About FitWorks CrossFit Burbank
FitWorks is not a gym or an association of “personal trainers”. Our CrossFit Burbank facility is equipped with the essentials for training optimal fitness, but the CrossFit Burbank benefits come from the supervised daily workouts we prescribe.
What differentiates us
The load and rigor of the CrossFit Burbank workouts are adjusted to the individual, so that everyone, regardless of fitness, age, weight or condition, can work at his or her optimal effort level. Stay-at-home moms, MMA fighters, desk workers and police officers all do the same workout, with the same relative intensity, scaled to the individual.
How we were trained
Ernie has well over a quarter century of experience in grappling and martial arts. He practiced Kung Fu for a decade, and his interest in grappling led him to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. His first BJJ instructor was Rickson Gracie, who promoted him to Blue Belt after one month of training. Ernie continued his training with the world-famous Machado brothers, with Roger Machado as his primary instructor. In 2007 Ernie was promoted by Roger to Black Belt, the first from the RCJ Machado Academy in Pasadena. Ernie earned a Doctorate in Pharmacy from USC in 1999, demonstrating a deep mastery of the metabolic functioning of the cell -- the fundamental unit of biological activity. Fitness starts at the cellular level. His abiding interest in optimal health and fitness is matched by his dedication to teaching CF and BJJ techniques that positively affect the lifestyles of his students.
Why we love what we do
We integrate effective, efficient techniques into a broad-spectrum program designed to promote the kind of fitness excellence that has application to an exuberance of life in general, and to such demanding specific applications as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
