DURBIS: A Workout
DURBIS: A Workout
This New Year, make your fitness resolutions a fitness reality with DURBIS, a medium-intensity, high-cost, and low-key psycho workout. Trainers/gurus/desperate freaks Bowen Yang and Sam Taggart lead this workout and fitness seminar that teaches you the DURBIS outlook: getting fit is a way of getting railed and getting railed...is a way of life. Just bring your body to class, DURBIS will do the rest.

That said, she's been featured on Splitsider, Jezebel, The Huffington Post, and she's *never* used a prop during a performance. Never.
