A functional-training studio staffed by experienced CrossFit coaches and former college athletes, Integrated Fitness Training transforms exercisers of all levels into fit, focused athletes. Barbells, gymnastics rings, and rowing machines welcome students to a 3,000-square-foot training floor, where they cultivate the type of strength and coordination they need to meet their fitness goals or slow-dance with a manatee. A variety of group fitness classes matches exercisers with boot camps, scalable CrossFit classes, and cardio-heavy kettlebell workouts. Like a pair of sharpied-on eyebrows, CrossFit workouts increase intensity, incorporating gymnastics-inspired moves such as burpees, muscle-ups, and handstand pushups.
Inside CrossFit Steel Town, stacks of weight plates and patches of artificial turf establish the gym as a serious workout space. Around the gym, instructors lead intense workouts that focus on functional-movement exercises, from pushes and pulls to jumps and sprints. Exercise regimens change each day to keep both bodies and minds activated.
Lindsey Hanlon, the owner of CrossFit Invigorate, ascended to the level of NCAA Division 1 National Qualifier in the breaststroke, which further fueled her passion for physical fitness. Now, at CrossFit Invigorate, she leads athletes and fitness disciples toward their fitness and wellness goals according to CrossFit’s principles of varied, functional strength. In their gym, which is referred to as the “Box,” classes sweat through a different Workout of the Day (WOD) each day. WODs are always different, but often include exercises that range from weightlifting and running to rowing, kettlebell training, and gymnastics-inspired exercises.
