COVID-19 is forcing us to adapt VERY quickly as a society. Pretty soon you’re not going to be able to go to the gym. That means Locomotion needs to adapt as a business. That’s why we’re providing you these 31 at-home quarantine workouts.
For the members of Locomotion Fitness EVERY MEMBER GETS A COACH to triple down on accountability, connection, and needed workout adjustments to ensure the workout fits with their goals and is adjusted for their ability level. We will also be holding live classes via zoom so we can still workout ‘together’!
