How likely are you to survive a zombie apocalypse? It's certainly something worth considering, and the trainers at Zastc gym think they have a pretty good chance. That's because Zastc stands for Zombie Apocalypse Survival Training Center, and they're all in the business of making sure their patrons become the type of healthy strong folks who could successfully battle the undead and win. That's accomplished through circuit training workouts that keep muscles guessing burpees, squats, push ups, rowing, and all manner of other functional motions. In addition to group workouts, personal trainers help patrons target specific goals.
With its Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, and Cardio Kickboxing classes, So-Cal Martial Arts Center gives its clients a choice of routes to one common destination: fitness. Most classes combine self-defense movements with a fast-paced, high-energy tempo, pushing sweat glands into overdrive as groups punch and kick their way to improved health. CrossFit classes, meanwhile, put participants to the test as they complete Workouts of the Day designed to build broad, functional fitness?exactly what superheroes have that's commonly referred to as their "super power."
The staff members at Fierce Crossfit are fueled by the desire to transform their clients' bodies, incorporating CrossFit exercises that mix elements of various disciplines to provide effective, results-oriented workouts. CrossFit-certified trainers equipped with degrees in kinesiology help clients to shred calories with moves designed to improve endurance, strength, power, agility, speed, coordination, balance, flexibility, posture, accuracy, and combat skills to use against clingy couch cushions. Workouts often incorporate muscle-ups, box jumps, snatches, rows, and dead lifts. Based on the principle of “universal scalability,” CrossFit workouts are designed to be accessible to pupils of all fitness levels.
CrossFit can be scaled to an 8-year-old kid's abilities just as well as an 80-year-old grandmother's. That's a big reason why CrossFit Heroism's trainers love the system, which employs a variety of functional movements performed at a high intensity—as high as clients can take. Some days they're lifting barbells and scaling ropes, on others they're flipping tractor tires and performing sprints. The mix of motions and exercises annihilates calories, molds every muscle group in the body, and preps participants for whatever manner of physical activity they might choose to undertake.
