Stair climbing is one of the most efficient activities for improving leg strength and cardiovascular fitness. It's a great low-impact way to get your heart rate up in a short amount of time. We'll do a couple of warm-up reps then you're free to do as many repetitions as you can within 30-40 minutes at your own pace. Optional social/coffee afterwards.
