CrossFit Giant, in its fully equipped studio, challenges guests with high-energy workouts that change daily. The CrossFit technique, used by military special ops and police academies, is scaled by intensity and load. This allows the staff to accommodate students of all fitness levels, challenging the whole body with jump roping, squats, and sprints, the three of which should never be combined into one simultaneous maneuver.
At CrossFit SoBro, newcomers rest assured knowing they?re safe in the hands of owner Roberto Murichi, who brings CrossFit first-timers into the fold with detailed, progressive instruction adaptable to all fitness levels. The former Marine leads a team of instructors who emphasize CrossFit?s main tenets of power, speed, coordination, and agility; balancing this with an emphasis on teamwork and fostering a positive atmosphere. Classes forge well-rounded athletes through an emphasis on high-intensity, constantly varied workouts that integrate powerlifting with plyometrics, sprints, gymnastics, and kettlebells. CrossFitters also blend tabata training workouts, which emphasize eight-interval couplets made up of twenty seconds of furious work and ten seconds of rest.
At CrossFit Englewood, the certified instructors lead their charges in a different workout each day. All the exercises focus on prepping the body for everyday movements, incorporating exercises such as pushing, squatting, and lifting, which can be scaled to suit each participant's fitness level. In the team-training program, patrons can focus exclusively on strength and conditioning specific to the sport of their choice. To ensure participants are performing to their fullest abilities, they evaluate postures and prescribe corrective exercises. With performance psychology, the trainers motivate patrons to apply the benefits of CrossFit lessons to life challenges, such as being expected to brush their teeth every day.
Crossfit Giant is not a quiet place. Nor should it be. Here, the walls shake, the floors tremble, and the motivational urgings of instructors reverberate throughout the 5,000-square-foot facility. Here, certified CrossFit instructors lead 60-minute classes that incorporate elements of weightlifting, gymnastics, and track and field; from one moment to the next students might find themselves sprinting, throwing, squatting, and pulling. But they won't be sweating it out alone?they'll be working alongside other like-minded folks who share the same goal: to get in shape, and perhaps squeeze into an old dress or favorite fanny pack.
Classes include general CrossFit training, Olympic weightlifting, and gymnastics. But it's not all sound and stomp here. On the quieter side of the studio, instructors lead students through yoga classes, helping them improve flexibility, balance, and breath awareness. Crossfit Giant's facility also features spacious changing rooms, as well as onsite daycare.
Since its inception in 2000, CrossFit has amassed an army of dedicated participants that include everyone from pro athletes to stay-at-home moms. It's no surprise, then, that one of CrossFit's stated missions is "inclusiveness". Just because it accepts anyone regardless of experience, age, or fitness level doesn't mean it's easy, however. CrossFit Parsippany's array of ropes, truck tires, kettlebells, and cardio equipment await anyone with the willingness to exert themselves and commit to improved health. Inexperienced participants don't have to worry, though; instructors safely scale each Workout of the Day, which draws from sports such as gymnastics and Olympic powerlifting, to suit each individual's physical condition and ability. With continued effort, all participants will see marked improvements in everything from strength and power to balance and stamina, resulting in a better quality of life and the ability to play checkers with barbell plates.
