The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors welcomed new Chamber member, 936 CrossFit, located at 139 Catco Dr., with a ribbon cutting on January 14. Chamber Executive Director, Pam Phelps, introduced owners, Grant Belrose and Tyler Touch, and ask Grant to introduce his staff and family that were in attendance.
Grant stated that "The biggest question I get is, 'what is crossfit?' and 'what do we do?' and really the best way to answer that is to get in here and try," said Belrose. "What we define crossfit as, we have three big bullet points of crossfit and that's functional movement, constantly varied and high intensity."
Belrose explained you don't have to be in his facility to do a crossfit workout, as it can be done anywhere. The type of workout is different in that it doesn't rely on machines for the most part, instead it is more about body motion. "We're really big on functional movement, and that means as far as just picking stuff up, putting stuff overhead, moving light weights for a long period of time," said Belrose.
936 CrossFit has a fitness program for children. CrossFit Kids is a program they started to get kids active by keeping fitness fun. Belrose explained, starting a good fitness foundation with children will help them to have a better health and fitness awareness as they get older.
936 CrossFit is open all week. Monday, Wednesdayand Friday there are classes at 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. All week there are classes at 8 a.m., 12-noon,4:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Clients receive coaching and workouts that will help them look and feel much healthier.
