We are all about visiting CrossFit gyms when we travel. Dropping in is a great way to connect with new people, figure out where the locals like to go, experience different coaching styles and, ultimately, get a good workout in.
All CrossFit gyms, however, are not created equal. When dropping in, we look for the same standards we promise our members at Rhapsody – prime coaching, pristine facilities and a signature member experience.
After visiting over 150 CrossFit affiliates across the country, here is our list of the best of the best.
