At the CrossFit Memphis training studio, every brow is knit in intense concentration. Students are tussling with dumbbells, sprinting up and down courts, and leaping onto Olympic platforms.

Each workout strives to hit a variety of fitness targets at the same time, including stamina, strength, power, balance, and accuracy.
