Bodyweight Strength + Mobility: This class is an ass kicker in disguise: it’ll build your strength and mobility — usable flexibility — using your own bodyweight through a variety of fun, challenging movements. Expect to be humble, to learn new movements, to love it and to be sore the next day. Lots of attention to detail = awesome injury rehab, or prehab for athletes of all sorts. No experience necessary.
