Kerri Almaas, CrossFit BB's trainer, likes to stay active?not only is she certified in CrossFit Level 1, kettlebells, and Olympic lifting, but she also loves to camp, cook, snowboard, and play around with her two dogs. At CrossFit BB, she designs a new Workout of the Day, or WOD, each day, designed around CrossFit?s tenets of functional, varied fitness. Though the exercises rotate constantly, they often feature moves such as weightlifting, running, rowing, kettlebell exercises, calisthenics, and plyometrics.
All CrossFit exercises, from pull-ups and deadlifts to lunges and burpees, are inspired by everyday tasks such as squatting down to pick up a box of books or sprinting to catch the bus. At Mountain Loop CrossFit, coach Mitch Roehl trains clients to perform these everyday movements safely while improving their overall strength. He's also able to scale the intensity of these fundamental exercises to suit any fitness level.
Coach Mitch hosts CrossFit workouts every day except Sunday. He also leads an on-ramp introductory course for new students, teaching them the basics so that they can segue into group sessions without carrying around a cumbersome glossary. Fellow coach Katie Dixon, meanwhile, is in charge of CrossFit Kids classes, where children can build muscle, endurance, and a sense of teamwork.
Edmonds CrossFit's team of certified coaches helps exercisers work toward improvement across a spectrum of ten fitness domains that includes endurance, strength, flexibility, and coordination. To that end, a different lineup of exercises awaits with every visit to the gym, each designed to breed a high level of General Physical Preparedness, or GPP?the same thing firefighters strive for when they practice hoisting heavy hoses and rescuing dumbbells out of trees. Class-goers might perform gymnastics stretches, pump out a set of pushups, and then complete some laps of walking lunges before hoisting a barbell over their heads one day, and then perform an entirely new set of exercises the next. For committed participants, the result can be a significant jump in overall fitness and increased ability to handle the physical demands of a long, active life.
Throughout the week, sneakers pound upon triple-bonded foam as students undergo high-intensity routines combining cardio, resistance-training, core-training, and flexibility exercises at Seattle Boot Camp, where trainers work to motivate others in their journeys toward improved fitness and well-being. Their approach focuses on meals made up of lean meats, vegetables, and fruits, eschewing excessive sugar, salt, and bacon-wrapped donuts deep-fried in bacon-wrapped-donut fat.
Tri-Cities? yoga facility pioneering far-infrared classes, Beach Yoga & Wellness combines yoga and Fusion (a Yoga/Pilates mix) instruction with creatively themed classes that include Beach Therapy classes that combine up to 7 different types of therapies to give you the ultimate Yoga experience. Veteran instructors help students stretch and lunge through poses in a tropical-heat environment enhanced by far-infrared waves that facilitate the release of up to seven times more bodily toxins than the average yoga session. The gentle radiation is known to improve skin tone by stimulating the production of collagen. By combing the infrared energy with the studio's steamy temperature, students experience an "artificial fever" that, like a real fever, ignites the body's immune system better than using jumper cables.
