When you train your body, your body and muscles respond, but your fascia responds as well. Your fascia, which is an extracellular matrix of fibers, “glue” and water between all your cells, responds to training and becomes stronger, more elastic, more communicative, more stretchy, and generally more capable. This class uses rollers, small balls, TRX Suspension Training, and rubber bands to improve your fascia.
