HEADS UP….these classes are going to be INTENSE with LOTS of running, interspersed with strength work. There will be no modifications to the training. Need to rest? Then it’s on you to catch up to the group in the workout.

Scared? Eh, be a little scared, but know this is going to be an amazing workout just for “fun” or to get you ready for mud runs this summer. It’s also a good chance to push yourself, get tough, and build camaraderie with your PK&P teammates!
