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

CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity.

OrangeTheory Fitness

We had a chance to check out OrangeTheory Fitness as my neighbor organized a group workout.  I have never taken a spin class, but it kind of felt like that vibe.  The group was divided into two, with half the class doing run/row and half the class doing calisthenics.  Halfway through the class we switched.

The run/row was made up of baseline and intensity.

The calisthenics were rounds for time.

I did get a good workout and the group workout is motivating.  It has been a while since I trained based on heart rate.  I do think, I should get another heart rate monitor.

The facility was clean, safe, organized and well staffed.

It is a little pricey given the class to instructor ratio.
