NORFOLK -- Crossfit Little Creek is taking its workouts to the beach in Ocean View.

While there are several Crossfit gyms in Norfolk, Little Creek is using its proximity to the beach to inspire people to exercise.

There is a big fitness community here anyway because of all the active duty military we have, as well as the retired community," Crossfit Little Creek owner Corey Coleman said.

Nicole Cope said these workouts have turned around her life. "I'm a middle aged, business executive who realized too much time at steakhouses, airplanes and desks was killing me. I found crossfit and I lost 30 pounds in the past 2 1/2 months.

I've found my inner power again."

Parents are encouraged to also bring their kids to the beach workouts. "There's been a big push lately with a lot of childhood obesity, and it's great parents are able to bring their kids out to set a good example," Coleman noted.

There are two more beach workouts coming up on September 13th and October 7th. It's $10 for the workout, unless you're a member at the gym.
