Take a tour of CrossFit R.A.W. at R.A.W. Training with co-founder Amy Butteri. The box is located in Wildwood, Penn., and started in an indoor soccer field adjoining their gym space. In addition to the field, the training facility now includes multiple rooms and 42 acres of land outside. In each room there is a pull-up structure—one is from Rogue, and the other was fabricated by one of the coaches.

Butteri shows off the equipment, including a reverse hyper and a harness attachment to learn movements on the rings. CrossFit R.A.W. also has more specialized equipment like chains, bench blocks, atlas stones, a Woodway Speedboard treadmill and even two suspended baseballs for alternative-grip pull-ups.

Inside an adjoining room called “The Chamber,” another open space of 5,000 square feet is available to athletes. In this room, wall-ball targets adorn the walls, and med-balls and slam balls lie in wait. Platforms with attachments for band deadlifts also line the floor.

“The variety and the stimulus never ends here at R.A.W. Training,” Butteri says.

Jeeesh! Just "The Chamber" is a gym in itself! Amazing is right, and really doesn't begin to describe that place. All those KB's lining the wall must have required some serious cash just in themselves! The soccer field...it really is CrossFit Cribs! lol Awesome job RAW!

Love all the comments about the box where I work out! It really is a great facility with a very large number of loyal members. Not until I started watching some of the highlight videos of the sectional WODs this year at other crossfit facilities did I realize how enormous RAW really is in comparison. We are so lucky to have everything we need right at our finger tips and the greatest trainers as well! Go Team RAW!

Not only is the facility first class, the trainers are knowledgable, dedicated, charismatic and fun! Crossfit RAW has become a way of life for so many people, and not only for workouts--it is truly like family there.

In order to truly be Crossfit's version of MTV Cribs, we need to be shown "where the magic happens". :)

That is the most amazing gym I have ever seen! The only thing like it in the UK, is Loughborough University. You guys in the US are sooooo lucky. We're so cramped in the UK, that would cost millions, just for the land.
