About this pro

When you walk into Arenal Fitness you will see some traditional pieces of cardiovascular and strength training equipment but will quickly notice that what we offer is more geared to free weight and functional movements.  This is because we want to focus on exercises that will help you to function better in your everyday life.  Why go to a gym and spend countless hours performing arm curls and leg extensions, which will never help you to pick your child off of the floor or easily get out of a chair? Come to Arenal Fitness and learn movements that you can practically apply to your daily routine!!

If you are used to a more traditional style of training, we will be happy to take you through a complimentary demo workout to for you to experience a true functional training workout.

The idea was to bring their love of CrossFit to the masses and help people realize how much they are capable of doing; from the person who has never exercised before to the elite athlete.

In addition to being Level 1 CrossFit instructors, Donna and Lauren also hold the following certifications:

  • CrossFit Kettlebells
  • CrossFit Mobility

Arenal (R-N-Nal) Fitness, established in 2010 and voted Baltimore’s Best, is a 24/7 access, 5,000 square foot functional training facility that offers a variety of CrossFit group classes, personal training options, and General Memberships to all ages and demographics. The high energy training and programs that we teach in our facility inspired us to name ourselves after the active Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica.
