Crossfit Is Chasing Me

You know as soon as I PCS'ed to Fort Jackson, Columbia SC from Fort Bragg, a crossfit affiliate opend up in Fayetteville, NC. So I spent two years and some change at Fort Jackson, and no sooner do I PCS to Fort Hood, and guess what an affiliate opens up right there in Columbia, SC. Now Im at Hood and have only talked to one person by way of the forum that crossfits here, and the nearest affiliates are Austin, San Angelo, and Fort Worth but nothing that I could just drop in and visit. Guess I might have to travel to Austin some time for my first visit to an affiliate, I've never even done a WOD with another person other than trainees in BCT when I was a DS. Im sure some of you may be able to understand my frustration. Good thing I have enough equipment to execute most of the workouts on my own, and getting more and more month by month. Well by whatever means, make it happen, I guess, right?

Carlos,
The crew down at Austin are a great bunch of people. When I was there last they did a "Workout in the Park" on some Saturday's for free. Check this out:

w/f safe link to a CrossFit affiliate:

Hey Carlos,

Let me know how that goes. I just PCS'ed from Germany and am looking for something here in Texas for the short time I spend here before I go to Iraq.

Re: Crossfit Is Chasing Me

I didn't make it to any of the free sessions due to being to busy during the holiday season and all but I definitely want to drop in on a one time visit some time.

Hey Carlos - John from CrossFit Cape Fear in Fayetteville/Ft Bragg - all you need to do is stay in one place long enough or move back here!

LOL

Yeah, you'd think that a guy who'd spent 10 out of 13 years in the 82nd could get a slot to go back to Bragg, wouldn't you?

Re: Crossfit Is Chasing Me

That's not funny......
I own a house in Killeen, cause they said I'd be at the Hood for a while. Went to Iraq(knew that was happening so it's no biggie) then came down on orders for recruiting(the black mark of death!!) and they stuck me in florida. No I don't like florida, too crowded, too much traffic, too many cops getting shot(6 in 5 months). Safer in Iraq! The Saturday Under the Bridge workouts are fun and a good way to get a little CrossFit fix. The Stryker gym is fairly CrossFit friendly but I don't think there's an affiliate in the area yet. Good luck.

Re: Crossfit Is Chasing Me

Well I've got most of the equipment I need to do WOD's, and last night Alex (Alejandro from a couple of posts up) and I met for the first time and tackled TSE together. So if there are any Crossfitters in the Fort Hood / Killeen area who want to get together for a WOD in my garage let me know. We already have a duo, and I gave Alex an open ended invitation to call and come by to knock out a workout at his convenience regardless if I happen to be doing one or not. Im gonna try to post some pics of my garage on here sometime.
