  • Do I need access to a gym for these plans?
    Nope! All training plans can be completed entirely at home. However, you do need some equipment. The required equipment for both programs includes resistance bands, yoga blocks (or books/stools), a chair, and space to move. Optional equipment includes dumbbells and kettlebells.
  • My schedule changes every week. What if I can't do the workouts?
    That's okay! After you complete a workout, you'll get access to the next workout. Once you log a workout, you will have access to it for as long as you stay in the training plan. You can always go back and repeat a workout or keep it for future reference.
  • Will a training plan like this actually help me get better at technique?
    Absolutely. We've trained dancers with these workouts for years, and they can truly feel a difference in their technique during class AND their efforts are rewarded with higher scores at dance competitions. Keep scrolling further on this page to read what others have to say about our training!
