Creative CrossFitters create new workouts every day. Todd Occhiuto continues the search for signature workouts from around the world.

“I could totally do a pull-up on that branch.”

Greg Glassman changed the way CrossFitters view the world. Tree branches became pull-up bars, picnic tables turned into plyo boxes and swing sets seemed like great places to hang a set of rings. And that rock over there? You should probably overhead squat it.

Indeed, all the world is a CrossFit gym with the right pair of eyes and a little creativity.

This article, set in St. Augustine, Fla., is the second in a series where we’ll publish some of the best workouts from locales around the world, giving residents and travelers a chance to test their fitness outside the box.

If you have a set of landmarks, natural features or outdoor “equipment” suited for a great WOD, please view the submission guidelines on the last page of this article—then send us your workout!

Took me and friends quite a bit longer than 12 - 15 minutes time noted in the article (though I am not an "above average" crossfitter), but was fun! I definitely recommend completing it in the daylight. Darkness made the wall climb a bit more challenging! :)
