At CrossFit North Valley, exercisers complete a different lineup of exercises each day as they work toward rippling muscles and improved overall fitness. Each class consists of a broad array of high-intensity movements, from dead lifts and presses to pull-ups and dips. The functional aspect of each routine betters participants' performance in other arenas of their lives, such as going on hikes or holding a squat when dinner-table chairs run out. The gym's coaches offer encouragement while students pump out reps together on pull-up bars, ropes, rings, kettlebells, and even tractor tires?breeding accountability, fitness, and team camaraderie.
Six days a week, CrossFit 623?s coaches gather at the warehouse-style gym to guide members into better bodies. The coaches?dubbed the Dream Team?make sure people squat and snatch using the correct form, and flip oversized tires and canoes without pulling a muscle. They guide people through workouts steeped in functional fitness with such equipment as rowing machines, gymnastics rings, and plyometric boxes. Each exercise is easily tailored to ensure members remain challenged, no matter their physical abilities.
CrossFit Full Strength's certified coaches put their charges through a mixed bag of exercises that changes each day. They do everything from clean and jerks to pull-ups and tractor-tire flipping. By changing routines, they work all muscle groups and stave off boredom. All exercises have one thing in common, though?they each combine everyday motions, such as pushing and pulling. Those movements, performed at a high intensity, result in a preparedness for any physical activity.
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.
