It’s another to actually make it a place where everyone feels comfortable and can get a great workout, from newbies to professional athletes. Colleen Conlon, Studio Manager of The Sweatshed, walks us through how she does it with Sweatshed’s HIIT workouts, how she trains her instructors, and what we should be doing to take care of ourselves when we take a new class.
