FITNESS TRIFECTA: May 18 - June 29

Think of this as a Running Clinic with some major perks...something Victoria has never seen!

You know how most running fanatics may not be the most flexible people in town, similar to your average gym junky not having the flexibilty or the endurance to run for very long periods of time. Yogis may be the bendiest peeps around, but do most of them have the endurance of a runner or the strength of the gym junky? Of course I'm totally generalizing here, but we're on a mission to train you on all fronts - the complete package!

Endurance, Strength and Flexibilty taught to you by the leaders in all three areas. So we bring you...
