Brandon, sorry, we decided to return to the US. I've done some CF workouts at the Pyramids (Wafi City), but you'll probably have better luck at one of the older bodybuilder's gyms --- if you can find one with a pull-up bar. (I actually don't know the gyms well so maybe the prospects are fine; InterCon has a nice gym.) I didn't actually live in Dubai but in Al Ain, just did business in Dubai and was planning to relocate there until recently.

Good luck! I'd love to see someone get a video of a CF workout on the helipad of Burj al Arab. That would be spectacular.

Hi Brandon,

I've lived in Dubai for a while now, though I am pretty new to crossfit.

If you'd like to get together to train or to share ideas/resources then PM me and I'll send you my details.

Dubai...Loved it!

I played in the 7s Rugby there in '05 for the RAK Goats!

Dont know of anyone CrossFitting there, but if you hook up with the Hurricanes Rugby Club they should be able to give you info of a good gym.

Hi everyone! Guess what? CrossFit Dubai is coming....

Right now I am flying solo in Big Apple and Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

Looking into opening a "box" next year (Physical Advantage is the company I work for, we are in the process of getting it together) but for now you can message me if you're up for a WOD

WARNING: THERE IS ALSO A FAKE CROSSFIT. I have read about people doing "cross fit" by marina, but had a look and it ain't cross fit. Its just fit.

Hi everyone!!

There are now three of us who regularly train together, plus we are in touch with 2 more people who train crossfit and I found a guy in a Gym in downtown
who is also training, so thats at least 6 of us, plus all of you.

We should look for a few places we can get together and train so that once there is a box set up we already have a community.

I see there was a big push on the communications in September, let try and get everyone together by the end of the month?

Candice.
