At IS Tribe CrossFit, a team of qualified trainers help students of all skill levels and body types exceed their personal fitness goals with team-oriented workouts that build functional strength, endurance, and lean, rippling muscle. Rather than sentencing their classes to boring bouts on a treadmill, instructors keep their pupils engaged and ready to face any challenge with ever-changing interactive Workouts of the Day (or WODs), which include tasks such as flipping tires, hoisting barbells, and throwing weight machines into the sun. During one-hour workouts, members build bonds with their fellow trainees, pushing each other to crush their self-doubt and boost their confidence as they build muscle and burn fat.
Anthony Malta and Tyler Wilcox—the co-owners and coaches at CrossFit ASAP—both have CrossFit Level 1 certifications and strength-and-conditioning experience that dates back to high school. At CrossFit ASAP, they use friendly motivation and CrossFit’s dogma of varied, functional fitness to help clients get in shape. Workouts of the Day (WODs) often incorporate exercises such as weightlifting, interval training, body-weight exercises, and less conventional methods such as sled pushing and kettlebell training.
The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the 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. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
One class style stands out on Morgan Hill Crossfit’s schedule: Kids’ Crossfit. Owner Skip Rebozzi wanted to open a gym where his children, avid athletes, would feel comfortable working out as well. Regardless of students’ ages, Rebozzi and his staff lead Crossfit classes comprised of moves that scale to challenge exercisers of all stripes while toning the entire body.
Eclipse Tanning & Fitness tackles bodily beauty from a variety of angles. Six private tanning rooms and a full line of tanning lotions work to help clients achieve a summer glow. A team of personal trainers motivates clients to reach their fitness goals, and a certified massage therapist works to relieve stress and muscular tension. No matter which of the services clients come in for, they can take advantage of Eclipse Tanning & Fitness's complimentary towel and water-bottle service to wipe sweat off of their foreheads and rehydrate the hamsters that power the treadmill.
The certified CrossFit trainers at Lamorinda CrossFit want their clients to be in the best shape of their lives. Whether their goal is weight loss, building strength, or becoming more athletic and agile in general, the center has everything members need to become stronger, faster, and leaner. Using everyday, functional movements, such as squats, lifts, and pulling, in conjunction with weights and gymnastics, CrossFit works all the major muscle groups for a full-body workout. Clients begin by taking four Basics classes, after which they move onto the Workout of the Day, which can be customized for each individual’s fitness level. Members can choose to work out alone or in one of Lamorinda CrossFit’s classes, which offer the motivational boost of group energy.
