With lots of variety, this class will sculpt every muscle group with a focus on muscle endurance and control! Then for an extra kick (and jello legs), this class includes a cardio interval on the low-impact Jumpboard to give you added leg strength (a great compliment to running) along with an elevated heart rate for the extra burn!
About Freehouse Fitness: We offer unique workouts that are smart, effective & fun! A studio that is free from "methods" and fitness fads, we believe in exercise diversity, highly-educated instructors, personal attention and a crazy-positive studio environment!
What if the answer to running faster didn't just involve more running? Come try out "No Run Run Club" and experience fun and effective weight training and plyometrics created to make you more resistant to injury and most importantly faster! The class will be taught by 5x Ironman finisher, World Championship qualifier, and owner of Subversus Fitness, Wylie Belasik. Have fun, move your body and get faster without running!

Who value hard work and personal integrity. In each of our classes, you can expect to challenge your body while engaging in an environment that values passion.
This 90-minute class will build strength for a runner’s most chronically stressed areas: the hips, hamstrings, and calves. We’ll focus on joint stability and relieving the stress of repetitive movement by focusing specifically on working the core, the hip flexors, and adductors. An additional focus on hamstring and calf strength will build speed and can help correct form issues.
