Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

CrossFit Glen Burnie
Regardless of whether it belongs to a couch potato or an Olympic swimmer, the human body is always capable of an improvement in fitness. The trainers at CrossFit Glen Burnie seek to communicate this principle to those who think it's too hard or too late to get fit, and encourage those who already live by it to continue the quest. Their CrossFit programs build a broad base of strength, conditioning, and endurance, which can even help with performance in outside pursuits such as throwing old ladies over your shoulder and helping them across the street. A Workout of the Day might be assembled from Olympic weightlifting, gymnastics, and cardiovascular exercises, and can be scaled to fit all ages—even kids and senior citizens. Beginning CrossFitters may enroll in an on-ramp class to learn the basic techniques, while more experienced exercisers have their choice of basic, competitive, and weightlifting-oriented programs.
