A strong man wrestles you to the ground to show off; a stronger man boosts your self-esteem and then accidentally breaks three of your ribs with a supportive hug. Learn the tenets of both strength and community with today's Groupon: for $39, you get one month of unlimited classes and an introductory Elements class at Capstone CrossFit (a $155 value).
Capstone CrossFit's workout philosophy keeps coy, seen-it-all muscles guessing with a constantly shifting workout regimen. An introductory Elements class acclimates new members to the ethos of their new exercise overlords. From there, you'll be free to choose from a schedule of morning, evening, and women's-only classes. The program begins with a muscle-readying warm-up, followed by a five-minute clinic on the workout of the day. These ever-changing workouts last 5–30 minutes and focus on high-impact movements with functional applications, such as lifting a photocopier—or running up the wrong escalator with a stolen photocopier. All sessions conclude with guided stretching. An expert staff oversees the regimen, which incorporates body weight exercises as well as medicine balls, kettlebells, jump ropes, free weights, and time travel.
Although Capstone CrossFit has yet to receive many online reviews, more than 1,300 Facebookers are fans.
