Crossfit Generation drop in – Horsham, PA (@cfgeneration)

My employer as an office outside in Horsham, PA and Crossfit Generation is 5min down the road.  Perfect fit!  As it turns out, the coaches at the other box near where I grew up (see Crossfit Newtown, Matt and Mike) are friendly with the coaches at Crossfit Generation and referred me there. Needless to say, I had to check it out.

And, success. Barry, the owner, was incredibly kind and inviting. He was really accommodating and not pushy about drop in fees and memberships.

Oh, and the facility is sick.  Here’s the video:

There are two dedicated areas. One with turf, sleds, ropes, tires, OLY equipment; the other, w a Rouge rig, power lifting inserts, rings for MUs, jump ropes etc. They also had an area for child supervision while parents are working out. Kids are getting a little cardio in also. 

They’re located here:

If you train in a city, it’s a welcomed change to have smooth running surfaces and to, gasp, smell grass when running.  During my exhausted 400m runs with my eyes half open, it was nice to not thing about catching a curb and rolling my ankle.

Other items to keep in mind:

WOD – scroll down
Drop in fee: $15, 10 class card: $135
No showers, two bathrooms
Limited post workout nutrition that I could find, could be more and I didn’t see it.
Schedule

There’s a Wawa gas station and convenience store 5 min down the road, which was great for some post workout nutrition before I got on the road.

I’ve been there for two workouts so far and I’ve been challenged both times. I guess that’s Crossfit, right? Aside from that, they take a group approach to stretching, strength, WOD, buy out and cool down. A lot for an hour, but they stay on task.

You gotta give Barry and the crew a go!

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
