Hard AF?!

  • [solidcore] is very hard.

  • If you like SLT, this class is even more intense. [solidcore] is more fast-paced and muscle exhausting.

  • The exercise variations have you moving on and off the reformer. Setting up quickly for each move will guarantee more workout time. This takes practice.

  • You will sweat.

  • You will be sore.

  • Less focus on proper form than SLT.
