Drop-in: How to choose a great CrossFit gym for your travels

CrossFit is more than just a workout for many—it’s a lifestyle, a community, and a passion. But what do you do when a vacation or business trip is on the horizon and your favorite CrossFit gym is no longer nearby? Don’t panic! With a little research and the right tips, you can find the perfect gym for your drop-in or personal training even on the go.

1. Check the CrossFit affiliate map

You can easily find all CrossFit gyms in this map! There is plenty to choose from.

2. Google reviews: A first impression

The first step in finding the right CrossFit gym at your holiday destination is often reaching for your smartphone. Google reviews provide a quick and straightforward overview of different gyms in the area. Pay attention to the number and trend of the reviews, as well as the focus and special features mentioned in the comments. This will give you a first impression of the offerings and atmosphere of each box.

3. Website: More info for your decision

Most CrossFit gyms have their own website with or without a blog. Here you can find detailed information about the philosophy, offers, the equipment of the gym, and opening hours. If there is a blog, you can quickly find out what the focus is. Pay special attention to the philosophy and the community of the box to ensure that it matches your expectations and preferences.

4. Social media channels: Current insights

Many CrossFit gyms are also active on social media. Social networks like Facebook and Instagram offer a great way to get current insights into the training activities, get to know the atmosphere of the gym, and connect with the trainers and members. Don’t hesitate to ask questions or inquire directly about a drop-in, a weekly pass, or personal training.

5. Contact options and direct booking: Straightforward and quick to your goal 

Most CrossFit gyms offer various contact options. You can contact them via email, phone, or a contact form on the website. In many cases, it’s even possible to book a drop-in or a weekly pass directly online. This saves you time and effort and ensures that your spot in the next session is secured.

Additional tips:

  • Plan ahead: Inform yourself about CrossFit gyms in your area before your trip. This way, you can contact them right after your arrival and arrange a drop-in.
  • Be open to new experiences: Every CrossFit gym has their unique way of operating and their own culture. Embrase this.
  • Communicate with trainers and members: Don’t hesitate to ask questions and interact with other CrossFitters. This helps you quickly meet new people and may even give you something to do in the evening.
  • Have Fun! CrossFit is primarily a workout that should be fun. Enjoy the new environment, the challenge, and the community in the CrossFit gym.

With these tips, you’re well-equipped for your next CrossFit adventure on the road!
