CrossFit Is Portable

And don’t think that just because you’re on the road travelling you can’t fit in your WOD (that’s the workout-of-the-day for all of you yet-to-be-CrossFitters).
“There’s a sense of being a member of ‘the box,’ which is what we call CrossFit gyms,” Pete says. “And probably every major city now has a CrossFit gym. Often when I’m in other cities I’ll only get charged a nominal drop-in fee—or no fee at all.”
Or just pack a skipping rope for the trip, then do handstand push-ups and single leg squats in your hotel room, and run around town jumping on ledges and taking advantage of the natural opportunities in the environment you’re in. “Take the Grouse Grind in Vancouver, for example,” Pete says. “That’s a workout that hits all energy systems. CrossFit is a workout based in everyday life movements, so you should always be able to find those around you.”
