About Nathan Ross Rees:

Nathan is on a worldwide tour teaching instructors how to intentionally adapt load with a reformer. Reformer workouts are resistance training. The understanding on how to adapt load with intention gives you the ability to:

  • control how fast people fatigue
  • challenge all ability levels
  • achieve studio consistency

Nathan promotes critical thinking and encourages instructors to question everything they know. He teaches how to program reformer classes, how to sell out classes, and how to build a strong community connection.
