At a regular gym you’re on your own with all of the machines and weights. Here at CrossFit PFB every class is led by a familiar coach and filled with other athletes who support and encourage each other’s unique accomplishments, challenges, goals, weaknesses, and strengths.
At a regular gym, you also work-out largely among strangers all floating around in their own bubbles. Employees are available to answer questions; instructors teach their classes; trainers, train their clients. At a CrossFit “box” you’re among friends, and at PFB we also coach members in nutrition and supplementation needs.
Can’t make a specific class but still need to work-out? No problem, come to an open-gym slot! You can do a WOD from the previous day, stretches, accessory work… anything you want, with any of the equipment not in use by a concurrent class.
Our head coach programs the Workout Of the Day (WOD) for all of our athletes. Coaches familiar with each athlete’s needs and attentive to their unique goals guide each class through the WOD. Popular programs at regular gyms typically use isolation based movements and exercises with cardio work injected to up the intensity. CrossFit focuses on functional movements rather than isolating individual muscles for “sculpting”.
Many popular programs at regular gyms are short term by design. CrossFit is a lifestyle with the intent to take you down a road of fitness and self improvement for the rest of your life, not just to look good in your bikini for the coming summer. See our page about what CrossFit is, to learn more.
Will CrossFit help you look better naked? Absolutely, but if bodybuilding is what you are looking for then CrossFit isn’t for you. Lastly, at many regular gyms their main focus is getting you in the door. What you do inside their gym is an afterthought. Here at CrossFit PFB what you do inside the gym and your nutrition choices outside the gym is our entire focus.
