Yelp’s Fit Club got a lot sweatier during our Spring season which was all about practical, real world strength. Where did we visit in the 207 this time around? Check it out!
In April we visited CrossFit Fire of the Gods in Brunswick. They’re all about building a community filled with people who are regaining control of their health, and we got a taste of that during our intense, non-stop 12-minute workout. From squats to rowing and more, we were physically challenged in the best way possible. Check out the Reviews here.Bruce D: “The design of this workout, self paced and competitive, was inclusive and well suited to a diverse group. The overall tone was upbeat, positive and fun. Everyone felt welcomed and valued. This was a five star event, in all aspects.”
In May we spent some time with Foss Fitness ME – Portland’s only boutique personal training and nutrition studio – learning some basic martial arts strikes and kicks… and let’s not forget the serious ab work, too! Photos and Reviews from the day can be found here.
Laura M: “So I will preface this review by saying I’m allergic to working out. I break out in a sweat, I turn red, my breathing gets labored… it’s not pretty! I did enjoy working out at Foss Fitness though. It was both a workout and informative.”
We ended the spring season at our most unique #YelpsFitClub yet: a self-defense class with Discovery Martial Arts. While the subject matter was heavy, the teachers at DMA were encouraging and the friendliest guys in the world despite a bunch of Yelpers *literally* beating them up (all to make the world a safer place!). Check out the Reviews and Photos here!
Jess B: “ASIDE from the serious stuff, the class was FUN!!!!!! We got to ask questions and learn really interesting tricks and tools that we could practice and get ‘feisty’ with. Big or small, we were all MIGHTY by the end of class.”
