Along with shock-absorbent mats, cold steel, and astroturf, the trainers at CrossFit West built their gym on intensity and community. Passionate and certified trainers encourage students to take on more reps and heavier weights with each workout. Classes make use of the facility’s 19 weightlifting platforms, as well as suspended gymnast rings, rowing machines, and climbing ropes. Instructors can scale the workout's load and intensity to meet the needs of the student and use the same core routines for elderly students and active blue oxen. CrossFit West also offers specialized classes in weightlifting, advanced flexibility techniques, and competitive CrossFit team classes. The expansive facility also boasts an onsite massage therapist as well as children's play area equipped with toys, a television, and a DVD player.
