The funny part is it's not anyplace cool, just a random Metro station across the street from a mall. I guess super long escalators aren't exactly the kind of record architects lose sleep trying to beat.  :D

Walking up 500 straight feet of stairs is hard even aided, haha. Even when I was in shape I'd be puffing a bit by the time I got to the top. There's an elevator there but it's unbefuckinglievably slow and basically only people in wheelchairs take it. The next stop down, though, is so deep that it only has an elevator. No escalator.

I live in DC now but grew up in Silver Spring (hence the "SS). I know about SSPT but haven't been up there. You like it? My gym is Balance, in Kalorama Heights.

Yeah man SSPT is set up sort of like Defranco's but caters more toward powerlifters...they have a prowler, sled, wheelbarrow, etc. and a parking lot outside where ppl can do GPP work. I've trained at that location of Balance a couple times; it's pretty sick that you guys have a basketball court.

Yeah it sounds like a great place. I've corresponded a little bit with Manny and honestly think I'd prefer it there to Balance just from a gym perspective. Too much Crossfit at Balance. I like a lot of the people there, though, and I can walk there from my house. Rockville is far.

Manny is hella strong. He's in there almost daily doing clean/jerks and snatches. Haha Crossfit is becoming like a cult.
