Two former Calhoun Beach Club personal trainers have opened CrossFit Kingfield at 716 W. 34th St., specializing in workouts like Olympic lifting.
The CrossFit regimen involves varied movements designed to strengthen bodies for life outside the gym. Trainers work on weightlifting, gymnastics drills and endurance conditioning in different combinations.
“We don’t just throw people right into class,” said co-owner Danny Yeager. “With new people, we get them prepped and ready to go.”
Newbies sit down with trainers one-on-one to discuss their goals and take several individual sessions to learn movements and positions.
“We have ladies who are 75, and 22-year-old guys,” Yeager said. “Everybody does the same workout.”
