CrossFit Great Ones’ coaches believe in the CrossFit system because its functional-movement exercises performed with high intensity readies their students for all physical activities. Through its varied exercises and equipment, it also develops every muscle group while enhancing speed, agility, and power. The reason the coaches love the program, however, is the team spirit it evokes as coaches and students alike motivate each other to achieve their fitness goals. They further nurture that sense of community by sponsoring local charity events, volunteering, and donating a portion of new membership dues to charities.
9Round gym takes its name from its signature kickboxing workout, a continuous circuit of nine workout stations perpetually overseen by personal trainers. Students jump into whichever station happens to be occurring whenever they show up to the class, the trainers always ready to start coaching. The workout takes about thirty minutes, and involves heavy bags, speed bags, medicine balls, and, of course, punching and kicking. The Margate location features shiny black leather equipment, which only loses its gleam by being repeatedly pounded up against the exposed brick walls.
