At CrossFit Oconee, amid the 3,900-square-foot facility's padded turf floors and shelves of functional equipment, a skilled staff of certified instructors conduct energetic CrossFit classes and training sessions. CrossFit is a high-intensity core strength and conditioning program that combines elements of track and field, gymnastics, and strength training to maximize results. Instructors guide students through functional exercises akin to everyday movements, such as squats that mirror rising from a seated position or pull-ups that mirror peeking into your neighbor's window to see who has the bigger television. The trainers welcome students of all ages and abilities, scaling their workouts to accommodate varying levels of fitness and restrictive issues.

The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
Throughout the week, Knockout CrossFit?s 14,000-square-foot facility is outfitted with heavy bags, padded floors, and a raised boxing ring, and abuzz with the clatter of weights and kettlebells and the raspy chorus of patrons striving intensely toward fitness goals. For more than a decade the staff has trained fighters in martial art styles such as Brazilian jiujitsu, while a crew of instructors certified by CrossFit leads adults of all levels of fitness through CrossFit classes and boot-camp sessions. After helping groups loosen up with stretching exercise, CrossFit instructors lead students through the system's signature workout of the day, an ever-changing exercise that is scaled to each participant's fitness level. The hour-long classes include a warm-up, skill-development segment, high-intensity workout of the day (WOD), and a period of individual or group sessions. All WOD results are logged in a system called Wodify that helps participants track progress; it also encourages members to compete against each other for results. All classes ultimately prepare participants for any fitness level with varying workouts.
Their hardcore bootcamp classes boost heart rates and core strength with a regimen of modified interval training dedicated to increasing both power and agility. Bootcamps, which utilize 30 minutes of intense cardio, incorporate both body weight and light weight movements, and are wrapped up with 15 minutes of core work. The trainers also help youth bolster speed, conditioning, and techniques in an athletic program. In lieu of monotonous cardio machines, each course works with the facility?s abundance of ropes, rings, free weights, and kettlebells, and the open floor leaves ample space for running, jumping, and gesturing how big you want your muscles to be.
