No two days are the same at Pure Form PFT. One day it's dumbbells and sandbags, the next it's resistance bands and slam balls. But this much is always true—the trainers are going to get muscles working to capacity. Each session focuses on core, strength, and interval training regimes that cater to each student's fitness level and ultimate goals. Sessions involve short bursts of explosive activity, which keeps metabolism and conversational wit working in overdrive for several hours after each workout.
