A blue gate to fitness heaven in Mitte

Although the news that we are moving arrived on short notice, we know that our new home is easily accessible by public transportation and we strongly believe that it will also satisfy our future fitness training desires.

Just a few reasons why our new location will be superior to our current:

  • First and foremost we will have heating! That means no more frost bites on pullup and olympic bars! Those of you who have survived the first winter with us know what I am talking about.
  • We are going to have our own rest room and finally a shower!
  • If thats not even enough we will have around 5 times as much of training space and close to 10 times as much overall space to develop further.
  • Of course we went the extra mile and got ourselves the famous Rogue Fitness pullups structure that you may remember from the CrossFit Games!

That is not all, there is more to come as we are going to evolve

But are you asking „Where is this CrossFit heaven located?“ Look for the amazing blue garage doors!

Wer rastet, der rostet. Hinter diesem Tor erreichen und entwickeln aktive Menschen Fitness, Wohlergehen und Gesudheit beim CrossFit Training in der Werk-Gemeinschaft.

A blue gate!

We just announced, that we are moving! Hoping that you have had some time to digest the great news, we hereby would like to feed your curiosity and give you more details about how to get to the new CrossFit Werk in Berlin. This new home in Mitte is protected by and accessible through this amazing blue gate.

It might let you think „Wow!“, because this is one of the gates that only the coolest and most original boxes have. Be patient for a little longer to see what great space of opportunities awaits behind. We’ll tell you soon.

There are three public transportation stations in close reach. The bus stop is just on the street and two train stations – one of those is also a metro station – are within 5 minutes walking distance (considering a typical fit person walking):

U-/S-Bahnhof Wedding (metro and train station)
with metro line U6 and
train lines S41/S42 (Circle Line)

S-Bahnhof Humboldthain (train station)
with train lines S1/S2/S25

Bus stop Nettelbeckplatz
with bus lines M27 and 247

Somewhere here in this neighborhood lies the new home to the people that care so much about fitness and community.

 

We are moving!

Being the first CrossFit Box in Berlin, we are proud that our great community is widely spread from all areas and scenes of the Hauptstadt. This lead into the greatest challenge, which is finding a location that would be accessible by public transportation and being well connected to paved road infrastructure. We took this issue very seriously and did not chose the new location lightheartedly. There is a variety of options to reach the new box with public transportation in quite acceptable travel time:

In 20 minutes from Berlin Alexanderplatz

In  15 minutes from Central Station/ Hauptbahnhof

In 19 minutes from Wittenbergplatz/ Kurfürstendamm

In 13 minutes from Messe Nord/ ICC

In 23 minutes from Warschauer Straße

In 20 minutes from Berlin Südkreuz

There are a ton of options. Compared to our current location, all of the above are at least within half the walking distance compared to what we are used to now: from Südkreuz to the box. Not to mention coming by bike or car. We will have parking spots available just outside the new box as well – and still private enough that you can neglect the typical urban struggle.

With all the change that is coming, let me be clear on a few things that we will never change:
CrossFit Werk will always be a place where great minds unite to move large loads, over long distances as fast as possible!
We will always be trying to increase our work capacity across broad time and modal domains through constantly varied, functional movements that we preform at high intensity to be the best self we can possibly be!

Not only is each and every one of you getting stronger, we as a community are striving for the better! This is a big step for us both as community as well as the CrossFit Werk itself and we sincerely hope that you will stay on board during this adventure, that is waiting for us behind an amazing gate!
