Get Jacked at Crossfit

People are busy, and their days offer precious few opportunities to hit the gym. Instead of unwinding with a few 12-ounce lifts, get your post-work decompression from a crossfit session. There are more crossfit gyms in town than you can shake a stick at (or a dumbbell, if it's light enough), so finding a place to quench your squat, medicine ball and pull-up thirsts is easy. Here are a few options in different parts of the city:

Mission Crossfit Crossfit classes are available every weekday at 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. and last one hour. Reservations can be made online. Drop-ins are available, but try to book as early as possible. 8842 Broadway, (210) 865-9348,

Crossfit Lackland Work out on the West Side at Crossfit Lackland. The gym offers one-hour classes starting at 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. every weekday and also at 6:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If you're just starting, two week-long beginner classes run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., with a new session starting every other Monday. 7121 U.S. 90, Suite 104, (210) 765-7210,

Crossfit Lobo Crossfit Lobo is located on the North Side and is easily accessible from the Medical Center, UTSA and other hubs. Hour-long classes are available every weekday at 4, 5 and 6 p.m. If you're not sure whether to commit, drop-ins cost $15 (or you can buy a shirt), or purchase a 10-visit punch card for $165. 12710 Mayhill Drive, (210) 328-0830,
