Anaheim CrossFit West
At Anaheim CrossFit West, owner Stephanie Amato and her team of experienced coaches lead small groups through the ever-changing and intense workout of the day in their recently expanded studio. The workouts—which are designed for all fitness levels, including Little Mario, Bigger Mario, and Fire Mario—require exercisers to complete a daily sequence of functional exercises such as squatting, deadlifting, rowing, and jumping with purpose. To help replenish exercisers' bodies following the grueling sessions, Stephanie, whose nickname is Primal Mama and whose background includes nutrition counseling, posts protein-packed recipes on her blog.
