Achieving the title of CrossFit Level 1 coach hasn’t stopped CrossFit Survival’s owner, Shannon Franklin, from learning more. In recent years, she has received CrossFit certifications for nutrition, football, kids’ training, Olympic weightlifting, and running. Shannon’s well-rounded background and enthusiasm for fitness drives her facility in La Crescenta, where she and her staff hold group classes that incorporate CrossFit’s workout of the day, a daily series of high-intensity, functional exercises such as pushups, power lifts, box jumps, and sprints. Each workout is personalized to the exerciser’s abilities as opposed to the abilities of a favorite superhero.
Crossfit Array's coaches are committed to helping students reach their fitness goals. They lead students through energetic group CrossFit classes and intense one-on-one training sessions. Customization and personal attention are guaranteed in both. To bolster the fitness programs, coaches also focus on nutrition, providing a well-rounded path to overall health and optimal fitness.

Exercisers can expect two things at CrossFit Crown City: variety and intensity. That's because co-owners Peter Danenberg and Tom Scoble and their staff of fellow CrossFit Level 1?certified instructors adhere to CrossFit's workout of the day. The ever-changing workout pits muscles against a series of functional exercises such as push-ups, pull-ups, and squats. In order to maximize the results, the trainers encourage exercisers to complete the workout as vigorously as possible. Augmenting matters, the studio keeps an arsenal of Rogue Fitness equipment, famously used to train the "Hang in There" cat.
Though the CrossFit exercise technique has steamrolled the nation, CrossFit Madre is family place through and through. It's an amalgamation of Peter Sandford's background in hapkido and weight conditioning and his wife Rocki's masters degree in public health and nutrition from UCLA. During intimate group classes, the instructors lead students in workouts that range from high-energy cardio and bar work to kettlebell weight training. This personalized combination of techniques helps clients set individual goals to tone physiques and promote endurance.
