When I first started CrossFit around three years ago, one of the most annoying things, was not being able to find an affiliate gym close to my house.
Back in 2008, it’s fair to say the sport was nowhere near as popular it is at now. And trying to find a box on google was a lot tougher than one would think.
Now, however, there is a website we can all go to to find the nearest gym to us. No matter where we are in the world!
CrossFit HQ have up on their site, which can be accessed clicking here.
Through Google Maps, the site allows us to see the location every single registered CrossFit Gym across the world.
There’s some pretty interesting stats to be found too. Like, did you know there are more than 400 CrossFit Gyms just in California?? Or that there are more boxes in Australia than there are in Asia, South America and Africa combined??
In short, the site is great for anyone who may have moved to a new area and is trying to find a good local place to workout, those keen on taking up the sport and even someone thinking about starting a new affiliate gym in a specific region.
Alternatively, if you’d rather just train in the comfort of your own home gym, there are plenty of great bargains you can snap up online to set up your own, and a heap of online guides on how to choose a power rack for your home gym.
