Re: How far do you drive to the box?

Approx 25mins. Quite a bit out of the way but it is right by my work so I train before I got in on shift and then 24 hrs later I train again when i'm coming off shift. I also have a garage gym that I train at to limit the amount of times I'm driving that distance when i'm not already in the area.

Also like to hit up the globe gym (5mins away from home) to crush a WOD just for sheer shot factor on the bicep curlers and calve raisers. Love the looks There are a few of us who actually go in there and do a work out rather then socializing.

All in all totally worth the drive to the box as there are extremely top athletes training there compared to the 10-15 boxes I pass on the way there.

Re: How far do you drive to the box?

When I lived in Chicago my gym was exactly 1 mile away. I ran (usually walked back) half the time and drove the other. Now that I live in Winston-Salem, my gym is about 28 minutes away. There is a gym about 20 (that I do not like) and another one about 15 mins but it is the opposite way of everything else in town (grocery store, etc.).

Re: How far do you drive to the box?

I have been at home almost exclusively for two full years now. I have only ever trained at a reguLar Crossfit gym for 4 months in the almost six years I have been at this. The rest has been at home. Works way better for my schedule.

Re: How far do you drive to the box?

7 miles to the Globo I workout at which is right next to work.

We workout at 06.00 4 days a week so there is no traffic.. takes maybe 15min at the most if we hit all the traffic lights.

Even though it is a Globo we have a full CF/weightlifting section fitted by Eleiko (used for holding courses by Eleiko) that I think most boxes would be jealous of
Better than today, stronger than tomorrow.

Re: How far do you drive to the box?

45 minutes. I go once a week. I take care of other business when I am there so it is not just to do CF.
