The certified coaches at CrossFit Invoke believe that achieving physical fitness does not need to entail repetitive sessions on a treadmill day after day. Focused on preventing workout burnout, they consider their high-intensity routines play time for adults. In the gym or great outdoors, they lead ever-changing one-hour CrossFit classes that begin with warm-ups before blasting through functional exercise drills, such as holding handstands against the wall, lifting barbells, or pulling reps on the row machine. Throughout these challenging, yet manageable, total-body workouts, they motivate exercisers to build their endurance, stamina, and agility, which can come in handy in everyday-life scenarios.
In addition to CrossFit, their programs include a women-only outdoor boot camp in which gals play catch with medicine balls or swing kettlebells before hopping onto plyometric boxes from a standstill. Coaches motivate attendees into bolstering core strength and agility through power Vinyasa flows during yoga sessions, and martial-arts instruction incorporates the sweat-inducing kicks and punches of practices such as brazilian jujitsu, kickboxing, and muay thai. They tailor each class to each student and offer personal training for those not partial to group classes, in addition to CrossFit for kids, which helps youngsters enhance their coordination and milk-carton-crushing abilities.
