Six days a week, CrossFit 623’s coaches gather at the warehouse-style gym to guide members into better bodies. The coaches—dubbed the Dream Team—make sure people squat and snatch using the correct form, and flip oversized tires and canoes without pulling a muscle. They guide people through workouts steeped in functional fitness with such equipment as rowing machines, gymnastics rings, and plyometric boxes. Each exercise is easily tailored to ensure members remain challenged, no matter their physical abilities.
At CrossFit North Valley, exercisers complete a different lineup of exercises each day as they work toward rippling muscles and improved overall fitness. Each class consists of a broad array of high-intensity movements, from dead lifts and presses to pull-ups and dips. The functional aspect of each routine betters participants' performance in other arenas of their lives, such as going on hikes or holding a squat when dinner-table chairs run out. The gym's coaches offer encouragement while students pump out reps together on pull-up bars, ropes, rings, kettlebells, and even tractor tires?breeding accountability, fitness, and team camaraderie.
At CrossFit Black Storm, trainers forgo boring, repetitive bouts on treadmills and ellipticals for intense strength and endurance exercises that push students to perform at the peak of their ability.

The ever-changing regimens feature exercises tailored to the abilities of each student, and on any given day, participants might find themselves hoisting heavy weights, swinging kettle bells, and leaping onto boxes, all for the sake of building strength and boosting speed, coordination, and power.
At Big Joe's Little Gym, it's not uncommon to see clients swinging sledgehammers, hoisting barrels, and upending tires.

To ensure folks get the most out of their visits, personal trainers give free consultations that help formulate a fitness plan tailored to personal goals, experience, and astrological sign.
