Crossfit Cove – Columbia, MD

My local box hosted a level one Crossfit seminar this weekend and, without a home, the gang took the show to the road.  Thankfully, Crossfit Cove is a home away from home, an oasis one might say, in Columbia, MD.  You know what they also have a lot of in Columbia?  Office buildings and families.  So if you’re in the area for work or you call Columbia home, this is the box for you.

First:  What a great space!  Big, open and brand-spanking new equipment.  Their coaches and programming are stellar and they have a “kiddie cove” for managing the youngins’ while you get your WOD on.  I mean, how cute is this husband and wife pair?


Give Brian and Marina a go!

Address:  7175 Oakland Mills Road Suite M, Columbia, MD 21046
Phone: (443) 583-4351

A group dropped in to the Saturday 10a class and, after a rousing warm up from dodgeball hit this partner WOD:

60 KBs
40 Pull ups
60 Sit Ups
40 Cleans
60 Box Jumps

2 rounds for time

Just what a guy needs after finishing 15.4 and undoing any good work with food and drinks at the bar.  These ladies handled it better me, that much I’m sure.


All in all, a great experience.  If you’re on the fence about Crossfit, I think this group will put you on the right side for  you.

We are busy. We are overbooked. We are traveling. We are unmotivated. We are tired. We are agitated. We are unproductive. We are overweight. We are unhappy. We are why. I'm a pharmacist, I travel regionally for work and have been all of these things. What elevates me from these emotional ditches? Good health. My nearly 100 year-old Italian grandmother "Nana" said a long time ago: "If you don't have your health, you don't have nothing." Considering she still rakes leaves and gives me hell for, well, just about everything, I think she's pretty damn sharp and fit. On the other end of the spectrum: My dad died at 65 from a heart attack. He was a diabetic, a previous smoker, a recovered drug addict, a food addict, hypertensive, arthritic, immobile nearing amputation and, simply, wasn't living. For all intensive purposes, I'm fit and healthy. Armed with degrees in biology and pharmacy (read: loans) and these two family stories, you'd think staying on track is easy. Newsflash: it's not. Traveling / Working / Fathering / Mothering / fill-in-the-blanking are obstacles we all have to overcome. So, how do we do it? Suitcase Fitness was born from the hope that by sharing my small health and fitness victories while traveling, others may be inspired to find new ways to stay engaged with their health. My vision is that others will use this venue to share their "baggage" and small steps taken to overcome health challenges. I get by with a little help from my friends. - The Beetles The things that last, never happen overnight. - Slaves
