To the trainers at CrossFit Iron Addicts, the word CrossFit means several things. It's the way they teach their students to move safely and efficiently. It's how they lead students down paths toward physical fitness, and how they reshape diets with healthy meats, veggies, and fruits. But CrossFit is also about the community, which is made up of people who support one another as they push toward their next workout goals.
Of course, CrossFit is also about the workouts themselves. The trainers constantly change the WOD, or workout of the day, switching up varied functional movements, such as swinging kettlebells or rocking medicine balls to sleep. Their high-intensity workouts can be scaled to accommodate students of all fitness levels, ensuring that everyone is equally challenged. Their schedule also includes a Barbell Club, Foundations class, and Skills class.
Youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility—these are the pillars of the YMCA's mission. It's a mission that's accomplished with community programs and fitness classes like those available daily at YMCA of the Coastal Bend. The gym's new wing features cardio equpiment and newly renovated racquetball courts, while the recently updated class schedule includes high-intensity interval training and morning boot camps. Rounding out the mental and physical health experience are personal-training sessions for adults and a variety of sports programs for children.
CrossFit Metro 361's coaches actively work with exercisers to ensure they're always using proper form. Scalable CrossFit workouts—built upon the backbone of functional fitness—steer clear of treadmills and elliptical machines. Rather, the no-frills gym relies on barbells with weighted plates, dumbbells, and jump ropes. Members break a sweat while swinging kettlebells and jumping onto plyometric boxes. Classes also take them through tire flips and bozo buckets.
For Nathaniel Brabson, a NASM-certified personal trainer and owner of Functional Integrated Training, confusion is always a good sign—muscle confusion, that is. Nathaniel devises workouts that activate muscles in several different ways, thereby preventing his clients from hitting an insurmountable plateau. His group and private sessions incorporate equipment such as kettlebells, TRX bands, and medicine balls into challenging, interval-based routines.
