“The pain in your butt is?” said Forti, trying to continue her lesson.

“The TLC!” called out another jokester.

Forti, 36, a licensed massage therapist and personal trainer from the Upper West Side, was leading a class of 19 professional drivers — people who sit in cars for up to 12 hours per day — to talk about their aches and pains and teach them what to do about it.
