The trainers at CrossFit 100 came to the intense style of exercise through different channels. The founder changed her career path from fashion designer to fitness. One instructor found CrossFit after years of plugging away at a boring gym routine, and another fought crippling back pain with CrossFit. Together, they lead students of all fitness levels through intense, scalable workout programs that make use of full-body, functional fitness techniques using equipment such as sandbags and ropes. And, since the routine is constantly varied, participants avoid plateaus while constantly building strength, endurance, speed, and agility.
A former German native and professional soccer player, Andreas Davi, takes the helm at German Fit, where he specializes in building strength in students of all ages. Specialty classes help kids aged 10 and older work on their endurance and instill in them an appreciation for cumulative results based on hard work. Adults take part in both personal-training sessions and group classes, which use dynamic exercises to target specific areas of the body. No matter the class, the focus on speed and agility give students the chance to train like professional athletes.
Founded by chiropractors specializing in sports medicine, The Fusion Gym combines corrective and functional exercises into a 12-week workout program that has been dubbed IN*Fused. Each week, the gym's coaches focus on a specific body area or fitness skill such as core, agility, or car-door-slamming. To complement the program, The Fusion Gym offer nutrition coaching, wellness services, and a seven-point functional-movement screening.
The certified and decorated instructors at Achieve Personal Fitness believe that workout variety can help push fitness goals to the next level, which is reflected in their schedule of circuit-based classes. The membership-based studio’s training sessions have themes such as cardio, strength, and power, each of which can be personalized to any fitness level and have been performed by professional football players.
NSCA-certified personal trainer Sandi Blok believes the best exercise routines are the ones that you can actually commit to. That's why, through her training company Live and Be Fit Personal Training, she schedules one-on-one workouts at either Fit Nation, LLC, or the most convenient location: your home. If you're looking for a workout that's more social than personal training and less social than an Arnold Schwarzenegger birthday party, you can sign up for one of Blok's boot-camp, kickboxing, or Insanity classes.
