Good Times CrossFit
Good Times CrossFit's certified coaches make tough workouts fun by transforming groups of disparate exercisers into teams that push one another toward fitness goals. Like snowmen's fingerprints, no two workouts are the same, but all share three characteristics: intensity, functionality, and safety. To prevent injuries and promote healthy habits, he coaches emphasize proper technique as they impart power lifts such as squats, cleans, and bench-presses. Calisthenics such as burpees and pushups tone the core while preparing the body for everyday movements such as lifting grocery bags stuffed with watermelons and hurling tubs of ice cream to the moon. To torch calories and foster endurance, the workouts also include cardio challenges such as sprints, rowing drills, and box jumps.
Workouts take place in a garage-style gym filled with barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, and pull-up bars. In addition to hosting group classes for adults and children, instructors provide nutrition advice and sell Pure Pharma supplements.
