Similar to Zumba, SWEAT is an hour-long workout class founded by Archer. In the beginning, PGA classes started out with just five of her closest friends and family, to over thirty men, woman, teens, and kids each night. Soon enough, Estelle began gaining attention through social media from people in other states and countries that wanted to participate in her class. In January 2014, she made the decision to put all of her belongings in a storage unit, sell her car, and take her savings to help others. She booked a one-way ticket across the country and started the #SWEATTOUR2014. Today, she has driven and taught her class in over seventy-four cities and 50 states (including Mexico and Puerto Rico).
