No. People come to Tongass to get healthy. We modify the exercises to match your level of fitness. As you gain strength, endurance, and experience you’ll progress to more challenging (but appropriate) movements.
Either class is a great addition to your fitness, but the two differ in several key aspects. WOD classes have an overall higher intensity level, with higher heartrate workouts and lots of time spent with a barbell. The Functional Circuit classes are of a moderate intensity with lower heartrate and more time spent on muscular hypertrophy. There is also less time spent with barbells and more time spent with dumbbell, kettlebell, resistance band and bodyweight movements. Both classes are conducted by an expert coach and last one hour.
Comfortable clothes that allow free range of motion like yoga pants or shorts are always good. Any training/gym/running shoes will suffice. Many of our members find themselves getting a pair of flat-bottomed shoes for squatting eventually. We have a water fountain/bottle-filling station. We provide everything else you will need.
We are located just passed downtown Juneau in the Thane area in the dark green boat condos (near The Rock Dump) in Units 13 & 14. You can park in front of either one of those units or on the street. Please DO NOT park in front of our neighbors’ spots in front of the other condos.
No prior experience necessary! We’re here to help no matter where you are in your fitness journey.
