Finding a Gym While Traveling

News — By on August 30, 2011 1:13 pm

Most CrossFit affiliates welcome drop-ins, so if you are planning a trip, check out WOD World, a great site that lets you easily zero in on a gym near your destination.  I asked the creator of the site, Vincent Leonetti, to describe it in a bit more detail:

The inspiration for WOD World came while I was traveling for my job last year.  Even though the CrossFit main site neatly lists all locations by city and state, there is a lot of extra work in trying to figure out which is the most convenient gym to visit.  The interactive map found at WOD World allows CrossFitters across the country (and soon the world) to search for a CrossFit location by city, state, zip or specific address.

Out of a total of 2700 CrossFit affiliates, I have mapped 1600 US locations and am actively updating the database. I encourage CrossFitters to provide me with feedback, changes, corrections, confirmations, and additions by visiting the Contact Page.

    Can people email you with the address of their box, maybe with a google link?
    Are you thinking about getting a submission form?

      Hi Morten,

      I am not sure if Vincent is checking the comments, but I know that if you email him with your address info (via the contact form on his site), he will update his database. The submission form sounds like a good idea, so I would mention it to him in the note.

    What a great idea! I usually refer to the CrossFit Affiliate page but much prefer WOD World search option and layout. Thanks for the link.

      Thanks Jessica,

      We are planning to add a similar mapping function in the next few days.
