Talayna Fortunato, 30, stretches after doing the workout of the day with others at Real Fitness, a CrossFit gym on Immokalee Road in Naples last week. Fortunato placed fourth out of 60 women at the CrossFit Open competition recently in Jacksonville, Fla. Fortunato has had to wear bandages on her hands after she tore the skin on her palms while doing 100 pull-ups during the competition. Fortunato says the number of things she accomplishes in 15 minutes at Real Fitness would take well over an hour in a regular gym. The workout of the day encompasses consistently varied functional movements performed at high intensity and can include running, rowing, climbing ropes, tossing medicine balls, jumping up on boxes, flipping tires along with carrying odd objects.
