I am moving to the Muscatine area in late Aug. I will for sure be in contact with you. I think we will only be about 30 minutes away from Davenport.

Re: Davenport, IA

Sorry for the super late responses. I thought this thread had died and I just came to give it a fresh bump.

Luckily a faculty member is big into crossfit and influenced the student activities director to give some $ for some equipment. Since it has become popular we should be getting a bunch of new equipment next trimester. *fingers crossed*

How often do you guys work out?
Hey Robert, I graduated from Palmer in June 06 and now I'm in rural IL (Pike county) I didn't know about crossfit while I was in school but I've been obsessed for the last 2 months since I found it.

Which faculty member is into crossfit? Juering? I'll be there for homecoming this week, maybe we could meet up. I'm eager to head back to the gym and get a crossfit style WO!

Wow once again I forget to check it! I would have loved to rock a few out with ya! Maybe talk some shop too?

It was Dr. Toby Scott. I can't recall if he was there in 06 or not. He taught the PT 1 and 2 labs.

If you're in the area shoot me a PM and I'll see what we can do.

Re: Davenport, IA

Hey Robert, I'm originally from the Independence area. I've been stationed in Okinawa, Japan for 2 years and I'm coming home in the end of September for a few weeks. I want to find some Crossfitters at home that I could work out with while I'm there.

Let me know.

Re: Davenport, IA

Hey guys, this is my first post as I just signed up last night. I'm currently in the Marine Corps stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA. One of the guys I work with got me turned onto Crossfit about two months ago. Since then I've done sporadic WODs with him, and over the past two weeks really started getting in to it. Anyways, I love it and I'm getting out mid September and moving back home (Rock Island). Obviously I've searched for an affiliate in the QC area and came up empty handed as you all know already. For those that do it at Palmer, do you have to be a student or alum to use the facilities?? I would assume so, which sucks for me. Anyways just wanted to introduce myself to the QC crossfit community and I look forward to the challenge of trying to do crossfit back home.

If we get a hopper going maybe we could all meet in a park or something. I'll keep the email for sure.

Yeah I'm pretty sure the gym is for faculty/students/alums. Bettendorff has Camp Militich (sp?) and I'm pretty sure they have just about everything a xfitter needs.


I think we should organize a weekend wod. Could be a great time.
