the class is held in a big open room, and when I walked in there were huge, thick ropes on the middle of the floor. we got into 5 groups of 5 people for 5 circuit stations, and Gregg demonstrated the exercises we’d be doing at each station. 2 exercises per station, and you repeat the 5 stations twice. make sense?
