So you’ve started at Slate and then the holiday’s happen or work calls you away on a business trip. Or perhaps you are on vacation and want to continue all the hard work you’ve put in at the box.

You are faced with one of three options:

  1. Joining Slate and learning about CrossFit opens the door to over 12,000 other CrossFit affiliates worlwide. Each box is run and coached a little differently, but a supportive community and a solid workout lies at the heart of each box. Sure it might be intimidating at first glance, but once you’ve started warming up and moving, it’ll feel a little like home. Go to and search to find the nearest box to your stay. (Check in with each box, some have special discounts or procedures for visitors! If you are visiting Seattle and would like to drop-in at Slate, click here)
  2. Take a rest week! Sometimes our bodies need some time off and a quick vacation can actually do the body good.
  3. If the hotel/area you will be at has a small gym or workout space, the coaches at Slate have compiled some great workouts that can be done with bodyweight movements and some common workout equipment found in most hotel gyms.
