At CrossFit Black Storm, trainers forgo boring, repetitive bouts on treadmills and ellipticals for intense strength and endurance exercises that push students to perform at the peak of their ability. The workouts are led by a staff of knowledgeable coaches who draw from an extensive range of training and experience that includes certifications in CrossFit, weightlifting, personal training, and CPR/first aid. The ever-changing regimens feature exercises tailored to the abilities of each student, and on any given day, participants might find themselves hoisting heavy weights, swinging kettle bells, and leaping onto boxes, all for the sake of building strength and boosting speed, coordination, and power.
At Big Joe's Little Gym, it's not uncommon to see clients swinging sledgehammers, hoisting barrels, and upending tires. It's all part of the gym's intensive roster of classes, which range from sweat-inducing boot camp and strength conditioning sessions to one-on-one personal training. To ensure folks get the most out of their visits, personal trainers give free consultations that help formulate a fitness plan tailored to personal goals, experience, and astrological sign. For solo endeavors, the 6,500 square foot gym packs the floor with dumbbells, treadmills, foam rollers, and resistance bands.
Six days a week, CrossFit 623?s coaches gather at the warehouse-style gym to guide members into better bodies. The coaches?dubbed the Dream Team?make sure people squat and snatch using the correct form, and flip oversized tires and canoes without pulling a muscle. They guide people through workouts steeped in functional fitness with such equipment as rowing machines, gymnastics rings, and plyometric boxes. Each exercise is easily tailored to ensure members remain challenged, no matter their physical abilities.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, TITLE Boxing Club
maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across more than 20 states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people?s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
The experienced staff at JAB Fitness help patrons sculpt shapely physiques, imparting strength and discipline with a curriculum of fight-inspired class styles. Focusing on high-energy combat-sports training, instructors enhance each session with adrenaline-pumping music, motivational pep talks, and punching bags that bear a striking resemblance to your fifth-grade bully?s henchmen. Besides muay thai, jiu jitsu, and kickboxing boot camps, the group classes also include heart-pounding spin sessions and boot camps. Other classes, such as hot yoga and suspension training, may be less energetic, but they are just as essential for whole-body fitness.
