The April Calendar: 30 Days of Swag




April is here and with it a new STYLE OF SPORT Calendar! Instead of featuring just a single topic as we have been doing (i.e. bikes, sneakers or sunglasses), we are putting it all together with a mix of our favorite sporty things. Everyday there is a hot new must have, must do, must try piece of gear, apparel, workout, sport and more being featured for you to check out.

The classes utilize rowers, free weights, kettlebells, suspension trainers, plyo boxes, medicine balls and more in what they call a FHIX (Functional High Intensity Mix) of exercise moves. Each class is unique but always delivers their signature five essential building blocks for optimal results: (1) functional movements (2) strength training (3) high intensity intervals (4) total body focus (5) highly varied exercises. Following the trend of a la carte fitness, this is a great workout to add to your fitness platter!

A must have training tool for both competitive and recreational swimmers alike. Read More
