CrossFit Firestorm’s certified trainers lead small groups through a series of high-intensity workouts designed to rub out routine and obliterate self-perceived fitness limitations. Although CrossFit workouts can test the strength and edge-pushing potentiality of even the most advanced athletes, a pair of creative personal trainers tailors classes to the fitness range of the three–six participants present. Custom dynamic workouts combine strength training, gymnastics, metabolic conditioning, and a galvanizing high-five montage to stifle pathetic cries of monotony. After learning the basics over six Foundations classes, newly minted students can raise the intensity by selecting one of the three weeks to attend an unlimited number of CrossFit Firestorm's regular group sessions. Not content simply to deliver a kaleidoscopic range of heart-pumping exercises, trainers also provide nutritional counseling to ensure that workout results are not sacrificed at the sundae altar of candied comestibles.
Located in a spacious building near the Connecticut River, CrossFit Firestorm shirks the crowded mechanical hodgepodge of big gyms for an open space that allows the joys of innovation and impulsive tap dancing to infiltrate workouts. With absolutely no limitations on the fitness skills of the people they train, the health-boosting hotshots at CrossFit Firestorm gladly accompany anyone on his or her health conquest.
