CrossFit gym opens in downtown Detroit

- CrossFit is the hardcore workout craze that swept the nation. Now, CrossFit lovers can break a sweat at Crossfit D, a new state-of-the-art workout facility in downtown Detroit.

Classes are intense from start to finish - a true power hour. Just when you think it's time to cool down, they tell you that was just the warm up.

"If you go long, slow jogs, you're not going to lose the weight you want to lose; you're not going to get stronger; you're not going to get faster. But if you sprint, if you lift heavy things, if you do things heavy and fast you will get exactly what it is you're looking for, which is to become fitter," says the gym's owner, Dave Finlay.
