Thank-you Perkins + Will for hosting E3 Fitness at their location in Yaletown for a high energy, fun filled circuit class.
I have provided a brief outline, in case you missed the class. Or, are interested in achieving a similar circuit on your own in a small space with limited equipment.
Circuit Class – Total Time: 30 minutes (5 minute warm up/5 minute cool down at beginning and end)
Equipment Needed (optional) – Medicine Balls, Bands, Mats, BOSU’s
*Skipping and Skater Jumps were added in between stations as intervals
Station 1: Body Weight Squats – 15 reps, 2-3 sets (Increase difficulty by adding a weight)
