Workouts, In-person

  • Wednesday, time varies, at the Fry Family YMCA

At the Fry Family YMCA, in Naperville, I offer Stronger Together (open to all but designed for people with disability (PWD) or chronic health issues).  This is a foundational strength training class, as the majority of Americans do not strength train as much as the American College of Sports Medicine recommends.  This class  is lower intensity, to ensure quality form and not exacerbate or cause injury (ex. fainting from plyometrics and POTS).
