Following CrossFit's rigorous method, which is regularly used by military special-operations units and champion martial artists, certified trainers Gina Nicolosi and Mary Connolly strive to help clients of all ages and abilities reach their fitness goals. Their high-intensity fitness routines focus on helping clients achieve increased strength, stamina, speed, and coordination, in the hopes of creating a new class of superheroes so the world doesn’t have to endure yet another Spiderman movie. The pair leads scalable, daily changing exercise regimens that help clients boost their strength and endurance and stave off workout burnout with exercises such as weightlifting and plyometrics. One day, patrons might toss medicine balls and climb ropes, and the next day, they might do pull-ups and hang from gymnastics rings. They push their clients to focus on proper form and technique to prevent injury, and the instructors continually check their progress to ensure that everyone is advancing at a healthy pace.
At Prana Yoga, students gather beneath the wings of swans, which float across the studio's wall toward the inspirational quote "Let the beauty of what you love be what you do." Here, such wisdom surfaces from within as minds clear and muscles strengthen. During the signature Vinyasa flow class, the temperature rises to loosen tight muscles and oust squatting toxins. Students match deep, relaxing breaths with a series of ancient poses as teachers, such as studio cofounder Carrie Herscovici, circulate the room, lighting candles and gently adjusting bodily alignment. Drawing from her training with power-yoga superstar Baron Baptiste and Indian sage Senthil Kumar, Carrie inspires her students to surmount both physical challenges and mental unrest, strengthening the body while bringing peace to the mind. In addition to leading classes, she donates 10% of the studio's profits to charity and operates a clothing boutique that helps shoppers integrate yoga into their everyday lives and bow-tie collections.
Sandbags and tractors tires. They're not the likeliest pieces of exercise equipment, but the trainers at CrossFit Webster know using them requires functional motions. Also, hefting, hauling, and flipping such unconventional items is good fun. Functional movements, and fun, are the core of CrossFit. The system inspires students to perform functional movements at a high intensity while using basic equipment and their own body weight. Each daily workout consists of a wide variety of exercises that sculpt muscles throughout the entire body. Changing exercises each day also keeps workouts fresh while avoiding the boredom of repetition. CrossFit is a very adaptable program, too, allowing trainers to tailor routines to anyone's individual fitness level. To keep things fun and to fuel the fire of competition, CrossFit Webster's team even periodically organizes a sort of CrossFit Olympics called Garage Games.
