Once you build your resistance, you get to decide what you do with it. You’ll have one full song to recover right in the middle so you can give your all every step of the way. This advanced class is all about embracing the challenge you’ve been given…then trusting your gut when it comes to what’s next!

Your challenge is to learn from your experiences to create a stronger stride each time around.
