How to Weight Train at Home

Feeling bored or just frustrated by a lack of options at home? Making the transition to weight training at home can be a challenge, but we can help! It doesn’t take a lot of money or equipment to get going, and you can still get a great workout.

In this program, learn proper techniques from a certified trainer in a small virtual group that will allow for personal feedback.  You’ll finish with the confidence to create and adapt your at-home workouts so you stay safe and see results!

All levels welcomed, but focus will be on the beginner level.  No weights required, however any dumbbells etc. that you may have, will be used.
