CrossFit - Greg Glassman
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports. - Greg Glassman

5 minutes rowing on the water rower. Very different and better feel than Concept 2 Rower
5 rounds of hold for 10-15 seconds. No missed kick ups.
20 inches, 24 inches and 30 inches. Felt very comfortable at 30 inches. Could not bring myself to try 36 inches. I love the plyosoft jump boxes.
Wall ball shots with 8 and 14 lb wall balls.
KB swings with 25 and 35 lb KB
Tried the weird Smith Machine by Hoist. Did not care for it.
A few pull-ups
DB biceps curls (25, 30 and 35 lb)
Single Arm DB bench press 45 lb
5 minutes cool down in the cardio theater.
Overall, Chuze Fitness is a pretty nice facility. Reminded me a lot of Planet Fitness, except with a nice turf area. Lack of free weights is a deal breaker. Pool looked OK, but warm (85 degrees).
I also stopped by Tru Fit athletic clubs. Nice free weight area, plyo boxes, heavy bags and even a GHD. Good variety of classes. Typically have to sign up for a full year, but Walter was willing to let me go month to month. Class offerings look pretty good.
