Rough Around The EdgesJun 14, 2019
These are the women who put the “action” in blockbuster action movies.
They’re the real Hollywood heroines, fighting armies of bad guys as they leap from rooftop to rooftop, hurtling down freeways on the hoods of cars — never flinching, whether they’re on fire, underwater, or careening through the air.
For professional stuntwomen, that’s all in a day’s work. To do what they do, they have to be among the fittest humans on the planet.
And if you’re one of those who likes their fitness programs to have fewer frills and a lot more swagger, then we have the perfect program for you. It’s called Rough Around The Edges, and it’s available exclusively on Openfit.
Rough Around The Edges will let you into this world. You’ll train with a team of professional stuntwomen and learn some of the actual moves they do to get ready for their roles. It’s tough, it’s demanding, and it’s designed to work your body in ways you’ve never worked it before.
If you’re ready to throw down, work hard, and give it your all, Rough Around The Edges will give you the opportunity to find out how strong you really are — and how much stronger you can be.
Because real power starts on the inside.
What Is Rough Around The Edges?
Rough Around The Edges is an intense, results-driven training program led by a team of professional stuntwomen, athletes, and martial artists — each with her own strength, skill set, and style of motivation — so you’ll always find someone in the group to connect with. They’ll take you through a series of challenging, unconventional workouts, like Dance Fight MMA, Action Star Cardio, Booty Building Boxing, and Firecracker Weighted Core — to help you build strength, agility, power, and quickness.
No doubt, the workouts are intense, but they’re also exhilarating and fun. Each challenges your body in a different way. You’ll use kickboxing moves to build your core, karate techniques to burn fat, and superhero stunts to build strength and lean muscle.
