Establishing a regular exercise routine is a great way to show your body you care and is much less painful than swallowing a greeting card. Send safe anatomical well wishes with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 15 fitness classes at CrossFit Full Circle in Mechanicsville (a $250 value).
The experienced instructors at CrossFit Full Circle bombard physiques with a schedule of 45- to 60-minute classes. Each session immerses small groups in various routines such as the morning and nightly Workout of the Day, which draws from gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting, robot boxing, and kettlebell exercises to yield a brief but intense sequence of movements. Participants forge through workouts armed with the facility's hodgepodge of equipment including Rogue bars, AKC kettlebells, Dynamax medicine balls, tires, logs, and prowler machines, which resist pushes and pulls like a poorly trained pet hippo.
CrossFit Full Circle
At CrossFit Full Circle, dedicated coaches motivate students to get into the best shape of their lives. They’re guided by the no-nonsense workout ethic of CrossFit, a system that focuses on constantly varied functional exercises executed at high intensity. The gym's personal trainers draw from a wealth of experiences and certifications—owner Jason Struck is working on a master's degree in exercise physiology, and coach Matt Bahen boasts a background in serving with elite units in the navy⎯as they lead boot camps and exercises such as hurling kettlebell weights and performing pull-up reps. In order to build muscle, burn fat, and shake houseguests' hands firmly but not so firmly that they lose their arms, members use top-shelf equipment, weights, and bumper plates from brands such as Pendlay, Rogue, Kraiburg, and Dragon Door, all under the constant encouragement of a like-minded community of fellow athletes.
