Certified trainer Travis Sleighter lifts iron kettlebells high into the air and brings them crushing down on his students’ calorie surpluses during high-intensity workouts that can be scaled to match any fitness level. The principal strength and conditioning program for many police academies, military units, and lion-fighting social clubs, CrossFit amalgamates a multitude of exercise techniques into daily changing workouts that work in synergy to build functional strength and keep students of all mindsets fully engaged. Travis blasts away the mechanical thickets of stationary workout machines in favor of an open gym, with free-weight exercises that tone various muscle groups at once and inspire students to bulldoze self-perceived fitness blockades.
As students scale to the peaks of their respective physiques, they will be joined by a social network of like-minded peers who propel each other onward with words of encouragement and firm slaps on the back. The fast pace and high energy of the workouts can be addictive, and students who attend any classes on the six-day schedule will likely see some familiar faces and hear some familiar deadlift groans before long.
