At Crossfit Diadem, CrossFit Level 1-certified coach Jen Bunnell and her staff push exercisers through ever-changing, high-intensity CrossFit workouts. The challenging routines typically center around a blend of cardiovascular exercises and functional body weight moves like push-ups, pull-ups, and squats, which can be scaled for all fitness levels. The classes, which are typically one-hour in length, might also incorporate kettlebells, dumbbells, rings, and even sandbags, and aim to help students reach their personal fitness goals while also improving their strength, stamina, agility, balance, and coordination. To help reduce injuries during workouts, the studio has also teamed with Doctor of Physical Therapy Deniz Armagan, who can give members complimentary evaluations and new names to go with their new bodies.

The year 1986 was a health- and fitness-focused one. Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight boxing champion in history, smoking was banned on all forms of public transportation, and Being-Fit opened its doors. The gym sought to supply its members with everything they needed to reach their personal fitness goals. Though its equipment has been overhauled, Being-Fit’s mission hasn't changed in the intervening two decades.

Today, the gym's trainers host more than 30 varieties of group fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates, kickboxing, and Zumba. When not in class, students can take advantage of the cardio theater, where favorite shows and video clips of kittens wiping out on treadmills play constantly as people jog in place. Additionally, the gym’s personal trainers construct individualized workouts during one-on-one sessions, equipping members with repeatable exercises crafted to address personal fitness goals.

Q&A with Laura, Owner And Coach

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
The backbone of CrossFit TurnPoint is our community, which inspires members to come in and sweat together despite how tired they are feeling or how hard the workout appears to be. Our members support one another through every workout by encouraging each other to fight for another rep or a heavier weight.

What's the most radical physical transformation you've seen a client make?
Most beginners who walk in our doors are often intimidated by the heavy weights and the unfamiliar workout movements; however, in just a few weeks those beginners are now the ones cheering on and encouraging the first time visitor. There is a change in both their physical body and their self-esteem. Within a few weeks they are lifting heavier weights, running faster, and doing these things with confidence in themselves and their ability.

Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
We offer shower facilities so that clients can wash up after a workout, if they need to.

Pilates enthusiasts can choose from mat, springboard, reformer, and circuit class options for their core-crunching and lean-muscle sculpting.
