One of our favorite ways to workout on vacation is by dropping into a CrossFit box. We get to make new friends, explore a different part of a town, and get a workout in all at the same time. When we first arrived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, we were excited to learn about CrossFit Carioca, a box located in the heart of the bustling beach town, Ipanema.

André and Michelle, the owners of the gym, welcomed us into their box for the week that we spent in Brazil. With their vast knowledge of all CrossFit movements, their full collection of Eleiko bars, along with their fun-loving demeanors made for a great workout.

The best part about CrossFit is the people that you meet and the instant community you are welcomed into, whether at home or abroad. If you find yourself in Rio de Janeiro, make sure to stop into CrossFit Carioca for a GREAT workout!
