Inside Mount Vernon CrossFit, a 36' Infinity Rig loaded with barbells, pull-up bars, and gymnastics rings welcomes visitors to the 3,000-square-foot facility. Scattered around this domineering structure are other indicators of a steadfast commitment to physical fitness, such as plyo boxes, rowing machines, and dozens of kettlebells. These are the tools of the trade at the CrossFit gym, where exercisers of every description come together to perform the Workout of the Day, an ever-changing collection of exercises designed to build broad, functional fitness. Outside, another acre of land is available for exercises that can't be performed indoors, such as long-distance running or leaping to snatch birds out of mid-air.
