Rush Performance: Personal Training Studio's certified trainers take positive attitudes and community support so seriously that if you complain during your trial of the Team Rush training program and bring any negativity, you won't be able to join Team Rush. And that would mean not torching hundreds of calories and toning up during strength, cardio, and sports conditioning sessions and high-intensity interval circuits.
Even the personal training requires supporting your fellow exercisers as it usually involves small groups of two to four working out together and forming a human pyramid to place any junk food out of reach. The trainers often use the FitRanX fitness-testing system to determine how fit a person is before they start Rush's programs and to monitor their progress throughout.
Pushing, pulling, lifting, squatting, running: these are just a few of the motions involved in an average CrossFit workout. CrossFit 88's professional fitness coaches rely on two criteria?variety and intensity?when developing their daily workouts. These workouts are held in an open gym filled with functional equipment such as free weights, jumping boxes, and weighted sleds.
Though CrossFit is known for its high level of intensity, students need not be afraid of falling behind. The instructors make sure to scale each workout to individual abilities, which keeps the system inclusive and each student's goals in reach. Beginners can get acquainted with CrossFit in Fundamentals classes, in which the instructors teach the correct way to lift a barbell and dispel the common myth that all ropes are snakes in waiting.
Lifting weights is a tough, and Air Fitness' industrial atmosphere reflects this?the gym's name scrawls across the grey graffiti wall; kettlebells perch atop blocks labeled "Rogue" in bold, black letters. The cardiovascular exercises are equally rough and tumble, as treadmills are swapped out for high-intensity boot camp, and moose-milking classes.
There are no restrictions on the clientele welcome at CrossFit 1013?everyone from grandmothers and kids to pro athletes whose paternal grandfather trained with Hercules can benefit from the effects of CrossFit. The strength and conditioning system adapts to match the skills of its practitioners, tying the load and intensity of jumping, pushing, and climbing to each exerciser?s ability level. Regardless of the power behind lifts and pull-ups, the routines hone 10 physical skills, ranging from cardiovascular endurance and stamina to coordination and agility. Each group class begins with warm-ups, followed by strength training, before moving on to CrossFit?s signature workout of the day, an ever-changing routine that spends anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes awakening brute power through the use of old-school tools such as kettlebells, climbing ropes, and tractor tires.
The inspiring trainers at MetaBody lead troops of women workouteers in results-getting one-hour workouts several times weekly.

MetaBody's motivational instructors will use your instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. They’ll keep your muscles guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so you’ll never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth-brushing. 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 class. In addition to the fitness classes, you will receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound-loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching.
Inside the Atlas Performance facility, climbing ropes hang from the ceiling, squat racks line the walls, and ERG rowing machines dot the floor.

A crew of certified coaches, including some with a masters degree in Exercise Physiology and Sports Nutrition along with CSCS, PES, CPT, and CF1 certifications, preside over the class proceedings, correcting technique, shouting encouragement, and snatching away cheeseburgers while clients perform their workouts.
