Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use participants' own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottles to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Between each weight station lies a recovery board where ladies cool down while walking, jogging, or running in place to keep up momentum. With each workout warrior at a different station, the only competition that exists is with one's own burgeoning muscles.
Your Groupon includes two weeks of high-intensity boot-camp classes. With a circuit-training approach that incorporates cardio, resistance, and core workouts, each 30-minute session is accompanied by pulsating music and calorie abandonment. The small class sizes mean more attention to your fitness needs, and Danielle will motivate your workout routine to new levels. To help chart your progress, Danielle will help develop a customized fitness assessment. On non-boot-camp days, an online training program is available so your workout doesn’t skip a heartbeat. You are also invited to attend a "Healthy Meals" preparation party where a group of likeminded fitness buffs gathers to learn about nutrition values. This fitness program is open to women and men of all skill levels.
Intensity and accessibility form the cornerstones of the CrossFit philosophy. Unlike traditional fitness classes, each workout is unique, incorporating a wide range of functional movements into sweat-inducing sequences intended to bolster strength, stamina, flexibility, coordination, and more. The workouts are intended to be taxing; however, students have the ability control the load and intensity of each exercise and safely challenge themselves at their own pace. As a result, students of virtually any age and fitness level can attend provided that they are prepared to pursue a demanding workout regimen.
Self-motivation is vital, but Lowry CrossFit's instructors are also on hand to provide support, guidance, and encouragement. Safety is of paramount importance, so the instructors ensure that every student knows how to use the Rogue Fitness and Rage Fitness equipment scattered across the 3,000 square foot facility. The building also features a separate area for Olympic lifting as well as an outdoor section with a 15-foot-tall structure that students can climb using a rope.
