You don’t use fancy machines during your regular life, so it follows– at least according to CrossFit theory– that you don’t need fancy machines to get in shape.

The Daily Progress & Charlottesville Women “Change it Up with CrossFit“
But one of the main things that sets apart CrossFit Charlottesville from other gyms, is the camaraderie between the people there. The trainers are very interactive, making sure your form is correct, but also there to push you to your full potential, not letting you quit and cheering you on! The small group setting allows you to also workout with like minded people who are going through the same grueling workout. The #1 rule at the gym is “No Egos Allowed.” While others can help push you to do better in some friendly competition, you need to remember each person has their strengths and weaknesses and you shouldn’t compare yourself to others. It’s all about pushing yourself to do better and improving on what you’ve previously done.
