After the warm greeting by Juliana and Bruno, owners of CrossFit W87
in Rio de Janeiro, the butt-kicking began! Juliana led the class and was excellent at conveying form and technique, and getting us warmed up for an epic partner WOD (“Workout Of the Day”). The prescription was displayed in English on a wall-mounted tv, adding a high-tech touch.
Juliana has been running the two-floor gym for over two years with her husband, Bruno—who can deadlift a ton, by the way. They offer group classes, as well as fundamentals and conditioning at great prices.
The staff and members were very friendly and wanted to know all about our training and travels after they were able to return me to an upright position. Check them out if you’re in the neighborhood.
