CrossFit Caliber’s CEO and head coach Arnel Delosreyes has firsthand knowledge of the transformative power of the CrossFit method. After training for years in traditional gyms, Delosreyes thought he had achieved a certain level of fitness, but his first CrossFit class gave him a new perspective on the matter. Inspired, the father, husband, and lawyer added a new title to his resume: certified CrossFit trainer.
Today, Delosreyes and his fellow CrossFit Caliber coaches lead students through workouts that follow CrossFit’s dogma of varied, functional fitness. The explosive sessions blend different fitness elements, such as strength training, cardio, gymnastics, and plyometrics. Like a page-a-day calendar’s page, workouts change every day, but always focus on intense conditioning.
The hot-pink walls aren’t the only element of Studio Energia giving off an energetic vibe. Owner and fitness instructor Julie hops and twirls across the hardwood floor as she leads fast-paced Zumba routines set to catchy Latin music. Trained by the program's founder, Beto Perez, Julie personally guides all Zumba sessions, which include Zumbatomic classes designed especially for kids and Zumba Toning sessions that build muscle and fend off stray lacrosse balls using a weighted stick. The studio also keeps energy high by offering a seven-day-a-week schedule packed with Latin-dance lessons, kids' hip-hop classes, cardio kickboxing, and boot camps.

Their recipe is positive motivation and group fitness classes such as circuit training, athletic training, and boot camps, which work the entire body, not just the fitness glands. In addition, Sharon E. Avendano and Aaron Petrynek spearhead the facility's Elite Boxing Athletic Conditioning program.
