Callie On The Job: CrossFit Little Egypt

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG -- CrossFit is a workout program involving weight lifting, cardio and gymnastics. Callie visited Crossfit Little Egypt in Harrisburg in this week's Callie On The Job.

If you're looking for variety, then CrossFit might be for you.

Kristin King opened up CrossFit Little Egypt in Harrisburg nearly three years ago. 

Since then she's not only seen her gym grow, but the athletes grow as well. 

"We're teaching you to come in here and do weight lifting one day, we may be focused on power lifting or Olympic lifting, and then the next day you're doing speed work or you're rowing or running," King said. 

She said, "It's an atmosphere where people come in and they're comfortable. They want to cheer everyone on. You're building friendships in the gym. Sometimes we're struggling through some really tough workouts together."

The workouts are all scalable based on each person's fitness level.  When you come into the gym there's a specific workout of the day listed on the board.

Each workout involves multiple exercises. You try to do as many times through the exercise list as you can in the given amount of time. 

"Come and try it. Your first class is free so if you're intimidated and you want a one on one session, we have trainers that are available to walk you through something solo. If you're comfortable in a class come and see our environment and there's CrossFit gyms all around. We have some really good gym communities in our areas," King said.
