Box or Gym?

Do you refer to your local CF affiliate as a gym or a box?

With Brian on this. We are a gym, a training facility, not a box...

Re: Box or Gym?

I personally can't stand it. We're anything but a "box".

I'm sure it started as "all we need is a box to workout in." Or something along those lines. Box sounds cheesy.

Re: Box or Gym?

Didn't it start because of the Reebok container box? Yea, you can only use the word "box" to a fellow CF'er. Otherwise you end up having to give a long explanation....

"Box" was around well before Reebok came on board.
