Sit-ups remain one of the best methods of reshaping the abdomen, second only to standing in front of a lit cannon. Enjoy explosive exercise with today's Groupon: for $59, you get six CrossFit fundamental sessions, plus a one-month unlimited membership, at Pikes Peak CrossFit (up to a $225 value). The six fundamental on-ramp sessions start every two weeks and take place on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Check the schedule for availability.
The seven certified trainers at Pikes Peak CrossFit teach nutrition, instinct-based exercises, and strength training with gymnastic rings, pull-up bars, kettlebells, and Olympic free weights. During each fundamental session, the trainers explain and instruct students in the basic CrossFit movements, including the clean and jerk, shoulder presses, and kettlebell swings, so they may perform them accurately and safely when they attend their month of unlimited regular classes. With adjustments for students of all ages and abilities, each combination of multijoint movements works the entire body and aims to plump muscles for daily activities, such as reaching for a high shelf, running after children, or hand-to-hand combat in the jungles of Sumatra. Instructors build a motivational community to encourage pupils to lift more, run faster, and push harder to meet their goals.
