Anyone can do Crossfit workouts on their own, but I really love the community aspect of a group workout. If you are looking to try Crossfit, here are some local places to start.
Tysons Corner, VA
This is the box where I workout. I think the training and coaching is excellent there and I have found my fellow workout participants all to be nice, friendly, encouraging people. I like that while there are certainly high intensity “fire breather” type athletes at the box, they are equally welcoming to and supportive of people of every level of fitness.
Rubicon offers a free workout to anyone interested — simply contact the box to let them know when you want to come in.
Disclosure: My husband is one of the coaches at Rubicon, but I’d love it even if he wasn’t there.
I do not workout here, but know many people who love this box. It is actually two different locations in Clarendon and N. Arlington owned by the same people. PCF also offers free introductory class to beginners to let you check it out.
My hubby runs a free Saturday morning workout at 8:30am at the track and field adjacent to Yorktown High School (Greenbrier Park). The WOD is free and open to anyone, regardless of fitness level and previous Crossfit experience. It’s a great way to try out Crossfit to see if it appeals to you. If interested, send Mike an email.
