BE FIT PITT offers 2 levels of "TBT" making the class accessible for the beginner to advanced participant.

LEVEL 1 - Classes designed to focus on the basic skills needed to safely and effectively perform calisthenics or body weight exercise and other strength training movements. This is a great recommendation for first-time "TBT" participants or those preferring to take their workouts a little slower. 

LEVEL 2Classes designed for the more experienced "TBT" exerciser wanting to move through workouts at a faster and more intense pace. Variation and modification will always be presented; however, it is recommended that participants have a basic background in body weight and strength exercise prior to attending this faster pace class.
