Maximum Fitness scoffs at the monotony of traditional gyms and provides ever-changing, camaraderie-driven boot camp to keep trainees engaged. The four-week boot-camp program kicks off with an orientation, generally held the Saturday before the start of a four-week session. Trainees then attend as many 45-minute boot-camp sessions as they please, joining forces with 10–40 supportive peers during each gathering. Classes aim to torch calories, flattening façades before beefing them up with lean, tone muscles. Maximum Fitness perpetuates health with a class trip to a local grocery store that teaches students how to select healthy food, how to military-press a bagboy, and how to adhere to their included at-home nutrition guide.
The sledgehammer slams the earth with a resounding thud before being discarded for a game of toss-back with a medicine ball. Such training methods are but a small slice of the workout routine possibilities at Maximum Fitness. CrossFit—an innovative strengthening and conditioning program that veers away from using traditional muscle-training apparatuses—has even gained popularity among the training programs of police academies, military special-operations units, and high-profile federal agents who yearn to get better at hopscotch.
On any given day, the training team provides students with new routines based on a combination of Olympic sports, gymnastics activities, and metabolic conditioning that may include moves such as sprinting with barbells, pull-ups, or inverted rowing. By changing things up all the time, trainers hope to inspire participants to remain engaged and feel challenged to always bring their best effort to improving their health and wellness. Each session is also timed and scored, encouraging students to keep aiming higher.
