Dark Siders appeases the mobility Gods
We are excited to announce a new class: Restore

This class will meet Sundays at 10AM and will focus on restoring and maintaining functional ranges of motion.

Expect an intense session of mobility utilizing proven techniques such as proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching (PNF).

Just like getting strong- getting supple requires hard work- and this is exactly what is often missing from our mobility work.

Mobility and deep stretching is something we often don’t have time to delve into during our already full hour of strength and conditioning in daily classes. We hope that with this class however we can bridge the gap and not only make improvements during this hour, but also allow our athletes to add to their arsenal of mobility tools to use on their own.
