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.
South Charlotte Crossfit is more than just a gym. Instead of leaving visitors to work out on their own, the team of instructors—including former athletes and two competitive-weightlifting coaches—fosters a supportive community spirit by embracing CrossFit’s group fitness regimen. The highly varied sessions provide full-body workouts by combining a variety of functional exercises, which can incorporate everything from medicine balls and chin-ups to free weights and sprints. To ensure that attendees safely push themselves while still getting suitably challenging workouts, the instructors allow each member of the class to either modify or intensify the exercises to complement their capabilities and fitness levels.
At CrossFit QC, dedicated instructors lead students through a highly varied strength and conditioning program based on functional movements. The workouts include a combination of running, jumping, squatting, lifting, and climbing exercises, ideal for total-body fitness or preparing to run from a pack of monkeys. All students begin with an assessment so that instructors can work to place students in levels that are appropriate for their own workout goals and fitness ability. When students are not toning their bodies at the gym, they can visit the Coach’s Corner on the website to find further information and inspiration to lead fit and healthy lives.
True to the gym's motto—"We pick stuff up and put it down"—CrossFit Strength builds powerful, sinewy bodies with simple, yet intense workouts. Certified, award-winning trainers Stephanie and Tony DiLiegro take new and experienced students under their wings, guiding them through a series of rotating daily workouts based on strength- and resistance-training techniques. Eschewing the weight machines and treadmills of globo gyms, CrossFit Strength hones and tones muscles through functional movements such as squats, pull-ups, dead lifts, and teleports.
Gymnastics rings, a tattered American flag, and a floor-to-ceiling climbing rope make the gym at CrossFit 704 look more like an Olympic training facility. Within its walls, CrossFit-certified trainers lead new workouts every day that they design to incorporate functional movements from everyday life—from lifting and throwing to carrying and running. Though the workouts (known as Workouts of the Day, or WODs) change every day, they could often incorporate exercises such as running, weight lifting, dips and pull-ups on gymnastics rings, or other dynamic exercises such as heaving kettlebells.
