Carolina Crossfit, Columbia, SC & Charlotte, NC

Another trip to the Carolinas brought me to Charlotte and Columbia.  While in Charlotte, I stayed at the Sheraton Four Points Airport hotel.  Generally, these gyms are smaller than full service Sheraton hotels.

This is a pretty cost effective option and there’s a CVS across street. Also, Crossfit South Charlotte in less than a mile away. The north / south light rail also has a station down the street. All things considered, this place works for travel.  These gyms don’t look like much, but I think it offers an opportunity: get in a treadmill workout you wouldn’t normally do. Here was my approach from @crossfit_federalhill:

500m run
10 burpees
400m run
20 burpees
300m run
30 burpees
200m run
40 burpees
100m run

I then headed to Columbia for a meeting and, once my work was done, dropped in at Carolina Crossfit. I was met by Kunze and Reily, great dudes! Thanks again for being cool with me getting in my local box’s workout.

I’ve dropped in here 3 or 4 times. They offer a traditional crossfit class as well as a “balance” class that offers some traditional crossfit movements with some additional emphasis on endurance and mobility. Depending what you’re in the mood for, either class provides a good workout.  Another thing I like about this box is that they generally have open gym between 1 and 4 most days. This works great for me as I like to get my home workouts in when I’m on the road.  And while that first picture doesn’t do this place any justics… this place is massive:

You can only really see half the gym in the above photo. They recently added a new structure w pull up bars, wall ball targets, gymnastics rings and areas for HSPUs.
