One of the newest members of the Norwalk community is grateful to have found a home after a long search for just the right location for their business.
Crossfit50211 started looking for that perfect place in Norwalk about two years ago and just opened their doors in June of this year, making them a new business with a big dream. While there are many fitness centers to choose from, Crossfit50211 is unique in that they personalize everything for their members.
"Our services are more specific and directed towards high intensity training with an individual approach (vs. 'one size fits all') and includes CrossFit, Performance Development and Personal Training," Mason Zimmerman told Norwalk Times.
One of their most significant competitors is Anytime FItness,which has a "globo gym" business model.
"The business model in a normal or 'globo gym' assumes you sign up for a lower monthly rate and rarely come in and/or require little assistance/coaching. Typically, you are on your own with nobody to program for you, check your form, or help you with every aspect of your workout," ZImmerman said. "Anytime Fitness has memberships starting at $34.95. They do offer a wide variety of amenities and services that are chargeable over and above the membership fee."
Unlike Anytime Fitness, Crossfit50211 works one-on-one with their members to help them achieve their personal goals.
"Our expectation here at Crossfit50211 is that individuals will come four or more times a week to attend classes and/or open gym, work on skills and expand their fitness," Zimmerman said. "With our gym you’re getting a gym membership/space to workout, small group training, programming, technique help, competitive push, nutrition advice and support from the group. You will receive advice from our coaches and our members to help you have a healthy lifestyle."
