Albany Crossfit (@albanycrossfit) from @WanderingFitness – Albany, NY

@WandingFitness Here,

I recently headed to upstate New York for a little rest and relaxation and visited one of the earliest Crossfit Boxes in New York, Crossfit Albany. They have a long history opening their doors in 2007, before rogue fitness and even before the crossfit games as we know them today!

Gym

Located within The Racket Club, a racquetball club located in Albany New York. The place is Huge and has been growing since its inception. They have three separate spaces and run 10 classes a day every day of the week.

The main room has a ton of space with a great rig along one side and a variety of speal bars(my favorite). I only poked my head in the other rooms but one has a nice setup of oly platforms and squatting rigs.

Class:

I attended one of the AM classes(I don’t remember which), there were about 6 students.  The coach was young but very energetic, he walked us through a skill set and the workout of the day. Warm up was great, worked through each movement and he gave out a number of pointers. We started by finding our one rep max hanging snatch and then progressed to the W.O.D. It was a brutal combination of burpees, squat snatch and bar muscle ups… I was wiped!

Overall:

One of my favorite affiliates, Absolutely beautiful facility and a great history!!!! There are a number of outfits in Albany and this will be my goto next time I visit.
