Do you run up and down the 95 corridor from PHL to DC that you could actually close your eyes and still arrive safely?
Well don’t. You’ll miss a great box in Delaware that makes it super easy to get in, get out and get on your way. Hellllloooo Crossfit Diamond State!
For the traveler, this place is excellent because:
- Drop is easy and free for existing Wodify atheletes (but hey, don’t get greedy!)
- They have showers
- They have a mini kitchen and microwave (don’t be a slob)
- The location is 5 minutes off of 95 (488 First State Blvd Wilmington DE 19804)
- They have a ton of accolades (best crossfit, bootcamp and personal traininer in DE)
- They post their workouts – hooooooray!
- PEOPLE WERE FRIENDLY.
Seems like a decent recipe, right?
When I dropped in, I had to laugh as it was my third workout that week and the two prior ALL CONTAINED THRUSTERS. The crossfit open gods have spoken, Jesus H. That day, they had 2, 7 min AMRAPs or OHS/burpee over bar and Thrusters/burpee over bar (3-6-9-12-15-barf-18) and coach Eli was cool with me subing heavy squat cleans for thrusters. Needless to say, I didn’t get very far up the ladder. We warmed up as a group, got in small groups for strength and then set up for the WOD. Of note, the warm up was specific for the movements that were part of the workout. Not every place is like this and you get the same warm up, every day, regardless of the movement.
Lastly, the energy was high. Love it or hate it, there were some other members in the gym working on strength, skill outside the class. I personally like the energy as long as it’s not totally derailing. I didn’t think it was.
Some random members that I hadn’t met before were cheering for me as I slogged my way over the bar between burpess, and that’s cool.
So get the F our of your car while on 95 and hit this place up!
