CrossFit Future's high-ceilinged, 10,000-square-foot facility is anchored by kettlebell areas, ring stations, and deadlift bars waiting to be hoisted high. Trainers—each with a CrossFit Level 1 certification or better—fuel 60-minute group or one-on-one workouts with calls of encouragement. The fifteen-strong staff unites backgrounds as diverse as a mechanical-engineering degree, a fireman, and a seventh-place finish in the breaststroke in the 1996 Olympics. Using up to date equipment, the team motivates students to sprint up and down the back alley, drag sleds, or toss medicine balls.
