No classes today. BUT…we are posting a bodyweight workout you can do at home while waiting out Hurricane Dorian:

EMOM (Every minute on the minute) for 20 minutes
Minute 1 – 20 air squats
Minute 2 – :30 plank
Minute 3 – 10 burpees
Minute 4 – 10 “bench” dips (use the edge of a chair or couch)

This ends up being 5 rounds. Strive for quality movement. When you complete the assigned movement, rest for the remainder of that minute.

Stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram accounts for updates on when we will reopen. And, if it looks like we won’t be open Wednesday, we will post another home workout for you!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO VINNIE BURKE, KIM CONTI & MARIE SIEBAL
