A medical conference brought me to the great Salt Lake for my first time. Somewhere in my consciousness, I was preparing for a crossfit workout at 4-5K feet above sea level. Enter: Brickwall Crossfit, a centrally located box with great hours, an open and airy facility and welcoming staff.
While I had never spent any time in SLC other than passing through on the way to Park City, I was pleasantly surprised with my experience. I had some dominant sushi @ Takashi and a solid Middle Eastern meat plate at Atlantic Market and Cafe.
I sent an inquiry through their contact form on the website and received a response back from Greg the same day. No muss no fuss, just “Come on in!”.
We did a 25min burner AMRAP which was just what I needed at that altitude:
- 800m Run
- 15 GHDs
- 15 burpees
- 1000m Row
- 20 leg ups
- 20 pistols
I arrived ~30min early and met Coach Ethan. He was really accomodating and was cool with me doing my own programming, granted – I wanted to work out with the class.

The only challenge I had was that I couldn’t find drop in information and the WOD wasn’t posted that I could tell. Certainly could have been user error on my part too. At the end of the day, they were responsive to email and I simply wanted to workout – they could have listed double FRAN and I would have still gone in.
Good group and great spot in SLC, check them out!
