In Block Crossfit's 5,000-square-foot gym, certified trainers create a motivating and welcoming environment while teaching a system that anyone can learn. The inclusiveness of CrossFit is what drew owners Joe and Chris to CrossFit in the first place. They wanted to create a place where a sense of community could blossom, as well as fitness. As they perform functional movements at a high intensity, encouragement to reach finish lines and meet goals abound from both trainers and students. Besides that positive reinforcement, they keep everyone engaged by changing routines daily and avoiding the boredom of repetition.
Owner Jeremiah Head brings 20 years of coaching and 7 years of CrossFit-training experience to Zero Gravity CrossFit. He and his team of trainers motivate groups of exercisers as they lead them through intense CrossFit programs.
Although they all come from different backgrounds, the coaches at CrossFit Covert agree on the best part of every workout: the community. Each workout of the day challenges its participants to lift weights and complete exercises for functional fitness. The intensity of the routine varies according to who's doing it, but the movements remain the same. The camaraderie is likewise shared?everyone encourages everyone else to finish their reps and come back for more.
With its bright yellow accents and open floorspace, the gym welcomes visitors of all ages. Many of its classes have babysitters scheduled at the same time, so parents can bring their children. Also on the schedule are women's boot-camp classes, kids' classes, and Saturday yoga sessions.
CrossFit Unforgiven's team of certified trainers lead clients on the rippling, flexing road to health, steeling muscles with dead lifts, pushups, running, and pull-ups. Individual-specified workouts begin with weight-free technique training and focus on building physical, metaphysical, and mental strength.
The trainers at Kingdom 113 CrossFit foster a supportive, team-spirited atmosphere during all classes. They know that training's tough, but they also know a little motivation from peers and instructors can go a long way toward achieving goals. Their classes focus on a system of constantly varied functional movements performed at a high intensity. To ensure everyone can participate, they scale workouts to suit fitness and skill levels. And they never do the same workout twice, switching up routines daily to keep boredom at bay. Additionally, they offer coed classes and women's-only classes and ease all new students into the program with a foundations course.
Combining the individual attention of personal training with the supportive environment of a group class, CrossFit Awaken's instructors lead workouts designed to provide an accessible challenge for students of all fitness levels. They provide feedback throughout each session, ensuring that everyone practices safe, proper form while allowing attendees to scale the load and intensity of each exercise as they see fit. Each high-intensity workout is designed to help patrons improve their functional movements in every-day life?such as lifting, running, throwing, and jumping?with a combination of exercises to enhance their strength, stamina, and flexibility. And although every workout begins with stretching and a brief warm-up, no two workouts are ever the same. One day, a workout might include squats to help guests travel quickly up stairs, and the next it might include medicine-ball tosses to help them hoist heavy objects.
However, the CrossFit regimen doesn't focus on physical fitness alone. The workouts also promote healthy minds and bodies by helping students push themselves to new heights and develop the mental fortitude needed to make healthy lifestyle changes.
