We have a full workout studio where they have multiple classes available during the week; before work, during lunch time and after work. An array of classes including TRX, boxing, bootcamp, yoga and core conditioning are available. After a little bit of hesitation (mainly being shy as I’m still a newbie) I signed up and thought this might not only be a good way to exercise but also to meet people and to get a little more social. I forgot how good the endorphins after exercise feel! Such a good release of energy and a lot of fun.
