CrossFit Captivate’s head coach and owner, Corey Bibolet, serves as a living example of how CrossFit’s commitment to functional movement can contribute to bettering bodies for all types of activities—not just squats and lunges. He began practicing CrossFit in 2008 as a means to build strength and spice up his break-dancing routines and has been dedicated to the fitness medium ever since. A coach for more than three years, Corey holds several CrossFit competition titles, and he travels the country to attend training seminars and find new ways to get his pupils motivated. Today, he and his staff of co-trainers teach more than 30 classes per week in their blue-walled gym equipped with weights, hanging rings, and kettlebells.

As a new mother, Tanya Rose Bordner found herself suffering from the severe headaches, hormonal imbalances, and emotional lows that often accompany motherhood. She knew she needed to take better care of herself and decided to try Bikram yoga. Though skeptical at first, she found herself hooked after one class when she discovered that she felt better physically, emotionally, and spiritually, and she eventually decided to become a Bikram-yoga instructor.
Now, Tanya and her team of certified instructors—all of whom have trained for several hundred hours—strive to share the benefits that Tanya felt in that first class with others. Using two breathing exercises designed to circulate oxygenated blood, these instructors lead students through 26 postures that carve out toned muscles and pump up flexibility. The classes take place in a 105-degree room with a recently renovated rubber floor, and after each session, staff members encourage students to press an ice-cream cone or the provided frozen lavender towels against their heated brows.
Mental and physical well-being receive equal focus at CrossFit Sierra Nevada. In a supportive, community-minded environment, trainers cater to the goals and capabilities of every student, regardless of their age or fitness level. By helping members tailor the load and intensity of each workout, the trainers ensure that everyone finds a regimen that presents a suitable, safe challenge. The universal accessibility of the CrossFit regimen is aided by its emphasis on functional exercises that more accurately mimic everyday movements.
Workouts incorporate ever-changing combinations of pull-ups, squats, kettlebell swings, sprints, rope climbs, and other similar drills. During beginner-level Foundation courses, trainers introduce newcomers to the workout method with an emphasis on proper form and technique. Additionally, CrossFit Sierra Nevada offers classes specifically designed to get children active and develop coordination using age-appropriate exercises.
