Ep. 32: Fitness Lying Down

Fitness Lying Down takes a very unique approach to improving your overall fitness and they make it fun at the same time.  The focus of FLD is movement first.  Gone are a lot of the traditional movements with barbells and dumbbells (you won't find them in their facility) and those are replaced with bands, kettle bells and most importantly, the ultimate sand bag.

Anthony and Cory have spent a lot of time thinking about what they wanted to accomplish with FLD and it shows and is highly effective.  Not only will they get you moving better and mastering movements, they will get you in shape and have a great time while you are doing it.  Check out some of the great information they have to share.
