  • Presentations and seminars from health/fitness industry experts related to training, nutrition, injury prevention, and entry into an occasional Sacfit raffle!
  • Interactive meetings where you are able to ask questions, live or via chat, related to the training program, seminars, and coaching.

Wow, the only thing left would be if we served you breakfast in bed!   Hmmm…
