Your body is better conditioned to work for you.</p> <p>For example, your body is built to squat. That&#39;s something that can be harder to do with any stamina if you haven&#39;t developed your muscles appropriately.</p> <p>&quot;I spent three years in Afghanistan and every meeting for me was in a squat,&quot; Wakefield said. &quot;I was like, &#39;oh, I&#39;ve got to squat again,&#39; but that&#39;s what your body is supposed to do.&nbsp; Cross training teaches your body to go back and use the movement it&#39;s supposed to.&quot;</p> <p>Wakefield, a certified Cross Fit trainer, is the cross training coach at Oakfield Fitness and Cross Training Center, 116 North Main St., Oakfield.</p> <p>Oakfield fitness recently moved into a larger building with an expanded cross training center.</p> <p>Wakefield said cross training is a suitable physical fitness program for just about anybody, whether you&#39;re already athletic or haven&#39;t worked out in years and need to lose weight.</p> <p>&quot;You can do every workout to your own ability, which is awesome and I love it,&quot; Wakefield said. &quot;Even as a trainer, I&#39;m not as strong as some of these guys, but I lower the weight to my ability and I do what I can do. I&#39;ve got an older lady, in her 60s, who&#39;s here everyday. She can do the workout. It&#39;s scaled to her.&quot;</p> <p>Cross training, by definition is a constantly varied functional workout. Every session is different and it&#39;s not just about lifting weights and working specific muscles. You won&#39;t come in one day thinking, &quot;this is my day to work my biceps&quot; as you would with traditional fitness regimes.</p> <p>&quot;We&#39;ve been taught for years that &#39;today I&#39;m going to do by bi&#39;s and back and tomorrow my tri&#39;s and chest,&#39;&quot; Wakefield said. &quot;Cross training is breaking out of that model of isolated muscle movement. It&#39;s whole body, functional fitness.&quot;</p> <p>The program also includes seminars on nutrition.</p> <p>&quot;You can workout every day, but if your nutrition is off, it&#39;s not going to work,&quot; Wakfield said. &quot;Cross training isn&#39;t who is the fittest. We want to get you healthy.&quot;</p> <p>Since cross training is usually a daily workout with a regular group of people, and the classes become more like a group of friends.</p> <p>That&#39;s one of the things that kept Wakefield interested cross training once he got started.</p> <p>&quot;We get to know each other,&quot; Wakefield said. &quot;We get to know each other&#39;s families. We get to know each other&#39;s strengths and goals. We clap harder for the person who is last trying to finish up than the person who is done first.&quot;</p> <p>It costs $80 per month to take part in cross training at Oakfield Fitness, and that includes full 24/7 access to the entire gym.</p> <p>For more information, visit <a href="" target="_blank"></a>.</p> <p><img alt="" src="/files/users/60/2014-2/oakfieldfitness_set2march22-3.jpg" /></p> <p>More pictures after the jump:</p><div class="read-more"><a href="/batavian/sponsored-post-cross-training-oakfield-fitness-provides-functional-health/41935#more" title="Read the rest of Sponsored Post: Cross training at Oakfield Fitness provides functional health." rel="nofollow"><strong>Read more &raquo;</strong></a></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> advertisement fitness health Oakfield Oakfield Fitness and Cross Training Sun, 23 Mar 2014 23:55:04 +0000 The Batavian 41935 at Sponsored post: Celebrate St. Patrick's Day at T.F.
