Complex Barbell's coaches describe their gym as a "functional fitness facility." They conduct CrossFit–style workouts designed to improve a person's ability in multiple domains of fitness. They combine cardio, olympic lifting, gymnastics, plyometrics, and calisthenics into new workouts each day. They particularly specialize in teaching safety and proper-form, so that people can build strength, speed, and endurance with minimal risk of injury.
It may seem a heroic feat for the coaches to put in this level of focus on a day-to-day basis, but as lifelong athletes, they are prepared. They actually refer to themselves as The League, adopting super-heroic nicknames such as Coach Phoenix or Coach Bane. They pursue fitness as tirelessly as their namesakes pursue enemies or a contract with the most fashion-forward cape designer.
