Overview

While in the nation’s oldest city, I dropped into DRiV Fitness, otherwise known as CrossFit DF.  Located in an old newspaper building, the footprint is huge, with over 7,000 sq ft of space outfitted with all Rogue Fitness essentials. The 140 members have several programs to choose from, Mom’s in Training, F.I.T. (Functionality in Training), Yoga provided by the Yoga Box, DRiV Jr., and CrossFit.

The full retail shop includes a variety of apparel as well as the following nutritional items; FitAid,  KillCliff, Perfect Bar, Chomps Sticks and Kookaburra Coffee. Additionally they host several events throughout the year  including “Inner DRiV” which is in house competition for our members.  It consists of three events in one day that are challenging, but doable for every member.  It takes place around the first of the year and is also used to celebrate their anniversary.  They also host an annual Cancer Smash Fundraiser which is a fun, family friendly fitness event for all skill levels and ages.  All money raised goes to the Cancer Patient Emergency Fund through the Flagler Healthcare Foundation, Inc.  which provides patients with financial needs, such as utility bills, medications, equipment and more. (Flagler Hospital is the local hospital in St. Augustine) Also an AED equipped facility.

How to drop in.

After a quick search through CrossFit’s Affiliate map, I found CrossFit DRiV and they have a link directly on the main page of how to drop-in which includes all essential information, including the waiver.  Upon arrival to my assigned class I was met by the owner, Todd Occhiuto, and was given a tour of the facility as well as introduced to the class. Overall an excellent experience and a great place to drop-in while you are in the nation’s oldest city!
