CrossFit Newnan at FITT Warehouse's trainers, Travis Self and Dawn Borrelli, never lead the same workout twice. Their CrossFit exercises break past fitness plateaus and boredom with high-intensity challenges that change daily, with a focus on ramping up functional movements such as pushing, squatting, and pulling. Travis and Dawn are mindful of form, ensuring that exercises are safe and effective from first movement to last; they can also adjust the intensity for any fitness level. While they've stocked the FITT Warehouse with training equipment such as pull-up bars, jump ropes, kettlebells, and climbing ropes, they also sometimes head to a local park for a change of scenery and a chance to pose for local topiary artists.
Each group session fosters a spirit of camaraderie and friendly competition, motivating exercisers to put their best tire-flip forward. Travis and Dawn stay squarely in each member’s corner, keeping track of their progress and offering nutritional support as needed.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. 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 yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
