TRS/BOSU Circuit Class
The BOSU ball has become a staple of most gym workouts today. It’s flexible build and usage makes it perfect for sit-ups, stepping exercises, and other workouts. Members can grab a ball, and get their sweat on at this class, where they’ll perform a number of routines with a BOSU ball.
