With all the emphasis placed on high-powered fitness equipment nowadays, it’s hard to believe that our great grandparents stayed in shape before the advent of electricity. Of course, the prevalence of agrarian labour and tyrannosaurus rexes made sure they remained in peak physical condition. The certified personal trainers at Peninsula CrossFit strive to replicate the simplicity of these earlier times by replacing complex machines and equipment with intuitive instruments and functional exercises.
Before each session, men and women alike gather to view the day’s routine, which the instructors usually scrawl on a black wall with chalk. The warehouse-like facility keeps things simple with straightforward gear, including free weights, medicine balls, and chin-up bars. An outdoor area also allows groups to bolster heart rates and chase down rogue tractor tires during running drills.
