CrossFit and Travel Combined

How can you choose a CrossFit box to train at if you don’t know what you should be looking for?  And how can you judge the quality of your CrossFit box if you’ve never experienced another one?

CrossFit.  Travel.  Two passions combined.

From the snow covered mountains of New Zealand´s South Island, to Dubai´s dusty desert and Spain´s stunning beaches I´ve wandered.  And I´ve boxed jumped.  I´ve visited as many CrossFit boxes as time, logistics and priorities have allowed.  Following the CrossFit.com affilitate finder map, I’ve kept off the tourist trail as much as possible, been to some amazing places, met inspiring people, kept relatively (?!) fit and had room for that self-exploration that so many travellers seem to crave.

And now you reap the benefits.  Check out the straight-talking, honest reviews about the boxes I’ve visited for more of an idea of what you can expect from your box.  These reviews are entirely from my point of view and experience. It has been interesting to see how every box is run slightly differently. What I look for and like will be different to you, so the summaries are as factual as possible.

There are a few other Bits ‘n’ pieces also worth a read, like why weightlifting is so important for girls, why we should stop obsessing so much about being skinny and a piece about an endurance swimmer who turned to CrossFit for increased gains.

The Travel section in Box Jumping offers an alternative insight to a range of travel destinations. This is a CrossFit-free section of the website, with information on local favourties, food and festivals, and how to get the most out of random destinations.

About Josinta

I am passionate about travel, CrossFit and writing and have combined all three in my blog - boxjumping. A Level 1 certified CrossFit trainer, I am visiting as many CrossFit boxes as I can during my travels. This has opened many doors - I´ve been to random parts of cities, met awesome people and seen the myriad of ways a CrossFit box can be run. I also CouchSurf - another awesome way to meet locals and end up in areas you never expected. I like hidden corners, local flavours, sitting in a cosy café with my journal, lying on a hot beach with a book. I like flexibility. I like freedom. I like learning about myself, other people, about the world. Life is a journey, they say, but it is also short and full of the unexpected. I am making the most of mine.
