Food samples from Palm Beach County’s distinguished eateries fly around like so many bits of confetti at the kickoff to the fourth annual Flavor Palm Beach event, a celebration of munchies complete with live music, dance routines, and an ice-sculpture exhibit. Armed with ladles and spatulas, local vendors declare war on culinary blandness as they prepare for the month-long dining event with a mouth-bound assortment of creative dishes. Local residents and visiting gastronomes come together to greet the festival with a night of revelry headlined by String Theory, a quartet that spreads its love of mozzarella through a catalog of spot-on rock ‘n’ roll covers. Additionally, the Palm Beach Atlantic University dance troupe glides across the stage like frozen turkeys barreling down a bowling lane, dazzling crowds with a buffet of synchronized movements.
CrossFit CityPlace uses the CrossFit system for the same reason many military, police, and athletic organizations use it—to prepare for every kind of physical activity. The workouts accomplish that by using a series of intense, varied functional movements, such as lifting, pushing, and pulling. There’s also plenty of running, squatting, and bending—all movements designed to sculpt every muscle group while enhancing agility, speed, and power. They also appreciate the method for its group mentality, as coaches and students alike inspire and motivate each other through each daily workout. And to keep everyone engaged, they also change routines each session.
