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.
