Establishing a regular exercise routine is a great way to show your body you care and is much less painful than swallowing a greeting card. Work up a healthier appetite with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a CrossFit training package at Peninsula CrossFit in Sidney (a $199.36 total value), which includes:

- One month of CrossFit group training sessions twice weekly (an $89 value)
CrossFit invigorates students with comprehensive conditioning programs that furnish core strength and improve overall health. During a one-hour elements training session, instructors engage pupils with an extensive, functional workout that primes physiques for the higher-intensity signature CrossFit challenge and lower-intensity stamp-licking contests. Muscle moulders flourish their technique with varied skill circuits anchored in squats, dead lifts, and shoulder presses and increase their endurance with plyometric jumps, burpees, and sprints. In addition to laying the foundation for the speed, power, and medieval crossbow domains of traditional CrossFit, the introductory elements classes foster athletes in a less competitive environment in order to inspire confidence.
After mastering fundamental CrossFit moves in Elements, students graduate to twice weekly, standard CrossFit classes. Each session slings a new routine of moves in order to avoid boredom, traditional exercise plateaus, and run-ins with ex-Thighmasters. Check the studio's six-day schedule for a full list of Elements and CrossFit class times.
With all the emphasis placed on high-powered fitness equipment nowadays, it’s hard to believe that our great grandparents stayed in shape before the advent of electricity. Of course, the prevalence of agrarian labour and tyrannosaurus rexes made sure they remained in peak physical condition. The certified personal trainers at Peninsula CrossFit strive to replicate the simplicity of these earlier times by replacing complex machines and equipment with intuitive instruments and functional exercises.
Before each session, men and women alike gather to view the day’s routine, which the instructors usually scrawl on a black wall with chalk. The warehouse-like facility keeps things simple with straightforward gear, including free weights, medicine balls, and chin-up bars. An outdoor area also allows groups to bolster heart rates and chase down rogue tractor tires during running drills.
