To help patrons build up speed, coordination, and stamina, CrossFit Mercer owner Dolph Geurds leads them in CrossFit's signature workout—quick, high-intensity combinations of weightlifting, gymnastics, and cardio exercises in short, intense routines. He began practicing CrossFit in 2004, which fueled him to inspire others to get fit through this strength and conditioning regimen, along with a team of coaches. Before permitting pupils into the fold, instructors run them through the On Ramp program, which evaluates athletic prowess with tests such as jump roping and pull-ups to help coaches craft custom training programs to each student's abilities. The exercises vary from day to day; one day, students might do pull-ups and sprints, and the next, they might climb ropes and dead lift weights.
The staff caters to younger and older visitors with courses designed around kids and seniors, and students in CrossFit Mercer's weightlifting club test their muscular fortitude by lifting world-class athletes over their heads.
When most people think of world-class athletes, they might envision the bruising strength of a powerlifter, or the blink-and-you-miss-it speed of a track star. Although those athletes compete in separate disciplines, their success is attributable to the same fundamentals: mobility and functional movement. At CrossFit Mercer, experienced instructors help clients develop their own athletic building blocks during immersive classes. During the 12-week program, clients get lessons in everything from proper body-weight movement to the connection between mobility and muscles' overall power. These exercises prepare them for the next step in their workout journey; after completing the 12-week course, clients can safely move on to more intense training with barbells and high-intensity interval work.
