Explosive Speed Gym’s website warns that it is no “vanity gym,” meaning there are no televisions or mirrors. Instead, the knowledgeable staff—comprised of Crossfit level 1 trainers, a certified personal trainer, a PhD of physical chemistry, and an NASM-certified corrective-exercise specialist—opts for a serious environment where athletes of all ages can become faster and more agile. Their high-intensity workouts are composed of plyometric exercises, sprints, and body-weight lifts. Improvement is carefully monitored through performance testing so members can track their progress without competing in obstacle courses against their cats.
