Koncepts is the Holy Grail of the modern 'garage' gym, offering high quality and experienced training in a great facility. It offers a more considered approach to the CrossFit brand than many other gyms bearing the name, and uniquely features kettlebells as its preferred tool of strength and conditioning. The barbells, boxes, etc. are present and feature frequently of course, but Mike has decades of experience with the kettlebell (and various martial arts) and a seemingly infinite pool of knowledge regarding their use.
The workouts have a great atmosphere and there is a real community feel to the place. You will be made welcome and allowed to learn and integrate at your own pace. Unlike many places the coaching never stops and you'll feel like you are always learning new skills and improving. Mike will find what specifically works for you and make sure that you understand how to get better - you won't just have the same 'cue' yelled at you over and over again with the expectation that you'll 'get it' the hundredth time.
Having suffered through the darker side of the typical CrossFit gym, I can safely say that Koncepts provides a welcoming, sincere, and experienced environment that is focused on making people stronger and healthier safely. This is the only gym I will ever need, and if I ever leave the area I might have to find a way to take it with me...
