Named for the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica, Arenal Fitness churns out heated, challenging, and dynamic daily workouts within a 4,800-square-foot facility. With today’s deal, athletes will attend four Basics classes to learn proper biomechanical form for CrossFit’s functional movements, so their skeletons can move with the greatest ease, efficiency, and ghoulish grace. Students from all ability and skill levels are led step by step through an appropriate workout program. Each Basics class covers several core movements and culminates in a full workout that combines strength, cardio, and body weight exercises into a smooth, synergistic stew. Students are then free to delve into a seven day schedule of CrossFit and kettlebell classes, dropping in to 10 or 20 classes (a $20 value/class). Each day at Arenal brings a new WOD, or Workout of the Day, that keeps muscles guessing with varying reps, routines, and weight levels. Kettlebell workouts teach students to wield old-school iron orbs to build strength, stamina, and flexibility. During workouts, enthusiastic instructors will encourage athletes not to sacrifice form for speed as they hoist 720 pounds of barbells and tie 240 feet of jump rope into a gigantic cat’s cradle.
To symbolize the raw energy and intensity of their training program, Donna Pierce and Lauren Bunney named their gym—named "Baltimore's Best" by Baltimore magazine in 2010—after Costa Rica’s active Arenal Volcano, which relentlessly spews hot smoke and molten lava. Lauren and Donna use more than 37 years of combined professional fitness experience guiding clients through workouts of the day since 2007 opening suburban Baltimore's first CrossFit affiliate and then establishing Arenal Fitness in 2010. The fitness team turns up the heat of their fitness routines with the CrossFit regimen, which transforms bodies through simple, rigorous, no-frills workouts. Exercisers won’t find circuit training strength machines at both of Arenal’s 5,000-square-foot facilities. Instead, they use free weights, medicines balls, and kettlebells to sculpt the physique you have always wanted. All students start out learning the proper form of CrossFit's functional movements before taking on the exhilarating workout of the day. Sessions can be scaled to meet the fitness level of each participant, but always keep muscles guessing with varying reps, weight levels, and surprise trust falls.
