You’ve probably heard people talking about the Open and the CrossFit Games and such and you might be wondering what’s going on and how this all works. If so, this…..
. . .and why you should try it too! A guest post from Alise Knickerbocker Growing up, the majority of my free time was consumed by sports. I started swimming…..
It’s time to play Zenith Bingo! It’s about time for a monthly challenge here at FIT Wallingford | CrossFit Zenith! We’re going to play BINGO! Here’s how it will work:…..
"CrossFit Zenith is by far the warmest, most welcoming gym I've been to. Plus you get a great workout! When you walk through the purple door, you are met by coaches and owners who care about their members, make you feel welcome and make you part of the family. You get a great workout and walk out feeling faster, stronger and more confident. I would recommend CFZ to anyone. It doesn't matter what stage of life you are in, where you are in your fitness...this is a great place for everyone!! "− Robyne Weir Gioco
"CrossFit Zenith is pure heart and soul. Passion does a body good."− David Will
"I have been a member for almost a year now and it's one of my favorite parts of the day. I love the challenge of crossfit and the results that come from giving it your all everyday. The coaches are very knowledgeable and actually want you to succeed and improve everyday. If you want to change your life and get healthy this is the place for you. Give it a shot you have nothing to lose. "− Jason Morehouse
"Becoming a member of this gym was one of the best decisions I have made in my adult life. Great people, great atmosphere, and truly a great workout. I would never have thought I could do Crossfit, based purely on the fact I heard it was "really hard" and I was not in good shape. Well, it is really hard, but YOU CAN DO IT! The coaches here are terrific - they make sure you push yourself to be the best you can be at YOUR fitness level, and you will quickly start to see yourself become more confident and stronger. The other members are encouraging - this is not a gym with a lot of egos...just a lot of support and a terrific workout. Try it, you will love it!"− Lauren Storer
"The real "happiest place on earth", or at least the best part of MY day! I have always been someone who goes to the gym sporadically at best, since my intrinsic motivation to work out lacks at times. But after a year and a half span of illness related to near-constant migraines & other health issues, I knew I needed to find some way to reset my body & get healthy again. I finally found my fitness home here at CrossFit Zenith. I came for the prospect of getting healthier. I stayed because of the super supportive community of members, the wonderful owners, & the very knowledgeable coaches who insist on proper form & provide consistent training. I tried another CrossFit & did not receive half the guidance & support I've gotten here. For those who may be scared to try CrossFit, or have heard other negative experiences, please come give Zenith a try. I promise it is so very different from other places. And yes, you really can scale the workouts to any skill level. The confidence you gain from succeeding in tiny increments during workouts actually carries over into other areas of your life. I love being part of the CrossFit Zenith family!!!"− Krystal Champagne
"It's the perfect location and the best Box I've ever been to. If you're looking to begin your CrossFit journey and want to surround yourself with awesome people, who are not only amazing and positive but, SO supportive and encouraging.. look no further. CrossFit Zenith is that place! You'll make friends and you'll feel like a family member from the second you step foot in the door. I consider CFZ my home away from home. The coaches/owners are fantastic! They are very knowledgeable and will encourage you to meet your goals; whatever it is you're looking to accomplish. Coach Brian and Mike will help you get there. As they say, "It's your journey". Since starting in March 2015, I've not only become happier and slimmer but, I've become stronger and healthier. The gym is comfortable, clean and they have the equipment you need. After a workout you'll feel beat, but you'll feel confident and accomplished!! I'm beyond proud to be a part of CrossFit Zenith! "− Carmela Esposito
"To say that this is a great gym is an understatement! After years of inconsistently going to the normal 24 hour type gyms, I made the plunge for CrossFit trying out Zenith and haven't looked back. The coaches and other members (whom I gladly call friends) are wonderful. Being not originally from CT and moving here after college, this was a great way to meet a lot of great people! CrossFit Zenith makes you look forward to going to the gym all day!"− Pete DeSantis

History of CrossFit
CrossFit was formally established in 2000 by Greg Glassman. By 2005 there were 13 affiliate gyms. Because of the incredible results people have seen, there are now over 10,000 CrossFit affiliate gyms worldwide, making it the largest fitness organization in the world. How do you argue with those results? One of the best articles, published by “The Box” magazine, outlines the history of CrossFit. One of CrossFit’s largest strengths is that it is scalable and usable by anyone at any age. There are 80 year old people using CrossFit to stay healthy, 350lb + people using CrossFit to lose weight, and 5 year old children using it to learn about fitness. Even the US Military uses the methodology to train it’s Special Forces.
CrossFit founder Greg Glassman realized that specializing in one athletic domain meant losing the ability of the athlete to perform in others. Think of the strength capacity of a marathon runner, or the endurance capacity of a power lifter? They gave up one capacity for another. Greg’s goal was to determine the “Best methodology to determine and produce the fittest humans on the plant”. His discovery was that by mixing the best training disciplines of other sports, we could become the best and most fit versions of ourselves. What is athleticism? It is being able to perform optimally in the following modal domains: cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy.
CrossFit is the most effective way to do this, in the least amount of time. 10,000 gyms and hundreds of thousands of people can’t be wrong. If you are in or near Wallingford, Hamden, North Haven or the surrounding area come join a CrossFit Gym who values you as an individual and wants to help you achieve your goals.
