CrossFit Selvagem (“Savage”)

While on a Rio de Janeiro city walk from our Botafogo AirBnb to Leblon beach—about 4km (2.5 miles)—we happened to pass CrossFit Selvagem (“Savage”). It turns out that Emille had planned it that way, but I’m very glad that she did. Our eyes lit up, so we had to walk in and schedule a few drop-in classes, as any CrossFit fanatic would do—Emille points out.

Victoria, the co-owner, had just wrapped up a 12 o’clock class, and was available to chat. She speaks English, so we immediately felt at home. She met her husband, Richard, also co-owner of the gym, at Johns Hopkins University, where he was a defensive back on the football team.

Recognizing a prime opportunity, these medical and fitness enthusiasts moved to Brazil to open a CrossFit gym in 2015, just two years after CrossFit was established. We fell in love with their story and their struggle, as Brazil, which can be a bit corrupt, makes it difficult for business owners to make money, buy and build businesses.

Richard and Victoria are great people and we highly recommend their CrossFit gym (aka “box”). If you are ever in the Botafogo neighborhood of Rio, check out CrossFit Selvagem “Savage,” and ask for the “Emille.” If your conditioning is still a work-in-progress, ask for the “Dan.”

CrossFit Selvagem em Português 🇧🇷

Enquanto em uma cidade do Rio de Janeiro a pé de nosso Botafogo AirBnb para a praia do Leblon—cerca de 4 km (2,5 milhas)—passamos a passar CrossFit Selvagem (“Savage”). Acontece que Emille planejou dessa forma, mas estou muito feliz por ela ter feito isso. Nossos olhos se iluminaram, então tivemos que entrar e programar algumas aulas, como qualquer fanático de CrossFit faria—Emille ressalta.

Victoria, a coproprietária, acabara de terminar uma aula das 12 horas e estava disponível para conversar. Ela fala inglês, então imediatamente nos sentimos em casa. Ela conheceu seu marido, Richard, também co-proprietário do ginásio, na Universidade Johns Hopkins, onde ele era um defensivo de volta ao time de futebol.

Reconhecendo uma excelente oportunidade, estes entusiastas da medicina e fitness mudaram-se para o Brasil para abrir um ginásio CrossFit em 2015, apenas dois anos após a criação do CrossFit no Brasil. Nós nos apaixonamos por sua história e sua luta, já que o Brasil, que pode ser um pouco corrupto, dificulta para os empresários ganhar dinheiro, comprar e construir negócios.

Richard e Victoria são ótimas pessoas e recomendamos o seu ginásio CrossFit (também conhecido como “box”). Se você estiver no bairro de Botafogo, confira o CrossFit Selvagem “Savage” e peça o “Emille.” Se o seu condicionamento ainda é um trabalho em andamento, peça o “Dan.”

Hi, we’re Dan and Emille. We met at church in NYC in 2010 and in 2011 we were married in Central Park on the bow bridge. In the last 6 years of marriage we stopped paying NYC rent, and bought a place on the edge of Hoboken, NJ, with spectacular views of the NYC skyline, which has been really fulfilling for photography enthusiasts. We have been talking about having kids for the last 6 years, but the New York lifestyle would make it difficult as our families are in Florida and Brazil. So we sold our place and furniture, left some great jobs, and friends and decided to have travel the world before we have kids. We’re cultured, but not fancy. We've been to 21 countries, and would love to visit all of them. We try to experience things like the locals as much as possible.
