The story is classic: Gabe Subry and Vince Carter were training out of a traditional gym, and when their clientele grew and the space wasn’t able to accommodate CrossFit training, the pair opened CrossFit 209 Sport, the first box in Stockton, Calif. Now they’ve got all the toys they need.
The 4,200-square-foot facility has the requisite CrossFit equipment but also boasts dumbbells that go all the way up to 100 lb. Subry and Carter have a bench-press station for those days when Lynne shows up, and a pair of garage-built lifting platforms can be found nearby. In true CrossFit fashion, they’ve strategically removed ceiling tiles to hang rings.
Outside, the parking lot is full of tires and skid marks from prowler pushes, and the box has an obstacle for the burpee wall climbs seen in the 2010 CrossFit Games.
CrossFit 209 Sport is obviously doing something right: Subry recently finished sixth in the hotly contested Northern California Region.
