The nature of this class will be catered to meet the fitness ability of the attendees. Essentially, each class will be organized into three, increasingly challenging, 30-minute sections. For some folks, the 30 minute warm up will be thoroughly satisfying, and for others, an hour of training will suffice. Should you choose to sit out at any point, you are welcome to observe the remainder of the class, to take notes, or even shoot a bit of video. Classes will tend to focus on body weight exercise, demonstrating Dr. Doug's unique "progressive mechanical disadvantage" concept, utilizing play with partners, and lots of just plain fun. All five facets of fitness will be pronounced, with stress most likely being on highlighting your weak areas and congratulating you on your strong points. Expect to be challenged, have a great time, and to have earned your breakfast by the time you are done. Please, dress for action. You must show up on time. Anyone missing the warm up will not be allowed to participate in the remainder of the class.
