This strength training class meets for a fun and effective workout, designed for all fitness levels. This class builds endurance and strong muscles, speeds up metabolism, and improves balance and flexibility. Endurance training develops long, lean, well-shaped, toned musculature… muscles that are strong and do not fatigue easily. This enables better performance in most sports and, most importantly, everyday activities. The combination of strength and flexibility training is a winning one and will improve your ability to function at your best in your real life.
