These Functional Fitness classes are energetic, dynamic, and fun! Learn to use your own body weight to build up your strength, power, stability, and muscular endurance. Each class is a 45 minute, high-moderate intensity workout which will incorporate resistance bands, compound movements, and dynamic stretches. The workouts are specifically designed to improve upon your running by increasing strength, flexibility, coordination, and agility. The end result is that your body will be less injury prone and more capable of fluid, efficient movement.
High intensity interval training classes utilize functional training exercises to help build a runner's strength, power, stability, and muscular endurance.
