Hard AF?!

  • This class was challenging, but could have been harder if cardio bursts were incorporated into the routine. My heart rate spiked here and there, but not a ton.

  • There were lots of push ups! Not easy.

  • Of course, can use heavier/lighter weight to adjust to your needs.

  • During station intervals, there wasn’t a lot of time to grab heavier or more challenging weight and/or band options, so there is a risk getting stuck using too light of weights. Maybe wasn’t pushed hard enough.

  • There wasn’t much explanation of the class format bc most people seemed to be regulars.

  • All levels can excel here.
