Additionally, the Ramp allows the member to explore numerous movement modalities to enhance the overall training experience.

The benefits associated with incline training are vast. According to a study conducted by FreeMotion Fitness there are three primary benefits associated with incline training:

Fall is an amazing time at SouthRAC

The most beautiful time of year at SouthRAC is fall. You may not realize how many large trees with vibrant colors are  surrounding the facility. We were lucky this year to get some pictures before the leaves had started to fall. H78A0025 H78A0019_2 H78A0017_2 H78A0016_2
