Much like crossword puzzles, CrossFit workouts offer challenging variations for each day of the week and can lead to an esoteric understanding of minor muscle groups. Use Sunday’s frustrating brainteasers as sweat rags with today’s Groupon: for $145, you get a two-month membership and an Elements prerequisite class at CrossFit Riverfront (a $465 value).
A high-intensity fitness center that shirks the crowded mechanical mishmash of big gyms for open spaces and innovative workouts, CrossFit Riverfront empowers its members with constantly varied exercises and tightly knit group classes. New members must first complete the core Elements course, which surveys the fundamental movements of a typical workout and ends with the ritualistic final step toward CrossFit initiation—a self-administered kettlebell tattoo. Freshly inked members are then encouraged to check out the schedule and sign up for a small-group class taught by a professional fitness instructor with personalized guidance in form and technique. With motivational workouts scaled to each group member’s ability, classes can quickly lead to a more defined physique and measurably higher odds of surviving back-alley attacks and Matthew McConaughey look-alike contests.
All CrossFit movements are natural and help develop better muscular stamina and improve overall shape. Stressing absolute fitness as a lifestyle rather than an isolated part of a daily routine, CrossFit Riverfront employs professional nutritionists to provide members with health advice and fresh produce from weight-room garden mats watered daily with excess perspiration.
As head trainer at CrossFit Riverfront, Gia O'Keefe's presence isn't always eagerly anticipated by her pupils, but she does get them to sweat. During more than 60 classes each week, O'Keefe ond the other RivFit coaches motivate participants through jumping jacks, lifts, jogging, squats, rowing, pushups, sit-ups, kettle bells, and jumping rope. CrossFit Riverfront also offers CrossFit—a high-intensity, whole-body, muscular-endurance workout—as well as yoga, a barbell club, seminars on nutrition and mobility, and classes for kids.
