Best box's in Seattle area?

Im heading to the Seattle area next weekend and I was hoping to visit 2-3 different facilities.
I am looking for suggestions on what box's I should visit. I am looking for a place that:

Allows me to follow my own programming
T shirts for sale, I collect T shirts from all the different places I go (18 so far).
Will be a kick *** time, I like meeting new people and have a great time and a few laughs.

I am driving down from Abbotsford BC on the friday morning and then driving back monday afternoon.

Any suggestions on facilities I should visit?

Re: Best box's in Seattle area?

Skip Chase owns one in Mt. Baker, and I think they have more than one.

I have no idea where they are in the state.....If you're close to that one, it's where I'd go.

I would call ahead to let them know what you're looking for. Unless it's open gym, we would not allow a visitor to follow their own programming during our class time.

Yeah, this is going to be a problem. Would you allow some random dude who claims he does Crossfit just show up and do whatever in your gym? (most gyms don't have open gym hours)

Most gyms have no problem with you joining in their classes, and if they have space/time you can ask about showing up early/late to get some lifting in too, that'll probably go over better.

Why not join their class and experience different styles of coaching and training? You might learn something

As for CF gyms in Seattle, there's about a million. I'd recommend that you at least visit Level 4 (Crossfit Seattle) as they were the very first affiliate gym, opened almost 10 years ago! http://crossfitseattle.com/ (wfs)

Re: Best box's in Seattle area?

Thanks Jason for your reply, however it is not really productive as I have or plan on contacting each gym in order to clear my workout or program with them so I do not interfer with their class if they do not have open gym time.

My experience and certifications far outweighs and any reservations anyone might have. I was just asking if anyone has had any experience with any of the box's, as I want to have a great time.

I thank you for your suggestion on CF Seattle and I am waiting on their reply to my email. I already have a workout booked at MT Baker and hope to get one booked at CF Bellingham as well as 2-3 in the Seattle area.
I have contacted 15 box;s and most have been very receptive to my "personal workout" idea as I have provided them with my programming for the 4 days I am around in their area.

Thank you both for your replies and I hope to hear from others as well.

The shirt is from Threadless, looks like they currently only have size Medium in stock:

My other fave is "Bacon is a vegetable":

Blake, not sure if you are still looking but the box I found while working on Whidbey Island is great, http://www.crossfitadvantage.com/ (WFS), they have a huge space, but are north of Seattle. Not sure if they'd let you follow your own programming though.
