INSANITY® uses a method called Max Interval Training. It's not your typical interval workout. You'll do cardio and plyometric drills with intervals of strength, power, resistance, and core training. It all happens in long bursts of maximum-intensity exercises with short periods of rest so you can burn up to 1,000 calories in an hour.
There are MODIFICATIONS demonstrated during class to make this workout acceptable for all fitness levels. Bring a towel, mat, water, and get ready to dig deep and push yourself past your limits!
Wednesdays from 7-8pm
First Class $5
Single Class $7
5 Class Package available for $25
