It's hard to predict what will catch the eye first at CrossFit Westchester: the bright neon green columns or the students performing burpees on the floor. Though the exercisers hail from different backgrounds, their WOD?workout of the day?consists of the same movements, scaled to accommodate their individual fitness levels. At the class's head, a certified CrossFit trainer monitors the group's form and times their reps, injecting a little bit of friendly competition.
CrossFit workouts blend weightlifting, calisthenics, and gymnastics-inspired techniques, all of which translate to real-life actions. CFW Kids owner and CrossFit competitor Mike Sovak embraces the model's flexibility?he welcomes newcomers to try the same regimen as a top athlete, so long as the loads are adjusted. He even hosts classes for kids in the 3,100-square-foot space, encouraging them to run, jump, and climb during lessons that bolster athleticism and confidence in all body types.
