Clients at CrossFit DPC have a knack for the unconventional—rowing, tire flipping, and dips on suspended rings are just a few exercises they might perform during a workout. Trainers blend these moves with other fitness disciplines such as plyometrics, weightlifting, and interval training to create a different Workout of the Day, or WOD, each day. Designed to promote variable, functional fitness, instructors can scale the workouts by experience level so that beginner, intermediate, and elite athletes can all participate.
At CrossFit 19North, exercisers cycle through six-week sessions of muscle-exhausting workouts of the day. Each day presents a two-fold routine consisting of barbell strength training and metabolic conditioning. Trainers vary the load, duration, and movement in workouts to keep muscles changing at a consistently rapid pace, no matter where their clients begin on the fitness spectrum.
Tampa CrossBoot's trainers invite students of all body types, skill levels, and ages to take control of their health through positive, team-centric outdoor workout camps. During classes, pupils employ a mix of cross-training and boot-camp techniques to boost speed, balance, functional strength, and agility, all the skills needed to become the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Workouts take place in nearby parks and green spaces so exercisers can breathe in fresh air as they burn off excess calories. Regimens allow participants to train at their own paces, scaling upward in difficulty as they introduce their muscles and cardiovascular systems to new, healthy challenges.
The certified personal trainers at Workout Time LLC help their clients reach peak physical condition during private and group training sessions. They design workouts best suited to each exerciser's fitness level and goals, combining cardio and strength training. Exercises incorporate a variety of equipment, such as free weights and stability balls.
The trainers at CrossFit Malicious focus each workout of the day on functional movement rather than unnecessary muscle bulking and flexibility training done merely to save money when shipping oneself via ground carrier. Each class begins with an emphasis on proper technique to prevent injury and optimize each exercise. Instructors modify workouts to varying fitness levels, but the intensity never subsides, with students supporting one another in an empowering group environment. The workout gear used during each class is completely devoid of complex mechanical contraptions and reflects the minimalist surroundings, with stacks of weight plates for lifting or pushing, pull-up bars, and plyometric boxes.
Though many workers-out desire want a gym that feels like a home away from home, complete with saunas, juice bars, and tanning beds, Elite Strength & Conditioning caters to a different class of gym-goers. Inside the spartan space, every inch is dedicated to the most effective, functional conditioning equipment, from coiled metal chains to hulking tractor tires. During guided workouts and open-gym sessions, members push themselves to their limits, burning through calories at breakneck speed while layering on muscle. The process helps clients improve athletic performance and prepare for an apocalypse that leaves behind nothing but kettlebells with which to build houses.
