For students looking to become better athletes, we have the Conditioning Class. This class is all about increasing strength, endurance, and explosiveness in our fencing. The exact contents of the class vary depending on the level of the current students, but expect a lot of footwork and a lot of sweat.

The Conditioning class is an hour long and meets once a week.
