How to Shed Those Pounds in 2017

Many Coast residents woke up this morning ready to stick to their New Year’s resolution to get into shape and shed some pounds.
Studies show whipping yourself into shape is annually the number one resolution anyone makes to start the new year. If you’re planning to hit the gym, any gym will likely do, but if you’re looking for something different, CrossFit could be for you. The sport is defined as ‘constantly varied, functional movement performed at high intensity.’

When you back squat or deadlift or bench press, you’re doing all that weight. The beauty is, as you come in, it’s an hour and you don’t have to think about what you’re doing.
