The best workouts keep the body guessing by blindfolding muscles with sweatbands and waiting until the end of the workout to reveal that they've been bench-pressing a squid. Give muscles a high-intensity pop quiz with today’s Groupon: for $37, you get two weeks of CrossFit training at CrossFit Combat Fitness (a $75 value). No classes are held on Thursdays or Sundays.
In CrossFit Combat Fitness' more than 2,000-square-foot fitness facility, well-trained coaches buff students' bodies during five high-intensity group workouts a week. CrossFit is designed to bolster cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, and agility while also trimming unsuspecting waistlines and intimidating belligerent octopi. In each one-hour session, students use a variety of training accessories to challenge different muscle groups, swinging kettlebells, hoisting themselves up on gymnastic rings, or lassoing rambunctious rhomboids with 24-foot climbing ropes. CrossFit coaches can scale the day's workout to suit different individuals’ levels of experience and conditioning or apply their kinesiology degrees to advise trainees on correct pull-up form and the precarious art of balancing a barbell on your chin.
CrossFit Combat Fitness
CrossFit Combat Fitness coaches, armed with degrees in kinesiology and exercise science, lead workouts designed to enhance their clients’ agility, endurance, and speed inside a 2,100-square-foot facility. Each session focuses on different exercises; sometimes participants toss 20-pound balls, sometimes they flip giant tractor tires, haul 80-pound kegs, or spring from a standstill to leap atop stacked plyo boxes. Coaches customize workouts so participants are asked to do only what they can physically handle. Classes are scheduled five days a week, and on off days athletes can hit the open gym or stay home and read the dictionary, whichever they prefer.
