All CrossFit coaches study the science of exercise, but the trainers at Crossfit Veracity take a particularly empirical approach to designing their classes. The lead trainer, Leonardo Muñoz, describes his workouts in terms of simple Newtonian physics: force equals mass times acceleration. He designs new workouts everyday, challenging students to move increasingly large masses at greater speeds, therefore always increasing the intensity of their workouts. He says his workouts only last 5 to 20 minutes, and focus on fewer exercises done with perfect form rather than hours of training. The method seems to work for him and his fellow trainers, who have accomplished feats such as 50-mile endurance races, climbing 14,000-foot mountains, and overcoming a fear of their own ripped shadow.
