Letrono, the Greek word for Redemption, is the motto of our gym, our trainers, and our athletes. We see our fitness, and in essence CrossFit itself, as our Redemption; whether it be redemption from our pasts, from our failures, from our shortcomings, from our enemies, from our friends, or even from our own self and soul. We, as the founders, owners and coaches at Letrono have a unified purpose, and that is to act as a constant, steady guide to our athletes as they pave the way towards their own personal redemption as it applies to their fitness. Our coaches are top-notch, having decades of combined experience and expertise, training and tenacity. We love those whom we coach and teach, and in the end, it is us that learn far more from them than they may ever possibly learn from us. That is what Letrono, or “Redemption”, is all about.
Our programming is leading-edge, always evolving and never stagnant or mediocre. Great care and planning, including meticulous attention to the individual and general needs and goals of our athletes, goes into judicially and prudently guiding and gauging the workouts we provide, each and every day. We as coaches are committed first and foremost to the safety of our athletes. We believe that the programming never changes; only the load and intensity are scaled to accommodate the needs and various situations of our athletes.
Not only to we strive and demand excellence of ourselves for our adult athletes, but we have made it our mission, a literal movement of sort, to bring fitness, athleticism and general, lasting health to our children, so they can develop, from a young age, a strong foundation of fitness and health that will carry over into their adulthood, to their friends, and eventually to their own families. Our very own Sara Huntsman has single-handedly championed the cause of kids and fitness and intends to never give up imparting her love of fitness to the future athletes and examples of health of the world, the kids.
We also specialize in providing additional endurance-specific training to those athletes that pursue distance or endurance sports, ranging from a 5k to an Ironman, 100-mile bike races to open-water swimming. We have coaches that hold endurance-specific certifications, with years of personal experience as well as coaching experience to help you achieve any and all endurance-related goals you may have.
Letrono is proud of the fact that we not only focus on mobility, but mobility is integral in our daily workout-of-the-day (WOD) programming. What is mobility and why is it necessary? Well, according to the ten physical fitness domains, flexibility (also known as mobility) is not only on the list, but in the top four. Despite the fact that flexibility is one of the focal points of CrossFit, it continues to be a weakness in most athletes’ training regimens. According to the top ten fitness domains, flexibility is of equal importance as more attractive and engaging attributes such as strength and stamina. The truth is this: lacking flexibility in critical areas is absolutely crushing to the athletic ability of any individual, whether professional or amateur. Mobility vastly improves strength and speed, as well as all the other aspects of fitness. At Letrono CrossFit, we are grateful to have one of our coaches, Heath_________, who holds a CrossFit Mobility Certification, which is highly specialized and relatively uncommon. Our athletes are constantly under mobility’s constant watchful eye; and they are seeing outstanding progress in their lifts, their functional movement, and their strength and speed because of it.
