Description

Learn how to spend less time designing your strength-training classes and deliver quality workouts that will reach all ability levels in one class.

Expand your knowledge with this simple system and work smarter, not harder. This course will help you redefine your idea of group strength training and become skilled at keeping your classes simple but completely effective.
