GroundWorks Gym's name is no accident—the foundational title is a metaphor for the 20,000 square-foot gym's entire fitness philosophy. The center's trainers believe that a solid foundation of not only strength, but also respect for one's body, is the key to success. That's why they buttress their fitness classes with unique sessions centered on healthy movement. For example, Functional Movement Screens can identify athletes' disordered movement patterns and provide corrections to help them avoid injuries and awkward dance-offs, and Primal Move classes help boost mobility and strengthen the body's stabilizing muscles to give bodies a stronger foundation.
This foundation comes in handy during the gym's range of intense group classes. CrossFit sessions help athletes of all ages and body types achieve total-body functional fitness with high-intensity routines, which might include performing lunges, squats, and burpees, heaving kettlebells, or lifting weights, depending on the workout of the day (WOD). Experienced martial artists train adults and kids of all levels in the art of muay thai and jiu jitsu, along with leading—of course—foundational classes designed to forge the kind of strength and mobility essential to these disciplines.
