Azubuike Boxing Academy
With their emphasis on functional training, it’s fitting that Golden State CrossFit has teamed up with Azubuike Boxing Academy—the brainchild of athlete and personal trainer Leyon Azubuike. Leyon has competed in sports including track, basketball, and football since he was in high school. After an injury prevented him from finishing out a season of football in college, he stuck around to coach his fellow teammates and helped several of them ascend to NFL careers. But Leyon’s career took a different turn. He became a personal trainer and focused his efforts on boxing and self-defense, which led to his development of the Azubuike Boxing Academy. The program melds modern boxing techniques with conditioning during one-hour classes. To mix things up, instructors also incorporate equipment ranging from heavy bags and focus mitts to Concept2 rowing machines and cardboard cutouts of Muhammed Ali.
Golden State CrossFit
At Golden State CrossFit, the results are big because it keeps the classes small. That means everyone gets personalized attention when learning the system of functional exercises performed at a high intensity. The trainers can scale that system to everyone's skill levels and abilities, ensuring all participants achieve their fitness goals. To reach those goals, they inspire their charges with upbeat attitudes and positive reinforcement. Each day they switch up routines, keeping all engaged while avoiding the dreaded muscle plateau. Whether their students are simply trying to get back into shape or prep for a marathon, they can use the system to make it happen. For those new to CrossFit, they also offer foundations classes, instilling rookies with the necessary tools before tossing them into CrossFit's deep end.
