The staff members at Fierce Crossfit are fueled by the desire to transform their clients' bodies, incorporating CrossFit exercises that mix elements of various disciplines to provide effective, results-oriented workouts. CrossFit-certified trainers equipped with degrees in kinesiology help clients to shred calories with moves designed to improve endurance, strength, power, agility, speed, coordination, balance, flexibility, posture, accuracy, and combat skills to use against clingy couch cushions. Workouts often incorporate muscle-ups, box jumps, snatches, rows, and dead lifts. Based on the principle of “universal scalability,” CrossFit workouts are designed to be accessible to pupils of all fitness levels.
CrossFit can be scaled to an 8-year-old kid's abilities just as well as an 80-year-old grandmother's. That's a big reason why CrossFit Heroism's trainers love the system, which employs a variety of functional movements performed at a high intensity—as high as clients can take. Some days they're lifting barbells and scaling ropes, on others they're flipping tractor tires and performing sprints. The mix of motions and exercises annihilates calories, molds every muscle group in the body, and preps participants for whatever manner of physical activity they might choose to undertake.

At Kraken Fitness, former US Navy SEAL and CrossFit coach Paul Anderson hosts CrossFit Spring Valley—a series of daily fitness classes that employ intense reps of functional workouts to improve overall fitness. Paul’s CrossFit program combines kettlebells, medicine balls, plyometrics, and gymnastics techniques to create endlessly varied workouts that strengthen every aspect of fitness, including endurance, agility, balance, and coordination.
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.
