Panthers are thin and strong animals. But think about how they move. Stoop, crawl and attack suddenly. They burn calories while they train their entire body, from head to tail. Respond to the challenge of the wild panther with the following workout. Like panthers also other animals have their movements which keep them strong and survive into the wild. So we have copied a few of those movements in order for us to survive in our “wild environment”!
