NEW: LFXFit. A new method of fitness training: bootcamp-style workouts guaranteed to burn maximum calories in minimum time. Exclusive to LaLanne Fitness. “CrossFit Without The Scary Stuff? What?” After eight years of owning the top CrossFit gym in the Bay Area, as well as a CrossFit Games athlete, Chris LaLanne recognized that there was a need for a program that included CrossFit’s high-intensity, constantly varied strength and endurance aspects, but with an immediately-accessible combination of movements and exercises. The Goal: A fitness program in which everyone, regardless of their skill level, can immediately join in, and where everyone can see dramatic improvement. The Result: A dynamic, explosive workout that incorporates many of the CrossFit endurance-enhancing, muscle-building exercises – without the sometimes-intimidating heavy barbell lifts and gymnastic bar movements. A program that anyone, from a beginner to a more experienced athlete, can easily participate in. With its motivating atmosphere, great music, and an “in-the-trenches-together” supportive community, LFXFit is a winning recipe of fitness, friendship, and yes, fun! Simply said, LFXFit improves your fitness levels, lean body mass, and physical appearance far beyond what you can achieve in a “regular” gym. What is a typical LFXFit Workout Like? LFXFit workouts, similar to CrossFit, are constantly varied. Each day will be something different to keep you challenged, energized, and always engaged. A typical hour begins with mobility exercises, a warm-up, and review of the workout. Following is the core of the class: a kick-ass, high-intensity, burn. The class ends with a cool-down and stretching to keep your recovery time short: alert, ready for the the day, and for the next workout. Try it out to today and join us for a free class!
