By now you’ve probably already heard all about crossfit — a high intensity training program that blends weightlighting, gymnastics, circuit training, and aerobic exercise.  But perhaps its best known for its loyal followers, so much so that crossfit has become a way of life.  There is a reason for the fervor, crossfit is one of the best cross disciplined exercises you can do for your body and mind. So if you’re ready to join in on the craze, here’s a few great spots in our downtown City West ‘hood!
