over 20 years we are so extremely lucky to have her as a R.I.P.P.E.D. AND RUMBLE Master Trainer. Rossie owns F.I.T. Tribe Academy, in Visalia, CA and teaches every Monday at 8:30 am and 6:30 pm, as well as Tuesdays at 5:30 pm. She’s also out resident Education Director and travels around the world to help expand our family and certify other R.I.P.P.E.D. instructors.
Okay, okay enough chatting, let’s get to the good stuff. Here’s our quick interview with Rossie:
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What do you enjoy most about R.I.P.P.E.D.?
Rossie: Everything about R.I.P.P.E.D.! I love the music. And I love that it brings in men to classes. The workouts are amazing and effective! And it never gets boring.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: Can you tell us about your love for RUMBLE?
Rossie: I love the MMA element to it. Rumble is authentic and easy to follow. It’s easy to learn as an Instructor. Plus, it’s effective and there is no license fee!!
R.I.P.P.E.D.: How are these formats received amongst your members?
Rossie: Our members have loved both formats since day one. We have many other formats but R.I.P.P.E.D. and RUMBLE are the “heart” of our workouts. I think the “no license” benefit is huge, especially for Rumble because of the other MMA formats in our area. They also love that it can be offered anywhere. And of course, our promo videos drums up a lot of excitement in the area.
R.I.P.P.E.D.: What are you looking forward to the most at SCW MANIA®?
Rossie: Seeing all my R.I.P.P.E.D. family, of course! It’s always a family reunion!!
We’re looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces as well! If you’re curious about our reunion at SCW California MANIA®, we have all the information you need right here.
Thanks for sharing your experience with us Rossie!
