At the CrossFit Memphis training studio, every brow is knit in intense concentration. Students are tussling with dumbbells, sprinting up and down courts, and leaping onto Olympic platforms. These are some of the many exercises that make up the innovative CrossFit program, which eschews monotonous cardio machines in favor of varied, high-intensity circuits of functional movements to keep workouts challenging and engaging. Each workout strives to hit a variety of fitness targets at the same time, including stamina, strength, power, balance, and accuracy.
Certified instructors scale movements to accommodate each student's fitness level and help patrons to keep fit by doling out tips on nutrition, emphasizing lean meats and vegetables instead of marshmallows in the shape of lean meats and vegetables. In addition to CrossFit classes, the studio designs specialized classes in strength training and endurance.
