The trainers at Dig Deep South Jersey specialize in teaching one workout: the high-intensity Insanity regimen. Unlike traditional interval training, the Insanity program asks students to work at full intensity for three- to five-minute intervals, allowing only periodic breaks to let them catch their breath. Plyometric exercises form the core of the regimen's workout, so each 50-minute class will typically consist of time spent squatting, jumping, lunging, running in place, and rapidly blinking. Although the classes are demanding, modifications are available for virtually every exercise, which means that students of all fitness levels can attend and complete the workout at a pace and intensity that prove challenging, yet doable. Over time, visitors will get comfortable pushing themselves harder as they steadily increase their strength and stamina.
Every day, the certified trainers at CrossFit Cetro guide students through a different Workout of the Day. Based on CrossFit’s philosophy of varied, functional fitness, these workouts often blend disciplines such as cardio, weightlifting, strength training, gymnastics, and plyometrics. In the CrossFit Cetro gym, which is equipped more like a fitness playground, athletes might perform squats and rowing one day and dips on suspended rings the next. No matter the workout, trainers believe that each client’s needs are the same as a professional athlete's; the only difference is intensity and volume, which they can scale for each individual’s fitness level.
