While working as a firefighter and paramedic, CrossFit Brownsville owner Jonathan Jones counted on the CrossFit system to stay in shape for the grueling demands of his job. Today, he and his team teach the method to others, incorporating Olympic lifting, gymnastics, cardio, and resistance training into their workouts. That mix, combined with everyday motions, fosters a full-body workout, and one that readies participants for all kinds of physical activities. Instructors can scale CrossFit workouts to suit anyone, including grandparents, marathon runners, and those just getting into a fitness routine. To ease into the system, students start off with a three-day Fundamentals class that introduces CrossFit's fundamentals and techniques.
The expert trainers of PÜR Fitness & Health work one-on-one with clients to create personalized workout regimens. They use all the gear in the well-stocked studio, incorporating TRX suspension training, weight lifting, and battling ropes. With boot camps, they combine the same intense workouts with the camaraderie of a group environment.
No matter your age, shape, size, or fitness level, there's a place for you at CrossFit Work Over Time. During CrossFit sessions, trainers scale workouts for each client, customizing all weightlifting, cardio, and resistance-training exercises and bolstering session with positive encouragement and reinforcement. By designing new workouts daily, trainees—and their muscles—can avoid plateauing or falling into a rut. And to keep intimidation factors at a minimum, students can start out with beginner or intermediate CrossFit classes.
The trainers at Flex Fitness could likely turn in any space into a training space. Whether a parking lot, a grassy clearing, or the basketball court on top of Mt. Rushmore, it can quickly be converted into a boot camp space. Ropes, tires, or just the student's body weight can be used in Flex Fitness's personal and group training sessions, which blend strength and cardio conditioning for an intense all-around workout.
The "grit" in Camp Grit also serves as an acronym?it stands from Group Interval Training. However, the outdoor fitness boot camp also encourages a more literal form of grit, with tough workouts that blend plyometrics, resistance training, circuit training, and more.
