CrossFit’s owners, certified in CrossFit and Olympic lifting, channel their experiences as dedicated athletes into group courses, acquainting attendees with high-intensity full-body workouts. Inside a 4,000-square-foot space, students push physiques through squats, dead lifts, pull-ups, pushups, and other exercises to coax figures into shape while trainers emphasize the importance of proper form and preserving shirts with cautionary flexing. During one-hour sessions, participants might heave kettlebells, clamber up ropes, or bound across a trampoline. Because its moves are scalable, CrossFit accommodates patrons of all ages, experience levels, and giant heredity.
The class primes muscles for more advanced CrossFit routines, which combine exercises from gymnastics, weight lifting, rowing, and sprinting. If students prove a mastery over group courses, they may hop to the next tier of group classes at no additional charge. CrossFit Sonoma County also welcomes the public to weekend seminars on fitness and nutrition to supplement muscle-sculpting courses and slowly build an army of bodybuilders.
CrossFit Sonoma County
The studio at CrossFit Sonoma County pulses with high-intensity workout routines. Led by coaches Sarah Pierce and Dan Schmieding, who both compete in national CrossFit events and hold multiple CrossFit certifications, students undergo varied exercises from the scheduled Workout of the Day. Sarah and Dan circumnavigate the floor, guiding movements, ensuring safety, and gingerly removing any unnoticed "Kick Me" signs pinned to T-shirts. Combining weightlifting, gymnastics, and track-and-field techniques, CrossFit aims to build resilience, strength, and versatility, equipping students with the stamina for athletic and everyday activities. Instructors scale each workout up or down to accommodate individual levels of fitness or exercisers recovering from restrictive injuries. Encompassing more than 3,000 square feet, CrossFit Sonoma County’s gym—nicknamed “the playground”—houses atypical equipment such as pommel horses, suspended rings, tires, sledgehammers, and weight sleds to facilitate each patron’s fitness goals.
