March Is for Fitness Fun @ MCC: Join us for Fitness Pop-up Classes!

Join your fellow members and our expert team of trainers for weekly pop-up classes this month. Each pop-up will take a deep dive into one of the pillars of our comprehensive approach to fitness and exercise –– Mindset, Movement, and Recovery. At MCC Fitness we encourage members to incorporate each of these pillars into their fitness routine in order to reach their personal best. We know that as part of the MCC Fitness Family, you are already prioritizing movement in your life. Adding time for mindset and recovery will help you raise the bar even higher.

At MCC Fitness mindset means achieving a state of mind that allows you to perform at your best. This includes setting intentions that will help you improve your health one step, one meal, one workout, and one day at a time. We use movement to increase strength, upgrade our overall physical patterns and improve the way we feel every day –– all while having fun. And we never skip recovery because we know that work + rest = success. Learn how to recover so you can reduce pain, decrease stress, and improve your quality of life.

Classes will begin March 7th and continue through March 31st:
