Exercise is a pleasurable activity for both would-be athletes and recovering pyromaniacs desperate enough to settle for burning calories. Fuel fitness regimens with today’s Groupon: for $44, you get a six-session introductory CrossFit: Bulletproof program at CrossFit Little Rock (an $89 value).
The experienced trainers at CrossFit Little Rock school fitness-seekers of all levels in the fundamentals of the signature CrossFit program during Bulletproof, the required introductory course. Structured around lower-intensity cultivation of flexibility, mobility, and tissue work, the three-week, six-session program prepares students in groups of 12 or less to effectively pounce on the high-intensity fitness regimen. Classes designed to steel physiques against potential injury by ratcheting up the body's range of motion ready participants for CrossFit, which incorporates elements of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, and rowing with power-lifting moves, such as bench-pressing rolled-up strongmen. An initial 15-minute phone consultation lets certified trainers get to know clients and their ever-present Hulk Hogan apparitions while helping to establish individual goals. All students also get a 30-minute follow-up one-on-one personal assessment to track progress. Check the schedule for class times.
CrossFit Little Rock
CrossFit Little Rock’s certified trainers have a 5,000-square-foot facility at their disposal, but they don't try to fill all that space with exercise machines that focus on one muscle at a time. Instead, they lead beginner and advanced classes that emphasize functional fitness, using all that space for exercises inspired by gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting, and rowing. The specific workouts change all the time, but they may include everything from swinging kettlebells to climbing ropes.
