No two classes are are the same in our 50 minute workouts which are designed to incorporate elements of Core, Strength, and Cardio. While some classes  are targeted to strengthen specific muscle groups, others are HIIT focused.

We use the TRX, kettlebells, battleropes and more to get the job done! We promise that each time you leave, you will be sweaty and smiling!

If you’re a first timer, here are some tips!
