There are two things that a newcomer notices about CrossFit XSI: how hard the exercises look, and how much fun the exercisers are having. The reason behind both those observations comes from the trainers who lead athletes of all fitness levels through intense, full-body exercises. They structure the workouts around a variety of movements, all of which can be scaled to accommodate all levels, and they encourage a camaraderie among students that keeps people coming back.
Attending CrossFit Lehi?s group Crossfit classes doesn?t mean you don?t get one-on-one attention. In fact, the goal of the certified coaches is to tailor each Workout of the Day to each participant, giving them a challenging workout based on their fitness level and abilities. The coaches also offer classes for women only, and their special classes help kids as young as 5 improve their gross motor skills, including balanced running. The coaches focus on conditioning high school athletes as well.
