The inspiring trainers with MetaBody lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Fun sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment ideal for both beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use your instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Since the pass sets a five-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimen by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

Pro Tip: Other gyms use machines. CrossFit builds them.
At its core, CrossFit is about keeping participants engaged every time they hit the gym, creating a well-rounded athlete through a series of high-intensity, functional exercises. At Undisputed Strength & Conditioning, clients will go through the motions of everything from weigh-lifting and sprinting to plyometrics and jump-roping, working every part of the body to tone muscles while shedding weight. These functional workouts are designed to be of use in every day life, improving overall health and decreasing the possibility for injury.
Instead of treadmills, you run on the floor. Instead of step machines, you climb or hop atop plyometric boxes. Instead of complicated equipment, you pull yourself up on the rack of bars built into the wall. These are a few of the ways CrossFit My Town differs from run-of-the-mill gyms. They teach CrossFit, which requires functional movements, and they don't want fancy machines and gear getting in the way of that. The staff constantly varies those functional movements and asks their charges to perform routines with speed and intensity. Their purpose is to prep everyone for any physical activity they may engage in, including running marathons or hoisting a bag of dog food. With all the rope-climbing, lunges, weightlifting, and more, they also want to ensure safety. To do that, they lead CrossFit Concepts classes that introduce fundamentals and teach proper technique.
Inside the CrossFit WorkHouse facility, an arsenal of barbells, kettle bells, medicine balls, benches, and truck tires await exercisers willing to take the necessary steps to achieve their fitness goals. A crew of certified Level 1 coaches leads the classes, correcting technique and shouting encouragement while clients perform the Workout of the Day. Folks challenge themselves with new, functional-movement workout every day. This builds every major muscle group, helping people carry out everyday tasks, such as lugging groceries or dodging crossbow bolts. Since the exercises are scalable?meaning they can be adjusted to fit everyone from senior citizens just starting out to elite athletes?all students who exert themselves can expect improvements in strength, balance, power, endurance, and agility. While CrossFit is the primary offering, the WorkHouse also offers classes such as yoga, Zumba, and boot camps.
CrossFit Ursa is owned by a military veteran who aims to foster a sense of community and support with clients. To that end, small group workouts are capped at 10 people, and a personal trainer provides one-on-one attention to help people achieve their individual fitness goals. Workouts combine high-intensity intervals with functional movements that you perform in everyday life, such as holding groceries or trying to pick up a quarter that is glued to the ground.
