Brandy & Tina Pierce

CrossFit has come to Grant. Brandy Hall and Tina Pierce are shown working out with kettleballs.

Residents of Grant and surrounding communities now have a new location for getting fit and making positive lifestyle changes. Body by B owner Brandy Hall has opened a new facility on Simpson Point Road just outside of the Grant town limits.

Brandy is a CrossFit Level 1 certified coach who has been practicing CrossFit for several years.

“It’s been a dream of mine to open a gym and share my passion for fitness with the residents of Grant,” Brandy said.

Brandy developed her unique program from years of fitness and coaching experience and combines cardio training with load bearing exercises for strength and flexibility. “This is not CrossFit as we are not yet affiliated with the CrossFit brand. But it is functional fitness and challenges participants with every session.” said Brandy.

The program offers a different workout every day, which prevents participants from plateauing and becoming bored. Workouts last about an hour and are designed to be physically challenging but tailorable to just about any age participant and fitness level. “Our oldest participant is 63 and never misses a workout. Our youngest is a 14 year old high school athlete from Owen’s Crossroads. This is truly a tailorable program to meet fitness goals of just about everyone," Brandy said.

Clients represent all walks of life and include high school athletes, school teachers, a former Marine, retirees, and homemakers.

Brandy plans to grow her facility into a fully affiliated CrossFit gym within the next few years. She often invites guest coaches Josh Powell and Tyler Campbell, both certified CrossFit coaches, to lead workouts. This also keeps workouts fresh and varied.

Body by B sessions are held Monday through Thursday at 5 and 6 a.m. and 4:30, 5:30 and 6:30 p.m., on Fridays at 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 9 a.m. Anyone interested in joining the fun and being coached by Brandy may contact her on her FaceBook page at brandybob hall. Brandy is offering a reduced rate for the first month for anyone that mentions this article when contacting her.
