The certified instructors of Fitness Battalion move CrossFit out of the box and into the urban wild. Their boot-camp classes meet at five parks throughout the city, making use of hills, benches, and playground equipment to support the same exercise moves you might see in a CrossFit gym. Students heft their own bodyweight and run up hills during routines that change constantly, yet remain scalable to any experience level.
They also have a traditional CrossFit gym of their own (called a "box" in CrossFit parlance), where students take on the workout of the day ("WOD") under their coach's supervision. On Ramp courses teach beginners the fundamental movements of the style?such as squats, deadlifts, and presses?and regular group sessions emphasize motivation through camaraderie. To supplement these programs, trainers host private workout sessions, yoga classes, and a running club.
The instructors at GIS Boot Camp are dedicated to helping you achieve your fitness goals, going so far as to create a Fat Loss Accountability Group. The group includes weekly check-ins, members only coaching and support, and weekly food log reviews. This willingness to go above and beyond to meet the needs of their clients, beginners, intermediate, and advanced fitness enthusiasts alike, is seen elsewhere, as well. High intensity programs, such as boot camp and Triple AAA, target specific body parts and focus on toning muscle. They offer classes Monday through Friday at three locations, including Plus Youth Speed, Agility and Quickness classes, teen strength and conditioning classes, and Fit Over 40 women's only classes.
Eating a spicy burrito or betting a pristine collection of Choose Your Own Adventure books on a poker hand may work up a sweat, but it doesn’t qualify as proper exercise. BTB CrossFit & BootCamp provides a vibrant environment where upbeat members benefit from a training program that incorporates multiple disciplines. Eager clients trim their figures and harvest their muscle farms through gymnastics, weightlifting, and plyometric training, as their muscle fibers and muscle ears absorb encouraging words. Workouts are quick and intense, like a game of Galaga, and mimic everyday movements such as pushing, pulling, running, throwing, jumping, dragging, and mixing cake batter while shouting at a perched phone.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
The primary driver with CrossFit is accountability, which we cultivate through a strong community bond with your friends and coaches. It's also motivating to see your own performance improve. Once you get a taste of feeling faster and stronger, nothing else compares.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
Outside class time, coaches may assign homework ranging from gymnastics and Olympic lifting to practicing any of the vast array of movements.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
A typical session includes a warmup, mobility stretching, and movement review before progressing into the workout of the day. Each session concludes with enthusiastic high-fives with your classmates and coaches.
Corey Cutter has always loved working out, be it making fitness videos with her childhood friends or sweating it out in aerobics class as an adult. But it was her mother’s three-decade career as a fitness professional that inspired her to open her current fitness studio, Cre8fit, after 15 years of practicing law.
From this boutique studio, tucked within Riverview Village Shopping Center, Corey shares her passion for healthy living by offering clients the latest in group fitness classes. During Real Ryder sessions, students cycle on technologically advanced machines that mimic real outdoor bikes. CrossCore 180 classes use pulleys and the student's own body weight to strengthen and tone muscles. Corey also works alongside six other instructors, each providing ample attention by making modifications for beginners.
