Combining the individual attention of personal training with the supportive environment of a group class, CrossFit Awaken's instructors lead workouts designed to provide an accessible challenge for students of all fitness levels. They provide feedback throughout each session, ensuring that everyone practices safe, proper form while allowing attendees to scale the load and intensity of each exercise as they see fit. Each high-intensity workout is designed to help patrons improve their functional movements in every-day life—such as lifting, running, throwing, and jumping—with a combination of exercises to enhance their strength, stamina, and flexibility. And although every workout begins with stretching and a brief warm-up, no two workouts are ever the same. One day, a workout might include squats to help guests travel quickly up stairs, and the next it might include medicine-ball tosses to help them hoist heavy objects.
However, the CrossFit regimen doesn't focus on physical fitness alone. The workouts also promote healthy minds and bodies by helping students push themselves to new heights and develop the mental fortitude needed to make healthy lifestyle changes.
