What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
You won't hear our students' landings. It's a little secret called "ninja noise." This helps keep impact low, and stealth high.
As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?
Coaches are legitimately certified to teach Parkour, holding multiple parkour certifications. We are expert momentum anticipators and course creators. We minimize risk through safety drills, multi-level skill progressions and strength milestones. [Instructors are] First Aid? and CPR-trained in case anything happens. However we have not had one serious injury in the three years we've been coaching due to our safety protocols.
What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?
Through our classes students can expect to experience life-changing techniques. Ranging from the simple truths of how to squat sustainably to how to traverse lava while having fun and collecting speed and style points.
Inside a newly constructed 7,000-square-foot facility, Dojo 3's certified and seasoned instructors lead students in a variety of fitness classes designed to burn calories and tone muscles. MixxedFit classes set high-energy dancing and bootcamp toning techniques to hit music to help students of all fitness levels and improve their health. While adult guests participate in kinesthetic renaissances, a watchful staffer supervises kids aged 3 and older as they amble around the kids' play area. The fitness center also features conveniences such as a changing room and ample parking, offering easy access that encourages patrons to fit workouts into their daily routines instead of fitting them into someone else's.
Nary a stationary bike or weight machine sits inside Renton City CrossFit. Instead, the gym is filled with pull-up bars, kettlebells, and barbells, and ample floor space welcomes people to work on squats, running, and jumping. Here, CrossFit-certified trainers customize workouts each day for clients, depending on whether they want to build strength, improve balance, or develop x-ray vision. Each workout is based around functional exercises that mimic normal day-to-day movements, and, for maximum benefit, the routines are constantly changing to keep the body guessing and avoid workout plateaus.

In 2005, Sili Kalepo and a friend started working out in an old warehouse; it was their solution to the complete lack of neighborhood gyms in Rainier Beach. Fortunately, the space suited their style of exercise pretty well, their programs caught on, and they started a gym. They became part of the non-profit Urban Impact, striving to promote healthier lifestyles in the community. Time treated them well, and in 2013 they relocated to a brand new facility on the ground floor of the Emerald City Commons, with their CrossFit program taking over the space next door.
These days, workouts incorporate a variety of agility, strength, and endurance training techniques. The routines can get pretty intense, but the trainers are on-hand to monitor maneuvers and ensure participants stay healthy. "We believe that all people have a threshold that is safe for their bodies to handle," says the CrossFit trainer. "All workouts can be modified to your intensity level and ability."
Every human body may be unique, but the basic patterns of our muscles and skeletons are almost universal. The fitness science of CrossFit relies on that uniformity in each of its exercises, which are designed to help bodies function better in ten different domains of fitness. If that sounds like a lot of learning for a workout regimen, don’t worry. In addition to leading vigorous exercises, the coaches at CrossFit West Seattle act as stewards of CrossFit knowledge. They slowly familiarize beginners with the terminology, techniques, and equipment required to navigate CrossFit’s workouts. In fact, they require that all new students complete a series of fundamentals classes before joining the regularly scheduled sessions or hanging out in the evening to play catch with barbells. But students are not merely challenged; instructors also motivate and reward students for their hard work, and the group setting fosters a team-like atmosphere.
