Reviews

Marcus is a good communicator and instructions are easy to follow

Good on form and intro moves but I wanted to see a full short workout or series of moves (like he does in the intro video clips)

Solid foundational course. Videos were a little on the long side and camera angles made it hard to see the actual movement execution of the instructor.
