Hard AF?!

  • Challenging, but can make it as hard or easy as you’d like by using different weights.

  • All levels can do this class w/ adjustments.

  • The instructor isn’t as strict w/ the interval timing so you can easily miss some time of the exercise.

  • Basic exercises, but allows you to focus and push.
