Hybrid training is when you merge two or more styles of exercise into one workout. In BFTs case, along with specific cardio or strength sessions, they offer hybrid sessions combining both strength and conditioning.
Strength training is so important, especially as we age. It is essential for keeping our skeletal system strong, building muscle, revving your metabolism and managing your weight.
