For the past six months Zach Wilson has been kicking people’s butts, in a good way. He’s the owner of CrossFit Undeniable, a new CrossFit gym in Westminster, and his goal is to get people out of their comfort zones and into the best shape of their lives.
“I want to help people have a better overall quality of life,” he said.
“It’s not easy, it’s hard and a lot of work, but it’s so worth it when people are doing things they never thought possible.”
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program concentrated on constant, varied, functional movements performed at high intensity to achieve overall physical fitness.
Wilson, a former marine, got hooked on the exercise in 2008 after being introduced to it by a friend.
During a deployment in Iraq, Wilson’s intensity to CrossFit grew and he realized he wanted to also coach CrossFit.
“I realized I had a gift for coaching. I could really relate to all different types of people,” he said.
“After that, I decided I wanted to open my own gym.”
CrossFit Undeniable opened in Westminster in January. Since then, Wilson said business has steadily grown.
To reach out even further into the community, Wilson is hosting a grand opening event on July 13 at the gym, 7535 W 92nd Ave. The event will feature a fitness competition allowing people from the area to test their fitness skills. Wilson said anyone is welcome to compete. The cost is $25 per person.
“People from local gyms or other CrossFit gyms can come out and try,” he said.
“The winner has bragging rights for being the most fit in the area. And after the competition there will be a barbecue and raffle.”
The competition is also an opportunity for people to come and check out CrossFit in action.
Wilson said this type of exercise in not the typical gym work out, it’s varies every day and challenges a person in ways the elliptical can’t.
“When you show up at my CrossFit gym, you don’t have to think, the work out, it’s right there for you on the board telling you exactly what to do,” he said.
“It never gets old. All you have to do is work your butt off, and you will see results. It throws people out of their element, but it’s worth it.”
Joel Maxfield is a coach and member of CrossFit Undeniable. He’s been doing CrossFit for seven months and is already
He said his life’s never been the same since taking up the intense work out.
“I can do things I have never been able to do like pull-ups or climbing a rope. Things I never thought were possible, but can do easily now” he said.
“I’m extremely passionate about CrossFit. I’ve never been in this kind of shape or felt this good at 30 years old.”
