CHOOSING A CROSSFIT GYM (aka BOX)

CrossFit®’s mission is “to fuel a revolution in fitness based on the pursuit of function.”

We love how our friends at CrossFit Headquarters in Santa Cruz describe this revolution: “We believe that where you train is less important than how you train, and whom you train with matters more than what gear you have. We know this can be done anywhere. We’ve proven that the back yard to the garage to the warehouse is as good an environment as any for forging elite fitness.”

But…

Take off your Coat and Stay Awhile

Once you have narrowed down the (official) affiliates you want to try, take the time to visit. Talk with the trainers, talk with the members. Spend time observing a morning class and an afternoon class.  Take a free trial class! By just being in the space you’ll learn a lot about class structure, the community, and trainers’ personalities.  We are very passionate about CrossFit and encourage you to visit our box as well as others.  Finding the box that is right for you is important to your success.  You want it to be a place you look forward to going.   A place that is convenient to where you live or where you work.  A place where working out alongside new friends easily becomes either the best part or a great part of your day.  The right fit leads to consistency in showing up and getting stronger and becoming a better you.

It’s the Community!

At most globo gyms it is hard to get to know the people next to you on the elliptical trainer or Stairmaster®.  In any case, they’re probably too busy watching TV,  reading a magazine, or tuned into their Ipod.  CrossFit, on the other hand, is one hundred percent all about the people you “throw down with” every day. As CrossFit increasingly becomes a bigger part of your life, so, too, will your fellow CrossFitters. You don’t have to like everyone, but don’t be surprised if it turns out you do.  The Community is a strong part of why CrossFit works.
