Eric Wrona, owner of CrossFit Templum, has been working in the fitness industry for more than 15 years, assisting clients ranging in age from 8 to 92. Along the way, he has received degrees in exercise physiology and kinesiology and even competed as a natural body builder, winning the Austin Shredder competition in 2006.
But all of his training aside, he believes that CrossFit is effective thanks to the sense of camaraderie it builds among participants, who encourage one another to keep going through the vigorous Workouts of the Day. At CrossFit Templum, he and a team of certified CrossFit instructors share their knowledge and motivate clients to lead overall healthier lifestyles during their ever-changing assortment of exercises. The routines?a combination of endurance, strength, and core training?are designed to yield functional fitness for day-to-day activities such as climbing stairs, lifting heavy grocery bag, and lifting cars into tight parking spaces.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
Jeremy Jones and Jason Johnson, two United States Marines and professional fitness trainers, lead the classes at Corps Fitness Strength & Conditioning. Influenced by military workouts, sessions begin and end with clients in military formation before they tackle exercises that involve unconventional tools, such as sand bags, weighted bars, and tires. The 50-minute workouts also include a military-style obstacle course, and they can be scaled to each individual’s fitness level. Corps Fitness Strength & Conditioning also donates a portion of proceeds to veteran charities.
First-time exercisers and seasoned gym-goers alike will find a challenge in CrossFit, a functional, scalable workout regimen. At CrossFit Coppell Central, instructors rotate workouts regularly, pulling moves from a lengthy arsenal that includes burpees, dead lifts, pull-ups, squats, and walking lunges. Newbies can schedule a fundamentals session to learn exercises before a regular-level classes or enlist in CrossFit Coppell Central's personal training for an even more individualized workout.
At CrossFit South Lewisville, passionate trainers lead students of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels through high-intensity workouts that blend gymnastics, weightlifting, and cardio to mold the body into a lithe, athletic machine. Developed by Greg Glassman in 2002, CrossFit depends on a dedicated community of followers that motivate each other through an ever-changing barrage of daily exercises. The workouts focus on functional movement and variety, steering clear of the repetitive, pointless grind of a cross-country stationary bike ride. Instructors at CrossFit South Lewisville do more than inspire their pupils to lift massive tractor tires or increase their heart rates?they welcome them into a community of fellow athletes, shaping flab into muscle with personal training, nutrition planning, and sports-specific workouts.
Most workouts simply help people build muscle tone or bolster endurance. These aren't the only goals at 81mm CrossFit. Instead, the coaches and trainers inspire people to push themselves to new heights through sheer force of will and self-determination while receiving the support of a like-minded community of students. CrossFit classes combine functional movements to create high-intensity workouts, which challenge attendees with regimens that can include running, jumping, dead-lifting weights, throwing medicine balls, swinging kettlebells, and more. Although students have the ability to scale the load and intensity of their own workouts at open-level classes, the coaches also lead introductory sessions that help beginners master the fundamental exercises and techniques in a safe, supportive environment.
