MetMob – a public class for non-members!

What do you get when you combine Metabolic conditioning with Mobility? MetMob! MetMob is a workout that will combine metabolic conditioning and mobility work. We will be using bodyweight movements, kettlebells, dumbells and medicine balls to do high intensity functional training. Each workout will be different, fun and challenging! After we get sweaty, we will cool down with foam rolling, ballwork and yoga-based stretching.

MetMob classes are for anyone who wants a great workout and mobility/stretching in a safe and fun small group environment. Whether you are a Crossfitter, a yoga person or someone looking to simply get moving, MetMob is for you! Open to all ability levels, each workout will be tailored to your own individual needs.

Sometimes you’re not ready to Blast Off yet. You need something more, and that’s what our Launch Pad is all about. For people who are seriously deconditioned, somewhat afraid and fairly sedentary, we’ve created a slow and steady process to face the fear together.  With a maximum of 8 members, this class is designed for extra-personal focus.

This 8-week series, with Alyssa Royse, pays extra attention to the body-soul connection. We’ll talk more than we do in most of our classes (and are fully prepared for a few tears,) focusing on body-image and goal setting in a way that celebrates who you are and where you are. We’ll bring in Physical Therapists to assess our movement, nutritionists to talk about minor changes that can have huge impact, mobility specialists to lube our joints and get us ready to move. You’ll also have access to email and meet with Alyssa one-on-one if that’s something you want.

And yes, we’ll work out. Our hope is that with 8 weeks of classes, you’ll have formed the habit of moving and be ready for our regular Blast Off classes. Or to go join the circus, or a dance troop, or marauding mob of roller skaters. Whatever, just feel better in and about your body.
