When the owners of the new CrossFit Max Force in Ahwatukee Foothills first tried crossfit years ago they all said it was amazing the results they saw from a half-hour workout.

“I’ve worked out my entire life in triathlons and running, but this is by far the best shape I’ve ever been in,” said Bonnie Atilano, who opened the new crossfit with her husband, George, and partners Chip Cripe and Sonny Aziz.

Bonnie saw a small advertisement for crossfit two years ago and said it took her months to work up the courage to try it out. Once she was in she knew it was just the workout she was looking for to get out of the rut she’d been stuck in. Bonnie enjoyed it so much she convinced her husband to try it, became a trainer, and eventually the two became part-owners of a crossfit gym in Chandler, Crossfit Inferno.

“What I found was that at crossfit I just had to show up and I knew I’d get through the workout,” George said. “What I discovered was that before when I was going to a regular gym where you do your own thing I had a hard time making it through my work out. I had to come up with what I was going to do before I got there, I just kind of ad-libbed it while I was there. It was easy for me to get out of that workout. At crossfit it’s already programmed and you’re in an environment that really motivates you to get through the workout. I think that’s what a lot of people find.”

Crossfit is a form of fitness that uses circuit training at high intensity to train a broad range of people. Each class is small in size and led by a trainer who focuses on making sure each movement is correct to avoid injury. The group atmosphere is designed to help motivate each member. Crossfit workouts are designed to be about 30 minutes or less so that even the busiest person can still see results.

The owners of CrossFit Max Force said while some crossfit gyms may specialize in weight lifting or cardio endurance they really try to make their workouts work for any body type.

“It’s to everyone’s own intensity,” Bonnie said. “That’s what I love about it. It doesn’t matter if I’m not doing it as prescribed in the workout but I can modify the move or the weight. My intensity level is still there because that’s what I’m capable of doing.”

CrossFit Max Force is located at 9831 S. 51st St., Suite D-131. For more information, visit crossfitmaxforce.com or call (480) 577-7812.
