Maximal Effort Conditioning - Monday 9:30 AM
We love science, data, and sports. The combination of all three is exactly where our MEC approach stems. This advanced workout using Rogue Echo Bikes, Concept 2 SkiErgs, Rowers, etc. will push you past your current limits both physically and mentally.
The objective? Work as hard as your body can to help your team get to its goal as efficiently as possible. When your body starts to slow down, you rest and encourage your teammates as they take over. When it is your turn again, you find a way to push harder than the time before. It's quite the viscous, but also rewarding cycle.
The results? This style of workout can improve your body composition and cardiovascular system (heart rate recovery (HRR), resting blood pressure, VO2 max) while gaining some friends along the way.
What to bring? Please bring clean indoor shoes separate from the ones you wore outside, a water bottle, and a towel.
Please note, this is not a workout that can be performed with zero fuel in the tank. Make sure you get plenty of food and water in your system the 24-48 hours prior. (We don't recommend eating a large meal or trying to drink a gallon of water right before you walk through the doors to workout. That does not end well, ever. Take our word for it; we have seen the aftermath and it is not pretty.)
Due to this being very high intensity, we have a 48-hour rest policy between MEC classes. However, you are welcome to join us for yoga on your MEC rest days.
