Pack Training

What is Pack Training?

Pack Training is a 10-week small group training program. Each week builds on the progress made in earlier sessions with exercises designed to improve agility, functional strength, muscular strength, and power. Throughout the program, workouts will have varying degrees of intensity, but each class will have the same structure: foam rolling, a dynamic warm-up, and high-intensity agility and strength exercises. Every Pack is made up of six participants, creating a friendly and motivational workout environment. Whether you are new to fitness or looking for something to switch up your routine, our certified instructors will motivate you through challenging and creative workouts. Pack Training offers an exciting new way to work out that will push your limits and leave you feeling accomplished.
