"If it's important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse." That's the mantra by which CrossFit Outrival head trainer Kelli Rossow lives. And the philosophy has served her well, as evidenced by her CrossFit Level 1 and Russian Kettlebell Challenge certifications, her career as an MMA competitor, and even her reign as the Battle of the Bay's Bikini Contest winner in 2009. At CrossFit Outrival, she and fellow instructor Jennifer Rothwell refuse to accept excuses. By facilitating camaraderie among their CrossFit students, they create a supportive environment for them to get fit, despite the challenging nature of functional-movement CrossFit classes.
Patricia Regner, a devoted mother with an MBA, has something else up her sleeve: she’s also the founder and owner of Miss Pole. After deciding that her life needed some serious changes, Patricia enrolled in pole-dancing classes and was so inspired, so enthusiastic, and so dramatically altered that she decided every woman should have the opportunity to feel confident, strong, and sexy. Hence Miss Pole was born.
At Miss Pole, she leads classes that explores fitness and physically challenging aspects of pole dancing fitness. She leads beginner, intermediate, and advanced pole-dancing classes that cover hundreds of moves that tone the entire body. Other classes include lap dancing, burlesque, and sexy/sassy stretching.
At CrossFit Kenosha, workouts transform exercisers of all levels into fit and confident champions. Encouraging coaches rally groups during functional fitness drills that build speed, power, and stamina with tools such as jump ropes, kettlebells, and gymnastics rings. A team-like bond forms as exercisers cheers one another through challenging routines that can be scaled to different levels of strength and endurance.
Weightlifting moves and body-weight exercises cultivate lean muscle mass, which helps the body to burn calories as efficiently as possible. Filled with cardiovascular challenges such as sprinting and rowing, the workouts can also shrink waistlines and bolster heart health. Like a snowman's fingerprints, no two workouts are alike, which helps to keep exercisers engaged and motivated.
