Crossfit 280, the latest Birmingham branch to offer the Crossfit workout program, is now open in Greystone Park. The site holds regular classes on weekdays that can be personalized to fit any level of physical conditioning, said owner Kevin Williams.
Williams said workouts at Crossfit 280 are comprised of various functional movements at varying intensity meant to achieve fast results for those dedicated to the program. Workouts are set in a sport atmosphere with a coach.
Williams said he was a testament to the effectiveness of the Crossfit program. Before he began, he was a cyclist who could ride 100 miles at a time, he said. Then, in 2008, he stumbled into a Crossfit gym.
“I thought I was in shape, but that first workout exposed a lot of weaknesses in my physical capacity,” he said. “Since then, I’ve trained in the Crossfit modality and last year I was certified to be an instructor.”
Williams said classes include about eight to 10 people and one coach, and are held Monday-Friday at 5:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m., noon and 6:30 p.m. The gym is also open Saturday from 8 a.m.-9 a.m.
Crossfit 280 is located at 5511 Highway 280, Suite 122. To sign up for free session or learn more, visit crossfit280.com, or call 202-1FIT (202-1348).
