CrossFit Carol Stream
Inclusiveness. That's a big reason the trainers at CrossFit Carol Stream subscribe to the CrossFit system. Not only is it effective, but its level of difficulty is scalable to all ages as well as skill and fitness levels. To get everyone in on the action, they adapt its slate of functional-movement exercises to suit each participant. Those movements are performed at a high intensity during workouts that change daily to stave off boredom. Workouts feature everything from Olympic weightlifting and sprints to lunges, pull-ups, and medicine-ball toss-back.
That's the other reason they love CrossFit—it's comprehensive. The cross-training techniques get everyone ready for all physical activities they may undertake, including simple household chores. And the coaches don't just throw everyone into the program and hope they hit the ground running. Instead, they begin with Fundamentals classes that help students nail down techniques and learn about supplementary nutritional plans.
