On Monday, May 27, fitness buffs gather on Panama Street to test their physical endurance during an intense charity workout. The workout begins with a 1-mile run, followed by 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and finished with another 1-mile run. Attendants celebrate their victory with provided bites and refreshing beverages. The event, which honors Navy SEAL lieutenant Michael Murphy, donates proceeds to the Paul Lammermeier Foundation, an organization that helps provide homes to at-need children in Lima, Peru.
Helping a friend move. Spryly climbing stairs. Jogging with the dog. To the trainers at CrossFit Anax, physical fitness is all about increasing your day-to-day functionality. To that end, they lead a daily-changing regimen of classes that focus on strengthening everyday movements, such as running, lifting, pushing, and waving away pollsters on the street. Instead of overseeing armadas of elliptical machines or treadmills, they engage patrons in games of toss with medicine balls and send them sprinting, heaving kettlebells, and dropping for push-ups. They mix up activities each session to stave off the boredom of repetition, keeping everyone involved and meeting their fitness goals. These trainers know, though, that total body fitness is only possible with a nutritious diet, so they also guide their monthly members to better eating habits with monthly check-ins.
