Although there aren't brain surgeons roaming around their rugged, warehouse-like space, CrossFit Synapse's owners delved into neuroscience when developing their gym's philosophy and name. More specifically, they drew inspiration from the section in the brain where electrical impulses guide the mind and body through their routines. The gym's staff of certified trainers strives to emulate these connections with an ever-rotating array of functional exercises, helping guests fortify both their body and their mind. During CrossFit Awesome classes, the intense, yet fun-loving team crafts challenging workouts, drawing from their repertoire of weightlifting moves, gymnastic techniques, and cardio drills. Although they design their sessions to push each student beyond their limits, they can scale the intensity of kettlebell swings and pull-ups to accommodate any fitness level. In addition to their signature course, they also offer personal-training sessions, yoga, and children's classes that aim to build the foundations for a healthy lifestyle and potential career in Olympic hopscotching at an early age.
