I have been hearing all about the Pure Yoga and the “sweaty mix” of their PXT classes and in this issue they feature moves from PXT that utilizes gliding disks and hand weights to make you strong and lean. Me likey!

“Fit to be Tied”

“Play Dirty!”

Personally I have yet to try a mud run but apparently most of the participants are women (go figure!) Muderella trainer Miriam Wasmund offers tips on surviving your first time running with the muddy folks.
