Muscle weighs more than fat, making retired bodybuilders nature's best paperweights. Get buff and avoid scattered utility bills with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a one-month fundamentals membership at CrossFit Bellevue (a $383 value including tax).
CrossFit Bellevue’s Fundamentals classes educate its members about CrossFit’s approach to fitness and prepare them for involvement in group sessions and boot camps. The program blends high-interval reps with weightlifting and gymnastics under the inspirational tutelage of a seasoned trainer. Coaches take a personal interest in their charges and prepare them for rigorous body-wringing by teaching nine functional movements, metabolic conditioning, and weightlifting. Classes focus on setting and achieving fitness goals and provide nutritional tips to help students become as lithesome as a jaguar classically trained in ballet. The month-long program includes approximately 11 classes. Groupon customers are encouraged to enroll in the Saturday/Sunday class schedule, although Monday/Wednesday/Friday and Tuesday/Thursday/Sunday schedules are also available to accommodate pupil's jam-packed calendars. This class is a prerequisite for attending CrossFit group sessions and successfully bench pressing a tractor.
Spread across 17,500 square feet of training space and a 5,000 square foot indoor turf field, CrossFit Bellevue's huge equipment cache ensures that members have the ability to challenge themselves within a safe and supportive environment. But just what kind of equipment are we talking about? Try two indoor sprint tracks, 21 regulation-size lifting platforms, ropes, rings, bars, and medicine balls. Yet with all those options, safety remains the key priority for the coaches—including former members of the armed services and competitive athletes—who monitor each student's technique to help minimize injury risk and maximize effectiveness.
These CrossFit workouts emphasize the importance of functional exercises that mirror the kinds of movements people use in everyday life, such as running, jumping, climbing, lifting, and throwing. With the help of kettlebells, free weights, sandbags, and other objects, trainers can teach people of all fitness levels how to scale the load and intensity of each exercise. It's that extra level of care and individualized attention that helps keep members feeling confident and motivated as they work toward their fitness goals.
