CrossFit starts with a belief in fitness. Manta Ray aims to forge a broad, general, and inclusive fitness. CrossFit is a fitness program that will prepare you for all physical contingencies including exercise, work, competition, and even caring for your family! CrossFit, by definition, is “Constantly Varied Functional Movements performed at High Intensity.” This means we use a mixture of Body Weight Exercises, Kettlebells, Medicine Balls, Barbells, Plyometrics, Running, Rowing, and much more. We program your workouts so that your body gets a great mixture of all exercises with an optimal variation, and at a pace that will condition your heart and lungs safely. Our method ensures that you get great results without the frustration of plateauing! Still with us?!
CrossFit Manta Ray offers a very safe and effective approach for our community. We want our members to have great results fast. This is why we have developed Frame Strength and Mechanics (FSM). This is based on the proven science that nerves control all functions of your body including energy, digestion, balance, weight loss, performance, etc. So, at Manta Ray we want to improve those awesome functions of yours. We use FSM to strengthen your posture and frame during exercise and in your everyday life. By implementing FSM and improving these essential functions, you will notice results faster, you will perform better in your daily activities, and most importantly you will improve your quality of life!

Our community members have options to train or participate in additional activities such as nutritional challenges, specialty seminars, exercise challenges (5 Ks, Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, etc.), and other exciting events led by your coaching staff.

With all the information constantly emerging on health, getting fit can sometimes seem like an overwhelming task.
