Florida welcomes its newest Crossfit Affiliate:
CrossFit For Glory
Grand Opening December 3rd, 2011
Lithia, Florida– “All Glory Comes From Daring to Begin” CrossFit For Glory (CFG) urges the community to do just that — BEGIN ! As a new 2400 sq ft fitness facility (nicknamed by CrossFitters as “The Box”) opening on Lithia Pinecrest Road, CFG challenges its members by using barbells, kettlebells, gymnastics, medicine balls, plyometrics, running and Olympic lifts to get their athletes in peak physical shape.
Far from being exclusive to elite athletes, CrossFit For Glory trains all members, no matter the skill or fitness level, to become as fit as possible, using tested means of general physical preparedness. Their goal: to be physically and mentally prepared for the unknown and unknowable.
Owner and trainer, Josh Martin, received his degree in Exercise and Sports Science from the University of Florida in 2006. He completed an internship with The International Performance Institute (IPI) in Bradenton, Florida and also worked as a Strength and Conditioning Coach for the New York Yankees. In 2009, Josh began training with a local CrossFit affiliate. He was amazed at how the programming of CrossFit meshed together so many movements and fundamentals he found beneficial for his athletes and himself. In addition, Josh appreciates the sense of community within CrossFit, and how each member motivates and supports one another. This reactivated his passion for training and coaching and in 2011, he became a Certified CrossFit Trainer.
Within CrossFit For Glory, you will find top of the line programming, coaching, and a warm environment to help you reach your fitness goals. Josh states, ” I wanted to open a CrossFit affiliate to change peoples’ lives and positively affect the surrounding community. I want to help create the stories of people quitting their diabetes medications, overcoming injuries, and pass along the passion for training I have recaptured. In short, I want to help fuel a revolution in health and fitness across the world, but it will start in the small local box of our community!”
Join CrossFit For Glory at their grand opening on December 3rd, 2011 from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. Throughout the day there will be demo workouts, question and answer sessions with the trainer, facility tours, and food and drinks.
