A couple of weeks ago, we signed a lease for a portion of basement space in the historic Kress Building in Downtown St. Petersburg. You may ask, “CrossFit in a basement? Really?” Believe it or not, there are quite a few awesome CrossFit boxes in basements throughout the country, especially in downtown areas.
We think this place is PERFECT for a CrossFit gym. Why?
There are plenty of stairs to run for metcon WODs.
The ceilings are high (believe it or not they are 15 feet high!)
Our location is convenient and right in downtown St. Petersburg
The floor plan is open (after demo, of course)
While the place is a perfect fit for us, it isn’t exactly “move-in ready.” We are hard at work getting it ready for WOD domination in the near future. Be sure to visit this site and “like us” on Facebook to stay updated with progress. Who’s excited?!? We are!!!
