Power lifting, gymnastics, running, rowing, and jumping rope. These are several tools CrossFit uses to facilitate fitness, but not all of them. At CrossFit Wellington, coaches employ the system's medley of exercises to create a comprehensive workout. That workout features constantly varied functional movements performed at a high intensity. In short order, it builds total-body fitness—enhancing strength, stamina, and agility. Instructors change workouts daily, too, to keep boredom from sneaking in and ruining motivation. Motivation, actually, is another tool of CrossFit, and CrossFit Wellington's staff of trainers knows just how use it to keep everyone on track and inspired to achieve goals. And, since workouts can be adapted to anyone's abilities, CrossFit is ideal for all fitness levels and ages. An inclusive system by nature, trainers further its accessibility by offering beginner's classes and even kids' programs.
Shannon "The Cannon" Hudson is an International Kickboxing Federation world champion, a fifth-degree black belt in japanese shotokan karate, and a survivor of more than 70 bouts in the ring—yet, one of his most influential titles is "father." With two kids clinging around his waist like a squirmy fanny pack, Shannon started brainstorming a way to channel his boxing and kickboxing training into a quick, effective workout that even those who are busy or out of shape could tackle. The result was 9Round, a 30-minute routine of aerobic, anaerobic, and resistance moves divided into a circuit of nine stations. The ever-changing series of workouts maximizes morale and results and minimizes boredom.
His trainers launch the workouts every three minutes, motivating exercisers through each station—which might include jumping rope or pummeling speed bags. Online nutritional counseling supplements the workouts, teaching patrons how to construct and eat healthful meals instead of falling back on old habits, such as snacking on cheese sculptures.

The studio has also added suspension training—which, like Pilates, strengthens and tones the core—to its class curriculum.
