As a word of advice do not come to Mondays show with a full belly of food.  I love when DS Daniel is on the show – he gets people movin’ and groovin’. Think burpee style.  In all seriousness if you have any questions about how to do any of the moves from his challenges bring them to the show and pay attention.  He has a wealth of knowledge that he shares with the people lucky enough to be campaign representatives as well as the rest of the Sistahood if you are receptive.

Special Guest: Daniel Alarik (@gruntstyle)

Daniel Alarik is a former US Army Infantry Drill Sergeant and one of our main Mamavation coaches. His company of US Veterans and family members of veterans of the US Military make up Grunt Style. They create fashionable patriotic wear for every American patriot.
