In This to Win with Katie H.

Part one is two tracks, and you’ll set and master your intensity levels for this workout. In part two, you’ll conquer one big 7-minute hill. We’ll take it home together by losing our breath at the end of each section of the ride. Because if we’re in this to win, why not end with a bang?
