Elevating fitness potential and forging healthier lifestyles. That's the goal at SuperNatural CrossFit, plain and simple. Its trainers enact that plan through CrossFit workouts—a system of functional movements performed at a high intensity. It's a system that borrows from gymnastics, Olympic lifting, cardio, and resistance training methods, and is embraced by firefighters, police officers, and the military. It's fitting, then, that SuperNatural's coaches come from police, SWAT, and Olympic lifting backgrounds. Experts in CrossFit, they scale their workouts to each individual, keeping goals realistic and within reach. They also mix up routines daily to keep everyone pumped, engaged, and ready to tackle exercises such as kettlebells, sprints, and plyometrics. Though all classes involve personalized attention, trainers provide private weightlifting classes as well.
At CrossFit Push Box, enthusiastic coaches educate and train clients to reach a new level of fitness. Workouts feature a broad array of high-intensity, functional movements that change daily—from dead lifts and bench presses to pull-ups and dips—to help increase strength and endurance. The 4,000-square-foot facility is packed with equipment such as ropes, rings, kettlebells, and even tractor tires, aiming for a broad base of fitness than can translate into increased energy and an improved outlook.
Certified instructor and owner of CrossFit Vindicate, Chris Hall has had a lifetime of sports experience teach him how to train. However, it was an ACL tear that taught him that CrossFit is the ideal system, whether hurt, healthy, training for a marathon, or just trying to stay fit. It’s an intense system that employs constantly varied functional movements to achieve a full-body workout, using elements of gymnastics, weightlifting, and track and field. Chris can also scale each session to each individual, ensuring everyone gets the most out of the class without being intimidated by the daily workout.
The certified trainers at JustFit use scientific research and principles to help their clients achieve their goals. Based on the belief that “being realistic is the most commonly traveled path to mediocrity,” trainers design workout plans for clients based on the body’s three primary energy sources: the ATP/phosphocreatine system, the glycolytic system, and the oxidative system. By targeting each group, they can maximize calorie burning and help clients build muscle, burn fat, or train for specific sports.
