No matter how much you go to the gym, or how good your squatting or burpees is, until you have run and super-jumped your way around a sweaty indoor court, side-stepped and sprinted around for an entire, unrelenting hour, week in week out, you have not seen your legs in their full sculpted glory.

  •  Fun time
