This is The Strength Side. It’s not fancy, but it is very functional. The Strength Side has evolved over the last couple of years to fit the needs of the members of our gym. Used to be, you’d show up, do the class and go home. Unless you were a trainer, then you might do some extra stuff on your own because you had a key.
Now we have competitive CrossFitters, Powerlifters, and Olympic Lifters who all utilize this space. You don’t have to be competitive to use this space though. The Strength Side was developed for those who want to do extra work. I am a big believer in charting your own path when it comes to your fitness because one size doesn’t fit all. Our programming at Utility is true CrossFit, constantly varied, functional movement at high intensity. It works and for most athletes, that’s all you’ll ever want or need. Some athletes want more barbell work and a place to do more strength training. Many people were paying for 2 gym memberships (some still do) to get this extra work accomplished. My hope is this will eliminate the need for 2 gym memberships.
