XSPORT Prices are not listed and vary per gym location. Contact Cari for pricing or any other questions on specific styles and/or a combination of fitness classes. XSPORT FITNESS proceeds do not go to Cari to sign up for an XSPORT class, but go to the location that best fits you and purchase at front desk. Although there is no profit directly towards Graffiti Rhythms; we highly recommend the experience of taking one of Cari's classes beside a large group of people to fully understand what Graffiti Rhythms has to offer!
