Helmed by Mark Landis, a seasoned trainer and jiu-jitsu master, CrossFit HTK builds physical brawn and mental toughness using the CrossFit functioning-training curriculum. Challenging moves such as kettle-bell swings, Olympic barbell lifts, and gymnastics-inspired bodyweight exercises make muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire-swallower. In addition to boosting agility, endurance, and coordination, each routine can be modified to suit exercisers of all levels. New students also score a free fitness assessment, which helps them track progress toward goals such as building strength and morphing into Superman.
Though CrossFit HTK offers discounts for new police, firefighters, new clients, and family members of existing clients, today’s Groupon is still the best deal available.
In his anti-gym, affectionately known as “the box,” CrossFit HTK’s head instructor Mark Landis draws out the dedication in his students with his CrossFit functional-training curriculum. Functional movements prepare the body for everyday tasks, unlike traditional routines that really only prepare people for running in place or reading Tolstoy while riding a bike. With two decades worth of physical training under his purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Mark and his crew lead brawn building routines for classes of no more than ten students—large enough for peers to inspire each other, but small enough to lavish individual attention. Sessions safely push students to the point of quivering limbs as they hoist barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells and endlessly leap onto plyometric boxes.
