How far do you drive to the box?

I just moved. The box I started in two years ago was like 10 minutes from the house. Now I'm like 25 minutes from the closest box. How far do you drive to get to your box?

20 minutes. Its on my way to work though, and I workout before work. If I had to make a dedicated drive just to go work out, I think anything more than 10 minutes would get me thinking about building a garage gym.

Re: How far do you drive to the box?

I don't train at a box but I drive 45 minutes 1 way to my jiujitsu gym. And I go 4-5 days a week. About once a month I drive 3 hours one way to our main gym. It's a sacrifice but nothing good is ever easy,

Re: How far do you drive to the box?

Roughly 10 minutes to my box. I was going to a nearby box previously, and the drive was ~25 minutes. It doesnt seem like much just to say, but that trip there and back after the WOD takes time out of your day and just plain gets old after awhile.

Edit: i wanted to point out that i didnt change boxes because of the drive, i changed shifts at work and the prev. box didnt fit my hours anymore. But now that im so close, i realize how much i dont miss the drive.

Re: How far do you drive to the box?

I'm a garage warrior now. I used to go to a box that was 2 minutes from work and 15 minutes from the house. I'd go workout after work and come home. Easy peasy.

My wife does some of her workouts at home, and some at a box that is 8 minutes away. She actually passes two other boxes between here and there because she likes the community there better.

I have a garage gym, but my box is one mile away. I use both.
