Hi Jessica, We offer three types of classes: MetCon, Strength Training, and Kettlebell. MetCon stands for metabolic conditioning and it is a circuit-style class where we do high intensity exercises followed by rest periods in order to bring your heart rate up and down for the best type of cardiovascular workout! Strength Training focuses on working toward building strength which equates to lean muscles and has a great fat burning effect. Kettlebell classes combine strength and conditioning and are a wonderful tool which we have spent years learning and mastering in order to be able to properly teach kettlebell techniques. Hope that helps! I you have any other questions, feel free to contact me at info@achievefitnessboston.com! Best, Lauren
