Recently my bride and I were invited to try out our friend Todd Katz’s “Hammer down cross fit” training program at his home. As an athlete who likes interval training sessions and respects the incredible results of English mile champion Sebastian Coe, who mixed calisthenics with explosive movements and continuous movement, I was keen to see what Hammer Down Cross Fit was all about. Todd had told me that Cross Fit can help with sports injury prevention, posture and core strength – all good things for this triathlon trial lawyer.
Several friends have been training through the winter with Katz, who is an exceptional runner and competes in long distance road races. First of all, it was cold. Hard core cold. Don’t take off your mittens cold, as we lifted dumbbells, did push ups, sit ups and other exercises outdoors on a frigid morning. There was some running also involved, and the “regulars” seemed to feed off the energy and each other. Todd recorded repetitions, tines and PRs and most looked like they were having fun. My wife’s favorite part was the hot coffee afterwards. I liked snack time. Todd now has a permanent INDOOR location in Chantilly, and many videos showing you the exercise routines. So, if you want something different, give Cross Fit a try ! Call Todd and visit his Chantilly fitness studio and see if what Cross Fit training has for you,
