CrossFit LifeForce prides itself as a community of like-minded fitness enthusiasts, which, collectively, pushes individuals to meet and exceed their personal goals. With an expansive schedule that features classes six days per week—including during the evenings on most days—the facility welcomes seasoned exercisers and beginners alike. During each session, one of CrossFit LifeForce’s coaches leads groups through a WOD, or workout of the day, which gets posted to the website daily.
The instructors at Northeast Academy of Martial Arts reveal the keys to self-improvement by way of karate and mixed-martial-arts programs, as well as through a variety of fitness classes. Karate lessons are divided by age and ability level, challenging kids, adults, and cowardly lions with total-body workouts designed to build both mental and physical toughness. The academy's MMA training blends elements of Brazilian jujitsu, muay thai kickboxing, and other disciplines into one well-oiled program. Drop-in fitness classes, meanwhile, such as aerobic kickboxing and cardio training, provide change-of-pace workouts on a weekly basis.
CrossFit Jolt’s athletes stay positively charged thanks to workouts drawn up from CrossFit’s philosophy of constantly varied functional movements. Each Workout of the Day (WOD) is different and pulls moves from a cache of exercises that includes rowing, cardio, strength training, weightlifting, and gymnastics. It’s rare to find kettlebells and medicine balls laying around CrossFit Jolt, because the athletes are regularly wielding these objects as they hurl them through the air or use them to add an extra degree of difficulty to squats, presses, and lunges. Other times, CrossFit disciples might be performing body-weight exercises such as chin-ups and pushups.
Every day, the certified trainers at CrossFit Cetro guide students through a different Workout of the Day. Based on CrossFit’s philosophy of varied, functional fitness, these workouts often blend disciplines such as cardio, weightlifting, strength training, gymnastics, and plyometrics. In the CrossFit Cetro gym, which is equipped more like a fitness playground, athletes might perform squats and rowing one day and dips on suspended rings the next. No matter the workout, trainers believe that each client’s needs are the same as a professional athlete's; the only difference is intensity and volume, which they can scale for each individual’s fitness level.
An athlete his whole life, Jay Jairdullo’s done everything from high-school wrestling and college football to mud runs and long-distance charity bike rides. That wide range of experience, plus a degree in exercise science, made CrossFit a perfect fit for him. It’s a system that borrows techniques and exercises from the entire fitness world in order to develop the speed, agility, and power necessary to engage in every kind of physical activity. As a certified CrossFit trainer, he leads intense daily workouts that feature a variety of equipment, such as kettlebells and plyometric boxes, as well as functional movements, including pushing and lifting. He can also personalize routines to each participant’s fitness level and starts all beginners out with a foundations course.
CrossFit workouts are not meant to be easy, though they are meant to be accessible to students of any fitness level. They incorporate functional movements alongside elements of track, gymnastics, and weightlifting, encouraging students to push themselves through sequences of pulling, squatting, jumping, throwing, carrying, sprinting, and levitating. Yet every drop of sweat falls in a safe and supportive group environment. Coaches Carlo Profico and Keakahiwalani Landschoot help each attendee scale the load as well as the intensity of the exercises, creating workouts that are challenging, yet doable. Increased strength and stamina is a given over time, but the coaches also hope to inspire their students mentally and emotionally by helping them overcome the workouts’ physical challenges and mid-rep pop quizzes.
