Beast Mode™ can be experienced by anyone of any fitness level, as the movements and exercises are scalable. But Beast Mode™ isn't your average YMCA group exercise class!
The On Ramp cycle covers basic barbell movements and skills that you will need to be successful in a Beast Mode WOD (Workout of the Day). Each class consists of a warm up, skill demo, group practice, assessments/feedback and then finishes with a short workout that includes the skill learned. All classes will include options to scale or modify, also to progress with the movement as needed. Participants must complete all On Ramp classes to be allowed to join the Beast Mode classes. Participants may be able to test out of the classes if they have functional training background or experience.
