Swamp Rabbit Crossfit – Greenville, SC – @swamprabbitcrossfit

An excessively delayed flight and a buddy living in Greenville, SC gave me an extra day to explore and drop in to Swamp Rabbit Crossfit.  All in all, this place has it down and makes business travel drop ins reallllly easy.

Swamp Rabbit Crossfit makes things easy:

  • Online waiver and payment for Wodify users
  • Full locker room, new renovations
  • 2 showers
  • Oly and general WOD areas
  • I would imagine you could hit your independent or home box programming with all the space they have outside of the general WOD area, but be sure to ask first.
  • Easy parking

As for the workout, it was something like the cousin of the Filthy 50:

The only real caution I’d make is regarding their floors.  Everything is concrete.  Kudos to the staff as they made it a point to mention this as we were doing box jumps and landing on concrete 50+ times is less than awesome for your joints.  On the note of programming and flow, SRC ran things how Ilike to see classes handled.  I know some dudes and ladies roll their eyes at ice breakers, but whatever – when you travel and you’re by yourself a lot, it’s a nice welcome. We had a programmed warm up, went through ALL the movements and got started. The review of the movements was important – no one in the class was a newbie but the coaches paid special attention to everyone’s form regardless of their ability. Kudos part 2.

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
