Following the CrossFit ethos, CrossFit Chesapeake's instructors design high-intensity workouts that build strong, resilient bodies. Depending on their fitness levels, participants may begin the gym's muscle-manufacturing process with exercises that use only their body weight, such as squats, pushups, and tonguestands. As tone and technique improve, trainers tack on tonnage with sonorous dumbbells and hissing kettle bars, as well as with plyometric boxes and medicine balls. Cardio blasters such as rowing, running, and rope jumping also enliven workouts.
Each one of Fentress CrossFit's certified trainers shares a passion for athletics that he or she has developed over decades of experience in the fields of weightlifting, running, and nutrition.

Though CrossFit workouts are short⎯often only 20 minutes⎯the high-intensity circuits demand mental and physical exertion from students, rewarding them with newfound strength, greater endurance, and muscles yet to be discovered by science. Trainers make sure bodies don't bore themselves with machines and treadmills, but rather remain engaged with ever-changing workouts of the day that employ functional movements, including lifting objects, jumping rope, rowing, and climbing.
