Hard AF?!

  • YES.

  • This is a very challenging class. You are testing your cardio endurance as well as your ability to weighted cardio moves.

  • The class is taught by former Marines, so yeah, this is hard.

  • Focuses on conditioning via drills.

  • Very military-esqe. You’ll count down with with the instructor who’s calling out cadences.

  • Your body will be energized, but exhausted after class.

  • The class jumps right into class, no explanation about what’s about to come, although the instructor helped me w/ form on the obstacle course and rope climb.
