Crossfit Gulch – Nashville, TN @crossfitgulch

The America’s Health Insurance Plan meeting brought me to Nashville last week.  And, let me tell you, I’m glad that it did.  I dropped in at Crossfit Gulch on the reccommendation of a buddy and his girl that are moving to the area and are joining the box.  image

I dropped in twice and ate BBQ here twice:


And ate this twice:

Best post work out ever.  There’s probably evidence against me on this one but I loved every minute.  This place was not even 100 yards from the front steps of CFG.  Not that I didn’t want a protein bar and a KillCliff…

Back to the gym:

Everyone I met was SUPER nice.  Rebecca, Troy, Chris, Trey – killing it! They really made me feel welcome.

  1. Email before you drop in.  Depending on the workout, there might be a cap so I don’t want you to show up and not be able to drop in if you’re on a tight schedule.  Rebecca got a hold of me quickly and was easy to correspond with over email.
  2. Fill out the Wodify waiver they send over.
  3. WOD
  4. Drop in info
    • You’ll find the drop in stuff @ bottom
  5. Info
    • Addy: 602 9th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37203
    • Phone: 615-293-4439
  6. There is a shower, hooray!  I was literally living out of my work suitcase that week and it was a life saver.

Here were the WODs we did:

Wednesday – 185lb push pressed?  Don’t mind if I do!  Cool 3 person WOD and a significant challenge.

Thursday – 12 min of burpees and DUs is a long 12 minutes.  I think I’ll take this one on the road with me in the future.  Always have your rope with you, right?

If you’re at Nashville City Center, this is an easy box to find.  Hell, if you’re in Nashvegas, it’s worth stopping in no matter where you are.

Stay hungry y’all –

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
