The CrossFit-certified coaches at Brickhouse CrossFit strengthen soul carriages with a regimen of time-tested workout techniques adaptable for any age or fitness level. Brickhouse CrossFit's fitness fanatics take an old-school approach to exercise, emphasizing fundamental, functional movements that mimic everyday experiences to bolster strength in day-to-day activities. Check the class schedule to try out CrossFit's body-weight exercises, weightlifting, and high-intensity drills inside the warehouse-like facility, which has tall ceilings and large open rooms that provide the necessary space for gymnastic rings, rope climbing, height-varied pull-up bars, and more.
Small class sizes, averaging about eight students, create a more personal atmosphere and allow for one-on-one attention from trainers, and working out with others motivates you to push yourself harder, helps you stick to a regimen, and gives you the opportunity to bond with new friends over tales of general sweatiness and mutual plans to beat up the ocean. Exercisers can also work with coaches to develop overall fitness goals, gather advice on nutrition, and work toward desired results.
