Before opening his own fitness studio, Nick Scott just liked going to the gym with his friends. After hearing about the benefits of CrossFit workouts, Nick drew from his background in training military and law-enforcement personnel to lead his crew though fast-paced workouts that were a welcome change of pace from traditional cardio and weight training. There was a problem, though: the local gyms where they would work out would kick them out either because their workouts were too intense or because they were drawing away the business’s personal-training clients. This is what inspired Scott to get officially certified as a CrossFit instructor and open Fit2Fight, where he and his fellow certified coaches lead classes up to seven days a week.
Their workouts of the day always change, though students can count on sweating through exercises that develop one or more of the 10 fitness domains target by CrossFit: cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. They fold martial-arts disciplines such as muay thai, judo, and karate into their workouts, as well as CrossFit’s requisite gymnastic and weightlifting techniques that ready participants to walk across a balance beam or throw old balance beams into a landfill. They also offer personal training for workouts that are equally as intense and target individual fitness goals.
