Are you and your participants ready for the Advanced program?

The StrongBodies Booster Pack contains exercises that are meant to supplement existing StrongBodies program. The exercises can be used to increase variety to the program to keep participants engaged, or to add difficulty when participants have reached a high level of weight. When instructors vary exercises, participants will continue to find the program fun, will benefit physically, and may choose to extend their enrollment! StrongBodies Advanced Instructors will learn a variety of new exercises at varying levels of difficulty; they may change their programs as often as they or their participants like.
