LifeBridge Health & Fitness Opens Baltimore's First CrossFit Affiliate
Health & Fitness in Pikesville launches CrossFit Baltimore, the first CrossFit
affiliate in the Baltimore area. CrossFit is a high-intensity workout regime
that accomplishes both strength and conditioning in as little as twenty minutes.
The program was first developed for law enforcement and the military, but it has
now been redesigned for anyone interested in physical fitness. Crossfit has over
300 affiliates nationwide.
CrossFit utilizes many traditional exercises
such as squats, push-ups, and pull-ups in a completely scalable exercise
routine. Scalable exercises are those that can be adjusted to accommodate each
individual's level of physical fitness or strength. CrossFit exercises are
accomplished with the use of many low-tech exercise devices. Participants
use hanging ropes, kettlebells, and even tires to accomplish all of their
strength and conditioning activities.
The intense nature of a
CrossFit workout is demonstrated by the names of the training routines such as
Fight Gone Bad. Since CrossFit is completely scalable, members of all fitness
levels are able to participate in the same workouts as elite athletes.
"As Baltimore's only official CrossFit affiliate LifeBridge Health &
Fitness can guarantee that its programs meet all of the CrossFit standards,”
said Shelley Stein, interim director of LifeBridge Health & Fitness. "In
addition, LifeBridge Health & Fitness can offer CrossFit members the added
benefit of utilizing a full-service health club which many other CrossFit
affiliates around the country do not necessarily offer.”
Baltimore Magazine named LifeBridge Health & Fitness one of the best health
clubs in Baltimore.
LifeBridge Health & Fitness is a member of
LifeBridge Health, a regional health care organization, which includes Sinai Hospital of
Hospital, Levindale Hebrew Geriatric
Center and Hospital, Jewish Convalescent &
Nursing Home, and related subsidiaries and affiliates.
