What is CrossFit and how can it help me? We get the answers from North Hollywood’s Vault CrossFit
The NoHo Arts District dot come team likes to spotlight the many unique businesses that make their home in the NoHo arts community. So let’s give a big North Hollywood welcome to Chanida Sintuu, the owner of Vault CrossFit and get to know more about this type of work out.
What is CrossFit?
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program that combines elements of endurance, Olympic weightlifting and gymnastics. It’s aim is to forge an elite as well as inclusive fitness. We provide a motivating community amongst coaches and your fellow athletes who come to make health and fitness a priority in their lifestyles.
What are the benefits of CrossFit?
If you’re the type of person who moseys into a gym, does a round of bench presses, chats it up and then eases your way through a light workout, then CrossFit is going to be a serious wake up call. CrossFit is a concentrated way of exercising and it burns the system in a good way. You will go balls to the walls and reach your goals faster. Effort is key in CrossFit. Many actors and dancers use CrossFit to prepare for their demanding roles and tours.
What makes CrossFit unique?
You will beat workout boredom. Period. Plus you start making friends with people that are here with us all week which is hard in L.A.
How good is CrossFit for losing weight and keeping it off?
The fast paced repetitions and the constant movement puts your body into extreme workout mode so you will see results quickly. It is straight up efficiency.
Do I have to be in shape to start CrossFit?
Not at all!! This is the most common reason people give for waiting to try something that seems so intimidating like CrossFit. That’s like asking someone to immediately start swimming prior to any lessons! The unknown is always intimidating, but you must start somewherr and the hardest step is making the commitment to yourself to begin your CrossFit journey. Our workouts are tailored for the beginners to the elite athletes.
What made you locate to NoHo?
I chose the NoHo Arts District as Vault’s home because of the talent and drive of the neighborhood. This place has grown and developed at lightening speed due to the strong knit community here. It’s been quite an experience to witness. I was drawn to that youthful energy and wanted to contribute by offering a way for our neighbors to continue to better their lives as a whole and CrossFit is that vehicle.
Anything else you would like to add?
We have showers at our facility and we offer towel service for your convenience! We also offer other classes to compliment your CrossFit training such as yoga, kickboxing and dynamics (high intensity interval training). Ask about student, first responder, and group/corporate discounts!
