    Favorite thing about teaching Buff Bones:

    I love that the workout is accessible to so many. Not only do I have clients who are committed to the class specifically for improving their bone health, but also those who just love the workout and feel it safely challenges them. When I was first introduced to Buff Bones, I assumed this would be the case, that people would really fall in love with work. What I didn’t realize was the tremendous community it would build. Having taught the same Buff Bones mat class at the same time for the past four years, I am witness to a tight knit group of students who have come to call themselves friends. This has been so satisfying to experience!
