Scroll to the bottom, and hit reply to this email to let us know how you did! We got a 60% passing rate, but more importantly, we realized that we needed to take a closer look at our home office set up after one of our new members shared her expertise in ergonomics. Many of us have had the benefit of a proper workstation set up while in the office, but are we taking the same precautions at home?

 

Ultimately, we're interested in creating flexible, strong, mobile bodies that are nourished from the inside out. We don't just stop at how much protein you're eating or how much weight you can lift. If we're stiff and immobile for 12 hours a day, staring down at our laptops and suffering from texting thumb, how effective will our workouts be anyway?

 

This is why we're pleased to announce expanded virtual studio classes for our current members! Get ready for HIIT, Yoga, stretching and flexibility sessions, and ergonomic assessments for your telecommuting workstations on top of our regularly scheduled strength training sessions. If you're not a member yet, click on the all-access pass below to enjoy a free 14-day trial.

The best part is that all classes are conducted live through Zoom AND you can watch replays on demand within 24 hours.

 

What classes light you up? What virtual support are you looking for more of? Hit reply to this email and let us know! We are all about serving you and what you want/need, and will find a way to bring it to you!

 

P.s. if you are a fitness instructor in any modality (dance, yoga, HIIT, barre, weight lifting, etc.) and want to bring your classes to our community while enjoying the benefit of our all-inclusive membership and nutrition programming, please email us at [email protected] and let's chat!
