Carole Turnbo credits CrossFit’s dedication to varied, functional fitness with giving her a new lease on life. Now certified in CrossFit nutrition and as a Level 1 trainer, she shares her passion for healthy exercise as often as she can. But, while running a “Fit Club” at Schmucker Middle School and coaching a rugby team exemplify her dedication, they play second fiddle to her true calling: training students during classes at CrossFit Michiana.

The end goal in each of Carole’s sessions is competence in CrossFit’s 10 recognized fitness domains, which include cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. Students gain their ranks with the help of the Workout of the Day (WOD), an ever-changing exercise that incorporates one or more elements of the aforementioned fitness domains. During sessions, groups of students occupy CrossFit Michiana’s workout warehouse—which is more like a fitness playground—as they sweat through moves such as push-ups, pull-ups, weight lifting, and rowing. Like Santa’s collection of antique sabers, CrossFit Michiana also has equipment that can be fun but should never be used as toys, including ropes for climbing, gymnastics rings for dips, and massive tires for tire flipping.

Even before YMCAs were known worldwide as the easiest organization to spell with your arms, they were known for their original mission of fostering a sense of community through youth development, healthy living, and social-responsibility programs for people of all ages and income levels. The Michiana Family YMCA promotes wellness programs with a full-service gymnasium filled with an arsenal of modern Cybex strength machines, cardio machines, and free weights. Athletes can also stretch muscles within on-site racquetball courts, swim laps inside a 25-yard, six-lane indoor pool, and film re-creations of the 1996 Olympics on the 1/16th-mile outdoor track. The Y organizes youth programs such as summer camps and leadership opportunities and keeps younger tots occupied with childcare services.
