CrossFit Eminence – Thornton
CrossFit Broadway – Denver
CrossFit is huge in Denver and around the country. Tell me something I don’t know, right? Whether you’ve tried it or not, or whether you like it or not; you cannot deny that CrosFit has had a major impact on the fitness community. CrossFit has helped inspire woman to lift weights heavier than 5 lbs. The images of strong women lifting heavy weights being posted and reposted on social media are so inspiring!
Recently, I traveled abroad and worked out at a gym where there was a 10 x10 women’s area equipped with light, handheld weights. The larger, free weight area where all the heavy weights, dumbbells and barbells were, had no women pumping iron. Yep, you guessed it- it was full of muscle-popping men in their 20’s & 30’s. Such an old stereotype! I could feel the sense of intimidation surrounding the “heavy free weight” area. Oh, you know I sat myself down on a bench in the Manly Muscle Pop area and did shoulder presses with the heaviest weight I could lift (without injury of course). Needless to say, that workout became a heavy lift day for me. I’m sure I proved nothing, but I enjoyed it.
Recently, FitLo Denver visited CrossFit Eminence in Thornton, Co. I was impressed by their friendly CrossFit community. The owners, Lindsey and Kris, met while deployed in the military. Lindsey introduced Kris to CrossFit. Soon they got hitched and opened CrossFit Eminence in June of 2011. Kris and Lindsey are a sweet couple with an awesome CrossFit gym. They’re all about helping people increase their fitness, working hard and being KIND. I felt it! The members were easy to talk to and they wholeheartedly welcomed FitLo Denver to their Monday evening class. What a fun group! AND, the view out of the back garage doors is spectacular! (You can see it in the background of the video.) Check out FitLo’s interview with Lindsey & Kris, owners & head coaches of CrossFit Eminence.
FitLo also visited CrossFit Broadway a couple months ago and interviewed Jason Kelly, owner & head trainer of CrossFit Broadway-another stellar CrossFit gym. If you love CrossFit or if you are CrossFit curious, I highly recommend that you check out these CrossFit gyms: CrossFit Eminence (Thornton) and CrossFit Broadway (Denver).
