What You'll Get
Though sweat indicates a great workout, inward sweating denotes an athlete with true humility. Perspire, if you please, with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a CrossFit training package at CrossFit Factory in Doral, located 20 minutes east of Miami, (up to a $250 value), which includes:
- One month of unlimited CrossFit classes (a $175 value).
- A set of three On Ramp introductory classes (a $75 value). Customers who have done CrossFit before may skip On Ramp if they pass a proficiency test.<p>
CrossFit Factory’s 5,000-square-foot space, experienced trainers lead men and women of all shapes, sizes, and skill levels in constantly varying exercise routines. Three On Ramp introductory classes teach beginners to safely perform nine basic CrossFit exercises including lifts, squats, and Rambo-theme interpretive dances. Once trained, clients can join fitness fanatics of all levels for the workout of the day, a total-body challenge that pushes pupils through a new set of high-intensity intervals each 24-hour period. An experienced trainer may command clients to lob medicine balls, heave kettlebells, or pull up on ring holds while tooting a pitch pipe to ensure everyone grunts on key. Each exercise can be adjusted for greater or lesser intensity, depending on the participant’s skill level—click here to see a video of a sample workout with some variations.
The schedule includes multiple morning and evening classes to accommodate overstuffed agendas and to veto common exercise excuses such as “the dog ate my barbells.” Specialized classes mix up the offerings—once a day, CrossFit football breaks out a huddle of speed and strength drills designed by an NFL veteran.

About Da Factory Training Facility
A dull thud shakes the padded floor as Ronny Lindsay drops a barbell after demonstrating squat thrusters to his student. All around him trainers bellow motivation, and the air is damp with the sweat of men and women of all ages powering through the workout of the day. This scenario plays out daily for Ronny and his team of trainers, each of whom holds at least a CrossFit Level 1 trainer certification and listens to a soundtrack of workout grunts on a loop before bed.
The trainers introduce exercisers to CrossFit gradually. They start by teaching On Ramp fundamentals classes and then roll out the workout of the day, which typically includes a nonstop sequence of exercises such as sprints, lunges, and pull-ups. Aside from the daily workout, the trainers oversee a specialized CrossFit Football program, which was created with guidance from an actual professional football veteran. Da Factory Training Facility also provides additional services such as Olympic Weightlifting program and Competition Training program.
