CrossFit Garwood?s certified coaches don?t just build athletes?they create fighters who can conquer the physical and emotional challenges of everyday life. Exercisers of all levels flock to the 8,000-square-foot facility for functional training drills practiced by police academies, military forces, and professional alligator wrestlers. During the workout of the day, they spur one another on through kettlebell swings, weightlifting moves, and muscle-ups on a Rogue pull-up system. Some days, they dart across a 40-yard track, on others they bound across turf like a mob of rugby-playing kangaroos. One hour On Ramp classes, help beginners hone exercises such as box jumps and ball slams before plunging into the full-fledged program. To make trips to the gym as convenient as possible, CrossFit Garwood and its partner facility, Gold Medal Fitness, teem with amenities such as lockers, showers, and childcare services.
The supportive, motivational coaching team at CrossFit Westfield leads exercisers into the gritty world of CrossFit, a high-intensity strength and conditioning program used worldwide to train police officers, martial artists, military units, and elite st. bernards. After completing on ramp—a four-session course that teaches newbies CrossFit's nine basic movements—patrons can enlist in regular 45-minute routines, which feature an arsenal of functional movements that mirror everyday actions, such as pulling, pushing, lifting, throwing, and making breakfast.
While it's intense, CrossFit scales to challenge exercisers of all stripes, and Westfield’s instructors can tone down or turn up any workout depending on a person's fitness level. With continued practice, CrossFit participants will see improvement in 10 different fitness categories, including cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, coordination, and agility. Classes are held every day except Sunday (click here for the schedule).
How do you make CrossFit's notorious workout of the day even more challenging? Well, judging from this video on CrossFit 135's website, you make students complete the squats, body presses, and other functional movements upside down.
Regardless of whether you find yourself inverted, upright, or floating in midair, you'll get an intense workout at this innovative fitness studio in Clark. And though words like "intense" sound scary, they shouldn't; CrossFit's workouts can be scaled and modified to anyone's fitness abilities.
