Certified in CrossFit, Strongman, and Olympic lifting, experienced owner Andrew Essig leads the team at CrossFit Gambit. Together they teach the CrossFit system to enhance all 10 fitness factors, including endurance, strength, speed, and agility. Through intense exercises that employ functional movements while using a variety of weights and tools, instructors prep their charges for every kind of physical activity—from sports to work-related activities to daily chores, such as hammer throwing an empty gallon of milk into the recycling bin. They keep everyone engaged through positive reinforcement and team spirit, and they change up routines daily to avoid the drag of repetition.
CrossFit Valley Park's instructors combine lifting, gymnastics, and resistance training to achieve full-body fitness. They implement a variety of tools, such as rowing machines, kettlebells, and medicine balls, and mix up routines daily. Changing exercises keeps boredom away, and the array of motions used preps participants for all physical endeavors. It's a system that can easily be scaled to each member's fitness level, as well. Before starting courses, instructors conduct comprehensive introduction processes that include a beginners' class and an evaluation of clients' current condition and movement limitations. They also keep classes small to ensure everyone receives detailed instructions and personal attention.
At CrossFit MetroEast, certified CrossFit coaches design different workouts each day, which blend exercises from various fitness disciplines such as gymnastics, weightlifting, plyometrics, cardio, and strength training. Athletes may be tasked with lifting weights, running, or rowing, or working out with equipment such as ropes, tires, and kettlebells.
The team of trainers and nutritional specialists at Accelerate shape up bulk builders and pound shredders with a systematic regimen focusing on physical fitness, psychological well-being, and nutrition. During the introductory consultation, clients discuss and set training goals with a wellness coach before undergoing a functional-movement screening to discover any muscular imbalances and vestigial extra thumbs. Six training sessions blend the fruits of the consultation and screening into a four-week workout smoothie adapted to each trainee's goals. Sessions are semiprivate, accommodating up to three comrades in arms, legs, and cores. Participants also receive a 30-day meal plan designed by a registered dietitian to fuel challenged physiques with essential nutrients and energizing formulas.
While CrossFit’s mix of strength, cardio, and gymnastics training leads to full-body workouts, CrossFit 70’s certified trainers love the system for the camaraderie it fosters. All classes feature everyday movements to prep participants for daily activities, but they also feature motivational instructors and peers that push each other to reach their goals. Workouts change daily, side-stepping the boredom of broken-record routines. CrossFit 70 appreciates the scalability of CrossFit as well, which means they can tailor each workout to suit all fitness and experience levels.
