do they go to the front desk and ask for a bodyguard lol? actually, i kinda feel bad asking this question, because no one wants to advertise obviously. Maybe im being too paranoid or something but it seems like there are some people who really want the know what goes on at cfs. thanks!
laziestneighbor Ever wanted to go in for a gym membership but freaked out when you realized there are men lurking around looking at your butt? Not here. You’ll be introduced with a warm greeting by staff members who will make your experience that much better. CrossFit isn’t an “elite” program – it’s tough, it’s painful, and sometimes you’re going to cry during class – BUT IT WORKS BECAUSE YOU’RE GOING TO CROSS THAT FINISH LINE AGAIN AND AGAIN UNDER YOUR OWN POWER…despite your best efforts for not putting forth 100% effort in class today! CrossFit is also VERY affordable – $25/month can give you access to great classes all over town where other gyms charge $70+ per month just for their basic “toning” equipment (!) while CrossFit is free of charge (incredibly fair). Every time I leave my own local box I’m motivated to workout again because I’ve just seen one of my classmates PR’d or WIN her FIRST ever competition….and that makes me want more classes even MORE!
I told someone else this once…you get
What Did Greg Glassman Do To Start Crossfit?
Greg Glassman is the founder of Crossfit, Inc. Greg Glassman has overseen the growth of the company since its creation in San Diego in 2000. He left his job as a pretty successful lawyer to start what would become one of the biggest fitness trends at that time. The origins of Crossfit came when Greg became interested in increasing his own strength and conditioning training during his late 20’s. He used various workouts inspired by Olympic lifters, strongmen and other types of competitors around him (many with military backgrounds). By combining these different exercises he found he got results he was happy with quickly; improving both strength and endurance through similar workouts. After experimenting with weightlifting for some time, Greg eventually realized there needed to be an online resource connecting like-minded individuals who could support each other in their hard work towards greater fitness goals. The community thrived at that time due to others including himself having already gained significant handiness from these skills through their competitive backgrounds or simply following what they saw on television packages promoting all sorts of different exercise programs being promoted by well-known personalities! It wasn’t long before Greg created a simple forum where people could post links to useful information regarding training methods & programming so others can learn from them themselves/experiment with similar concepts not just copying things exactly…If you want to find out more about this then I recommend reading this article here: http://www.crossfitlist.com/news/502377_what
CrossFit Mayhem shop
in New York City is sticking with traditional training, even though his kids’ school team switched to CrossFit. Mark “Pete” Radtke, owner of Columbia’s Mayhem Fitness & Rehabilitation, said he has no plans to leave the gym that’s been his passion since 1995. A decade after he boosted his membership from 300 athletes in 1992 to 2,400 in 2002 by selling eight-week memberships at $1,200 per person, he won’t know whether there are enough interested athletes until autumn when membership renewals arrive. Radtke is one of the few CrossFit gyms left where classes start without any warm-up or stretching exercises and end with full WODs (workout of the day), plus post-WOD recovery sessions while laying on some mats on the floor while lifting dumbbells overhead while bending knees toward chest. Members do 90 seconds of squats followed by 90 seconds on pullups before doing 21 front squats. When they stop for 15 minutes to chat during class breaks, Radtke assumes they’re not using their smartphones or talking with other classes also training nearby but often don’t hear them over music blaring through buldgs speakers like “Smoke On The Water.” Although many CrossFit gyms sell memberships for $99 each time a new theory is introduced about making people fitter through exercise routines that imitate military conditioning drills — including burpees and handstand pushups — Radtke offered what he sees as
