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.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts more than 2,000 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year.

Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’s staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms or hop into one of the tanning booths available 24 hours a day.
