Remember group sports? Motivation came easy with competition, right? Try that theory out with a group workout session at CrossFit of Lakewood. Placed in a group of two or ten — or even more — your 40-minute workout regimen will be laid out in front of you like a field of hot coals. And this place keeps score, logging times and weight at every turn. When is the last time you hit an oversized tire with a sledgehammer for your workout? If that's too overbearing, owner-trainers Staci and Bill will gladly help you set up a solo program for you and your iPod. Membership doesn't come cheap, but neither does inspiration.
