"Get in shape" hovers near the top of many New Year's resolution lists, right next to "deal with raccoon infestation" and "figure out how raccoons get trapped in the TV." Stop watching so many TV shows starring raccoons with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 10-visit punch card at CrossFit Niagara on Henrietta Street.
CrossFit Niagara's certified staff of hard-bodied muscle moulders whittles weakness away from flimsy physiques, leaving a toned and taut exterior. Each visit gifts fledgling fitness buffs a one-hour class as well as time in the weight room and open gym, allowing for a fully customized, self-paced workout for all ages and strength levels. CrossFit Niagara utilizes programs built around movements that are natural to humans such as squatting, lifting, and neighbour wrestling. The group exercise classes create a community of support, camaraderie, and accountability. By varying workout routines, body-sculpting instructors keep exercise fresh and invigorating, eschewing monotonous sessions of boulder pushing and Stonehenge remodelling.
