Summer is getting close and that means vacation and travel for many of you! While we definitely want you to enjoy some R&R on the vacay, it’s also a great idea to get in some W-O-D while you’re away. Makes for a happier indulgence in those travel meals, too.
One of the great benefits of CrossFit is that it boasts an enormous community that can be found in almost any corner of the earth. I recently dropped in to CrossFit Austin and was welcomed with open arms, wall balls and plank holds. Nothing like a good sweat fest to get you oriented to the local climate! Plus, you’ll meet the locals and get some great recommendations on must-sees, must-eats and must-dos while you’re in town! Check the CrossFit GPS locator for a gym near you.
Also take a look at the gym’s website and locate their Contact section because it’s always a good idea to email the gym ahead of time and let them know you’d like to “drop-in” to a class. They will respond with information regarding the process, including class times, waiver procedures and spot reservations. Many do charge a drop-in fee, but I just chalk it up to part of the vacation experience! Some will also let you purchase a t-shirt for that drop-in fee so make sure you ask. Most also have no problem modifying or scaling workouts, but if you’re worried, just contact one of your Fly coaches and we’ll be happy to check the WOD on their website and offer up some advice! And most importantly, don’t forget to take a pic so we all know you were there!

Memorial Day Beach WOD
On Memorial Day we will have ONE WORKOUT at 9:00am. All Crews are welcome to attend this workout which will be held at Corona Del Mar State Beach. There is parking available right on the beach for a fee, or you may park in the neighborhood above the beach at no charge. Meet on the sand in front of the bathrooms. We will start promptly at 9am as the beach will start to get crowded early that day for the holiday.
