At this week's Rotary meeting, we were joined by Sara Konz, a personal trainer at Kainos Community CrossFit, to discuss Kainos offerings to the community, the senior population and their growth in their two years of business.

During the meeting, Sara talked about the offerings of Kainos Community CrossFit. It's not just for those wanting to push themselves to their physical limit.
Kainos also offers yoga classes, pilates workouts, personal training and sports training!
For older adults, they discuss the need for workouts for functional movement, such as squats (sitting), deadlifts (carrying groceries), cleans (picking up your kids / grandkids / pets), overhead press (putting something on a taller shelf). Everyone can start at a level that is comfortable for them and work their way up, and having these movements be sound decreases the risk of falls, injuries, aches and pains.
Kainos also offers Nutrition Coaching, Massage Therapy and plans to ask a Kids Camp this summer to promote healthy habits and movement.
Kainos offers FREE classes at the Pilot Point Community Center (310 S Washington) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10-11a. These classes are age appropriate and focus on resistance training, core and balance and improved cardio.
Sara also shared the plans for the upcoming Murph Fundraiser, happening May 25 at 9 a.m. This is an extreme CrossFit workout in honor of Michael Murphy, a late Navy SEAL, that consists of two 1-mile runs, 100 pull ups, 200 sit-ups and 300 squats. Proceeds go to the Pilot Point Fire Department. The community is invited to come and witness those completing the Murph. There will be a water slide for children, as well as breakfast prepared by the Fire Department.
