The coaches at CrossFit Virtue believe in the CrossFit system because its virtues are applicable in the real world. Since the system incorporates full-body exercises that use functional everyday movements, it readies its charges for anything from picking something up from the floor or getting out of a chair to playing a sport or running a marathon. It also makes activity safer by increasing durability through the strength and flexibility earned from those exercises. At CrossFit Virtue, instructors ease newcomers into the system with fundamentals classes, and they also offer one-on-one training.
It's a widely repeated maxim in the CrossFit community that the fitness needs of Olympic athletes and senior citizens differ by degree, not kind. In other words, though an elderly person may not be able to lift as much, run as far, or jump as high as a world-class athlete, he or she should still be performing the same exercises, just scaled accordingly. CrossFit Los Alamitos commits itself to this core tenet of the sport and invites exercisers into its gym even if they're limited in experience or have only used a punching bag for hugging practice. The exercises these patrons perform on a given day could be weight-, endurance-, or agility-oriented, with adjustments to load and duration made for every individual. Ultimately, the coaches ask only that their charges perform the varied exercises at maximum intensity in order to reap maximum benefits such as increased strength, flexibility, and endurance.
You won’t find any treadmills or ellipticals at Bear Flag CrossFit, just 4,000 square feet of iron bars, weights, rowing machines, gymnastics rings, and kettlebells. Beneath an American flag and a California flag, CrossFit-certified trainers Eric Schubring and Will Hurst lead squads of athletes through each Workout of the Day (WOD). WODs never repeat and incorporate exercises such as Olympic weightlifting, body-weight exercises, heaving kettlebells, and rowing—all of which are based on CrossFit’s dogma of varied, functional fitness.

The familial trio of Jack Brown, Jeff Brown, and Lauren Brown chose CrossFit not only because it works, but also because it works for everyone. At Garden Grove Crossfit, they lead classes that welcome men and women from all walks of life. Some are members of the military and police, others are stay-at-home parents or grandparents, and still others are completely new to fitness routines. Their system of intense functional exercises can be scaled to all of them. It's so adaptable, in fact, that one student could be focusing on a completely different regimen from another student during the same class. To create ideal fitness, class leaders change up routines every day, which also keeps boredom from creeping in. So all members can engage the method with confidence, they offer Intro to CrossFit classes every Monday.
