"They want women to reach their maximum potential and then for them to make more goals and continue on, and not just in working out and losing weight and whatever, but in your life," Rodriguez said.
A few moms said the class was an escape from the daily grind of going to work and being at home with the kids, and was a chance for them to let their hair down.
Edrey Greene, a mother of two from Brooklyn, said she started taking the class to finally shed her baby weight. She said she preferred the Vixen Workout over the gym because it gave her a sense of a "team effort."
Greene said her two daughters find her going to the Vixen Workout "interesting."
"They are like, 'Mommy, what are you learning in this class?' They've seen pictures and they're like, 'What position is that?' so they're like, you know, 'a little shocking,' but they understand Mommy is just trying to get her workout in," Greene said, laughing. "It's just for me, and I just really enjoy it."
