CrossFit comes to Marysville

MARYSVILLE — CrossFit recently opened at 5603 47th Ave. NE in Marysville, and its trainers are inviting everyone join in for beginner, intermediate or advanced "sweat session" workouts.

Noah Pester, co-owner of the CrossFit in Marysville, touted it as offering a unique culmination of gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting and cross-functional movements designed for all levels of fitness, with thousands of CrossFit affiliates across the world.

CrossFit founder Greg Glassman explained that the CrossFit program is designed for "universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual regardless of experience. We've used the same routines for elderly individuals with heart disease as for cage fighters one month out from televised bouts. We scale load and intensity. We don't change programs."

Pester and fellow Marysville firefighter Keoni Brown co-own and operate CrossFit Marysville along with Washington State Trooper Joel Anderson of Granite Falls. The gym is also a proud sponsor of the Wildcats, a local girls softball team.

For more information, you may call Pester at 425-280-4629 or log onto the CrossFit Marysville website at www.crossfitmarysville.com.
