Try Something New at Forza!

About a year and a half ago, I started attending strength and conditioning classes at Forza. Gretchen is an extremely knowledgeable instructor, and I’ve been amazed at the positive changes I’ve noticed both in my body and my attitude toward exercise because of her classes.

Recently, I tried the latest addition to the impressive lineup of equipment she offers – bungee cords! And I’m not talking about jump-off-a-tall-structure kind of activity here. This workout is safe, great for all body types, and remarkably fun.

Since it was my first time, Gretchen took the time to walk me through set-up. She explained how to select and attach the right harness and bungees for my size. After securing the cords and making sure I felt comfortable, she led us through a series of movements that targeted different muscle groups and required quick bursts of cardio. The bungees create resistance that challenged me without the impact or strain of some other types of exercise. The best part? I couldn’t stop smiling during this class! At the end of the efficient 30 minute routine, I felt the rush of experiencing something totally different combined with the rejuvenating effects of a good workout.

Forza is the only place in town offering this unique approach to a stronger and more resilient body. Join the fun on Mondays at 6:00 pm. I know I’ll be back again!
