The motto at CrossFit Insurgent is "start together, finish together," emphasizing the health club's familial community spirit. CrossFit level-one certified head coaches Brian Franzen and Victor Chavez have empathy that matches their muscles, and embody a commitment to their clients that borders on fatherly. Combining Franzen's 18 years in the industry as a gold-medal winning wrestler and personal trainer and Chavez's expertise in mobility, movement, and firefighting, their CrossFit classes produce results while eschewing the mundane tropes of the typical gym experience. Instead of hosting hordes of ellipticals and complex weight machines, the workout space, affectionately known as "The Box," remains uncluttered as patrons use real weights and the machine known as "the human body" to whip into shape.
