That booty series is one of the things that sets Jabs Gym apart. It’s run by Sydni Jones who is one of eight personal trainers. The 90s R and Booty is modeled behind rhythm and blues and incorporates music and dance from the 90s.
“It’s 90s music. I do incorporate a few in the 80s. 90s music with resistance bands but we’re doing more rhythmic type movement, but we’re really hitting those hips. We’re hitting the booty, we’re hitting the legs, we’re hitting everything,” said Jones, a head trainer at Jabs Gym.
They’re also hitting the punching bag at Jabs with a variety of high boxing and kickboxing classes that co-owner Rashad describes a “nightclub for fitness.”READ MORE: Michigan Legislature Pushes For Pause On Gasoline Tax
