Crossfit Outbreak Expands Its Selection of Fitness Classes

Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) February 11, 2015

Crossfit Outbreak, Fort Greene’s first crossfit gym, is diversifying its range of fitness classes by adding classes in Capoeira, indoor rowing, yoga and boot camp exercise.

These new class offerings come as a near-direct result of the rapid growth the gym has seen since it first opened its doors last fall, says Co-President Adam Sturm. In addition, Crossfit Outbreak’s mission is to provide people with a well-rounded, comprehensive way to achieve fitness.

“We have been fortunate to experience very fast growth. In three months we have more than 150 active members,” Sturm says. “We want all our members to be well-rounded athletes. Our programs deliver a level of fitness that is, by design, broad, general and inclusive. Our specialty is not specializing.”

Capoeira, a martial art originating from Brazil that combines elements of dance and acrobatics, is an increasingly-popular way for people to get fit by practicing quick, complex moves along to music. Crossfit Outbreak’s Capoeira course is led by Pena Verde, an instructor from Salvador, Brazil.

“Verde started practicing Capoeira when he was 15 years old with Mestre Sabia, the coordinator of The Association of Ginga Mundo Capoeira,” Sturm explains. “It’s incredibly exciting to have someone with such world-class experience show our members how much fun Capoeira can be.”

The new classes are already highly popular among Crossfit Outbreak’s members, Sturm says. In addition, Sturm says he doesn’t know of other crossfit gyms that offer this many different classes to their members.

“Our members are very excited,” he says. “Our rowing classes are regularly sold out and we are just rolling out the Capoeira classes. Yoga has been a big hit and boot camp is a great way to work out without weights. By offering programs that are broad and inclusive, we hope to attract and keep members longer and to keep them healthy and fit for many years.”
