Bravo CrossFit, the first CrossFit gym in Westchester, opened in 2009 with a few sandbags and a single rusty barbell. The gym has evolved leaps and bounds since then; with a 5,500-square-foot facility, where clients from all walks of life can get in shape, including students, business executives, athletes, and stay-at-home parents.
The coaching staff has numerous certifications and several years of experience in the fitness and health industry. Coaches lead clients through functional exercises that eschew the muscle-isolating machines and movements of traditional gyms. The daily-changing routines harness kettlebells and calisthenics as well as training skills from Olympic weightlifting and gymnastics. The gym further helps clients overhaul unhealthy lifestyle habits by providing nutritional training and posting healthy, flavorful recipes online for dishes such as slow-cooked coconut-ginger pork and bacon-wrapped chicken to ensure that taste buds don’t get bored and wander into a pint of ice cream.
