Head coach Mark Koehl draws on his experience as a competitive Ironman triathlete and a certified personal trainer to lead exercisers through challenging CrossFit workouts. Mark and the team of coaches lead clients through WOD's featuring kettlebells, dumbells, and tinkerbells. The center also performs chiropractic care and massage to help taxed bodies recover from intense exercise.
The staff at Colorado Sports and Fitness includes doctors, trainers, therapists, and nutrition specialists. These professionals offer a variety of fitness and health services, including personal training and nutrition supplementation. They also lead "Crush 20" group fitness classes, which, like the television show made about each person's life, condense everything important into 20-minute sessions.
The coaches at CrossFit 6th Avenue are living proof that a WOD—Workout of the Day—can benefit everyone, regardless of individual exercisers' fitness goals. That's because CrossFit's exercises are scalable by intensity, not by form. Students of all experience levels can perform CrossFit weight lifts and cardio drills, and the shared workout can lead to a strong sense of camaraderie.
The coaches at CrossFit Encounter follow the philosophy of athlete Chris Spealler: "to teach people to move better through practice; to use novelty and intensity to create a fun environment of constant progress; to maintain education as our primary goal for both coaches and clients." That's why they ensure their students have a great time even as they conquer titanic physical struggles. Combining body-weight movements, interval training, and multi-joint weightlifting into unexpected daily workouts, they keep fitness regimens varied and engaging. And their programs include workouts for people of all experience levels, too. While their wards work out, they shouldn't be surprised to see a tiny coach zipping around—the youngest member of the team only deadlifts 35 pounds, but that's not bad for someone born in 2011.
Koko FitClub condenses the expertise and guidance of an entire gym's worth of instructors into a tiny device, which accompanies club members to their workout stations. These minuscule e-coaches begin each session with a FitCheck analysis that privately diagnoses a member's body fat and lean muscle tissue percentage. Using the result of the FitCheck, the digital training system creates a customized strength and cardio plan, and a nutrition program to support it. They machines even provide guidance at each station, prescribing proper form, pace, and when you are ready to pull off a muscle tank top. All of this training is effectively crammed into a 30-minute visit, and results are posted online for members to peruse in the form of quick, handy numbers or progress-tracking charts.
At CrossFit Unbroken, visitors immerse themselves in challenging, ever-changing WODs, or Workouts of the Day, which are designed to build strength and agility while spurring weight loss. Routines constantly rotate to keep participants from getting bored and fleeing the building to chase the ice cream truck. Classes may include kettlebell swings, pullups, 400-meter dashes, burpees, squats, and lunges. The arduous nature of the workouts also helps to boost camaraderie between members, an aspect not always found at traditional gyms.
