A Chat with CrossFit Round Lake
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We sent a team to compete on NBC's "The Spartan Race," which is set to debut in April of this year. Known as the "Round Lake Racers," co-owner Melissa Manzer and her teammates are the area's specialists in Obstacle Course Racing (OCR).
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Our programming is constantly varied, which means our members can expect to be challenged in new ways every time they come to class. We'll get you climbing ropes, hauling logs, flipping tires and climbing walls as you take on a new obstacle course challenge each class!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The Capital Region needs a SGX Certified Spartan Race Coach and facility! And we have the perfect facility for it: 7,000sq. ft indoor space, including ropes, turf, and pullup bars, as well as outdoor space, including a running trail, tires, logs, and walls for practicing wall climbs!
What do you love most about your job?
There are thousands of people in the Capital Region who are just as passionate about competing and racing as we are, and now that we're offering Spartan Racing classes, we're excited to help these athletes achieve their goals in their next race!
