Short Circuit: A Testimonial from Kristin H.!
For the past couple of weeks, we've been telling you about Short Circuit, a new class utilizing some of the best training methods to give you a great total body workout in just one hour. Each class includes two circuits programmed specifically to help you shed pounds while increasing your strength, stamina, and flexibility. In case you missed it, our resident Pilates expert Kristin H. posted a great comment about her first Short Circuit experience to the blog yesterday:
"Today I took the 9am Short Circuit class for the first time and I just want to make a public plug for it. It was super fun to work on accessory movements that will help my regular crossfit exercises (bicep curls, single leg squats, planks), and the atmosphere was really jovial and sweaty. I liked not having to keep score of my reps and just move through the stations with the music. Also Brett is okay as a coach, I guess. Jkjkjk he's awesome! Try it out if you have the coveted 9am hour free."
Unlike our CrossFit group classes, you don't have to have taken Foundations or have any kind of CrossFit background to participate in Short Circuit, so now you can sweatily bond with your friends and family. Now they'll get to find out what this CFSBK place you've been talking up is all about!
How is this different from CrossFit? While some movements will be familiar, Short Circuit does not include barbell training or higher-skilled calisthenics (like Kipping Pull-Ups or Handstand Push-Ups). You will get a a kick-ass workout, though, and as with our other specialty offerings like Active Recovery, Anti-Gravity, Pilates, and Yoga for Athletes, it's up to you to decide how Short Circuit might fit into your overall training. That's why members with CrossFit Group class memberships can use their existing memberships to attend any of these classes!
