You will dig deep within to move forward in your health and fitness journey but you never know what type of class you're going to get because it is a surprise every time! Some days may be intermediate/high cardio routines, strength training, plyometric, body-weight training, conditioning or a little bit of everything. Bottom line, you’ll get a great total body workout and you will challenge your aerobic and anaerobic thresholds every time. Come prepared to sweat, breathe hard and get #HealthyFit#!
This class is for all levels of fitness. Modifications are available for exercises if needed.
