The trainers at Sledge CrossFit do a lot for their clients: they give them the knowledge, hands-on instruction, and encouragement to dive into CrossFit’s full-tilt, functional workouts. But although trainers are always there with a guiding hand, final responsibility ultimately rests with the client. Coach Alexis Barraza, certified by USA Weightlifting, cultivates a culture of personal responsibility and camaraderie as members bang out brutal daily workouts in a spartan space lined with truck tires, medicine balls, and monkey bars. Barazza also oversees the gym’s powerlifting program, which can prep students for local and state competitions all the way up to the global level, where they try to unseat reigning champion Atlas.
