No cheating here! The Spring Wall Equipment allows for full range of motion while at the same time providing progressive resistance and isolation of specific muscle groups.
The emphasis will be on both stretching and toning, with segments dedicated to strengthening the abdominals and rotator cuff work with flex bands.
This workout combines the love of springs, barre and weight transfer. Set to music, this class is sure to get your heart pumping while improving balance, strength and flexibility.
