love your box?
what about your box makes you LOVE it besides your fellow crossfitters and coaches? is their something about your box that is above and beyond the norm?

Re: love your box?
The gym I trained at in Norcal wasn't a CFbox, more of one of those functional fitness gyms. That being said, you could basically do anything CF besides having a bunch of good bars and bumpers for the OlympicLifts besides sleds and what not for PowerLifting (like a Monolift)

Mainly I could do programming I believed in and anything else if need be, especially as they got some rowers again though I'd prefer to use my rings (they have oversized rings) and a manila rope. Also helps to have a pretty good knowledge base by the trainers.

While I love my friend's CF boxes, neither have platforms nor bumpers besides High-Temps and CF bars. One also has a gymnastics gym which is pretty cool though. Neither are knowledgeable enough in the OlympicLifting game though compared as to the gym I was going to.

Re: love your box?
thanks ;) im wondering what draws people (with the exception of the coaches) from one box to another... i understand this varies greatly from person to person i am just curious if there would be some sort of concensus as to a key factor.

A sense of community is what drives most people in, getting them to come back for more and telling their family, friends and neighbors about it.

Pretty much community is what brings people back. Well, most people.
