297. Marketplace: Fitness for All Ages at CrossFit Barrington

 If a renewed focus on fitness will make your list of new years resolutions for 2013, there’s one guy in Barrington who you should meet.  His name is Brian Niven, he’s one of the owners and a head coach at CrossFit Barrington and he’s the kind of guy you go to when you’re ready to commit to shaping up.
CrossFit is a strength and conditioning program used by many professional athletes, police academies, tactical and military operations teams.  Brian is a Barrington High School graduate who returned to Barrington to start a family after college, grad school and serving as an active duty infantry officer with the U.S Army’s 10th Mountain Division. He was deployed to Iraq for 6 months in 2004 and also served in Afghanistan in 2006 & 2007 before retiring from active duty later that year.
“The military gives you a structured way of life.  You’re developing soldiers to survive, to work as a team, to focus on a specific mission, accomplish tasks and get things done.  From a CrossFit standpoint, I’m developing my clients to live a better life through fitness and healthy eating and thinking about their general fitness throughout life.”

Now back to CrossFit and the gym’s beginnings here in Barrington.  Brian Niven first started training people with CrossFit methods in a gym he built in his home garage.  The business grew and he and his friend, Chris Bluse, opened the area’s only CrossFit training facility at 28066 Commercial Avenue in Lake Barrington in September of 2011.
Brian says their brand of CrossFit is designed for people of all ages and fitness levels……
