To start it all off we will be holding a series of seminars at ‘The Den’ that will help you to optimize your training. Our plan is to help you to understand the method behind our training, and in turn inspire you to train harder, push yourself further and most importantly remain injury free.
The Theme of our first seminar is ‘Functional Fitness’ and will be hosted by ‘Body In Motion Rehab’.
