$19 for Eight CrossFit Classes ($150 Value)
Instructors lead eight introductory courses that familiarize students with the basics of CrossFit, teaching vital exercises and safe techniques, as well as determining each individual’s starting point. They change the regimen in every class, designing the overall course of exercise to improve the body’s functional ability. Classes are held five days a week, 10 times a day.
Little black quotation marks stand out against J19 Fitness’s light-gray brick walls, encompassing neatly painted letters that spell, “What I once feared, I now embrace.” These words act as a collective mantra and reminder for the exercisers at J19 Fitness, who on any given day may perform pushups, dashes, jumps, and Olympic-style weight lifts. Each day, the trainers here consult their vast repertoire of exercises to create a new regimen, ensuring that clients never walk into the same exercise session twice. This ever-shifting arrangement of exercises is a key aspect of CrossFit; it prevents the body from adapting to the workout so that muscles continue to perform at their best. Athletes, Olympic competitors, soldiers, and police personnel around the world use this same exercise philosophy to maintain peak physical condition and achieve maximum coolness when wearing sleeveless muscle shirts.
