"Fitness is the first step to surviving panther attacks," say Sandia CrossFit's co-owners Zach and Matt on their website. But though the two have a lighthearted way of putting it, their point about CrossFit is a serious one. The program—modeled on ancestral living, with its diverse physical work—helps clients to develop the strength and stamina to deal with any physical situation. That's why they rely on CrossFit's strength-training and cardio-intensive exercises to sculpt muscles, boost agility, and increase speed.
Inside their meticulously kept facility, the co-owners offer an assortment of simple equipment, such as rings and free weights, that participants can use during Workout of the Day exercises. These daily workouts vary, evoking ancient-fitness moves called for in the days of spear throwing, running from animal predators, and riding velociraptors bareback. Outside of CrossFit, staff also lead boot camps and circuit classes that feature an equal level of intensity but with perhaps more familiar exercises.
