Does anyone belong to a CrossFit box in their city? Trying to figure out how to balance the cost of membership vs. traveling and not being able to when I’m at a client. Any workarounds?

Always ask about a punch card if you don’t think you’ll be able to get in to make up for the monthly cost. (Eg monthly fee $210, drop-in $25, you can’t make it 9 days - doesn’t make sense...) But as a member, oftentimes coaches will give you alternative wods while you travel (body weight or w/equipment you can find at the hotel gym).

This is what I do. Typically I’m traveling somewhere enough to make a punch card worth it (usually like 10 classes). If I’m there longer great, if not I usually let them know I won’t be back and ask for a shirt in exchange for not using the last classes, I’ve built up a nice collection of shirts!

You can also get a 10 pack pass....I have been doing CF under a year and will continue paying bc I think it’s pushing me to workout way more than otherwise sticking to a treadmill

Just talk to your box. Mine gives me a discount because they know I’m only there Friday and Saturday or if I’m home for a week. I have a client site box and a home box and both are super flexible for me. I love my two family’s. But I’m lucky I go to the same city every week for my client.

I have a 10 pass both in my home city box and at the city I'm at for work.. I go maybe twice when I'm travelling and once on Fri/weekend and it works out!

I belong to a box at home. Yes it’s expensive but I realize the monthly pass is still worth it if I can consistently go 3 days per week. And if I’m traveling I try to use the fitness subsidy when traveling to go to boxes by the client site

How do you justify the three days? What other types of options are you comparing it to?

Thanks to everyone for the feedback! I’ll likely reach out to the box I want to join once life starts again to see if we can work something out

All great ideas!

In the process of being promoted @B4 but I don’t like the people I work for and I’m on the project from hell.

I know it doesn’t hurt to talk to them but am I an ass for excepting the promo while continuing to look/possibly exiting in the near future?
