CrossFit BMW: Benchmark Workouts
Even CrossFit pros have a least favorite move. For CrossFit BMW: Benchmark Workouts coach Christopher Binno, it’s the box jump. Binno knows how effective routines with his least favorite move can be, though, because he took up CrossFit to become a better wrestler; and it worked. He and fellow coach Jarrod Bell—who has 25 years of fitness and coaching experience as well as CrossFit and Olympic lifting certifications—lead the center’s classes, which consist of an ever-changing high-intensity routine of functional movements that quickly whittle the body into shape. They also teach Fundamentals classes, which teach first-timers to perform core CrossFit moves and the basic dance steps from the Scarface stage musical.
