Crossfit Escazu (San Jose, Costa Rica)

I recently had this thought/idea to start up crossfit retreats. After a little research I found that someone had already done it, so I emailed them and asked if they wanted some scouting advice.

Jury is still out on if I can help them or not.

Either which way- I’m going to continue my adventures and try to hit up as many crossfit gyms as possible (even if it’s just a check-list for myself).


Last night I made my way to Crossfit Escazu and trained with Thomas at Costa Rica’s first crossfit affiliate box. (I felt fancy!)

(Note: go to their website if you want good directions. The location on are incorrect). 

The workout was:

“Every minute on the minute for 20 minutes:

Alternate between 7 thrusters (95/65)

7 burpees/7 squats.”


The workout was intense. I blame the burpees (I loathe burpees). The class (about 10 people or so) that I worked out with was varied between people that compete regularly and newcomers. EVERYONE was super friendly and very dead after this WOD (to be expected).

Thanks team Escazu for welcoming this gringa to your mix for the day. 🙂
