No frills. That aptly describes CrossFit Brantford's gym, a warehouse-like space where the blips and beeps of fancy contraptions are absent. In that environment, coaches use boxes, ropes, bars, weights, and resistance bands instead of complicated exercise machines
to get clients fit. Employing such uncomplicated equipment, they teach functional exercises focusing on movements such as pushing, pulling, and lifting. They tailor those routines to each student's abilities, ensuring CrossFit is a system that works for those of all ages and fitness levels. With that system's mixed bag of exercises and regularly changing routines, students can get ready for marathons, typical work days, and everyday chores.
