  • 12:00PM to 1:30PM
  • Online

Weekly Functional Fitness Workout with Professor Ian Ayres

  • 6:00PM to 7:00PM
  • Online

All levels of experience are welcome, but for some classes you will need an item to lift with one hand. This item can be a dumbbell or kettlebell or it might be a jug of milk or Clorox (something that can be gripped with one hand). It would also be a good to have a yoga mat, bath towel or carpeted area for floor padding. Zoom info can be found here.
