group workouts - Chicago Illinois IL west suburbs (safe link)

A group of us like-minded functionalists (and Sloppy Hogs adventure racing team) have been casually meeting at Swallow Cliff Forest Preserve in Palos Park for some WOs. Basically, we bring KBs, MBs, and positive attitudes to "the Stairs," the ascension to the once-popular toboggan chutes for Cook County. We also meet at Blackwell Forest Preserve at Mt Trashmore, in Warrenville and minutes from Naperville, Aurora, Lisle, and Downers Grove. We'd love to have you out and learn from your CF experiences!

Here's our next scheduled meeting:

Swallow Cliff Woods North Parking Lot (by the Stairs)...IL-83 btwn 104th Ave and US-45/LaGrange Rd
TUES 06-24-08 at 1800hrs
Bring whatever gear you'd like to challenge yourself.

We are NOT a CF affiliate, or any money-making venture for that matter. A few of our friends do happen to have L1 certs for merely the fun of it.

Swallow Cliff, pretty cool. You guys are like 20 minutes from my house. Let us south siders know when you'all are getting together again. Thanks!

Louis,

Had fun at the last one. (As fun as stair climbing can be.) Let me know when you meet again. It was a pleasure meeting all of those that were there.

And thank your brother for showing up late, those extra sets showing him what we did put icing on the cake.

Blackwell is a little closer to my neck of the woods, but the stairs are worth the drive.

Next time I'll make sure to bath in mosquito spray.

Re: group workouts - Chicago Illinois IL west suburbs (safe link)

I love hill and stair workouts. It would be good training for the Go Vertical stair climb to the top of the Sears Tower. The workouts sound like a blast and I'd make the drive from up here in Oak Park but we're doing FGB at Windy City CrossFit on Saturday.

Weather in Chicago is breaking good. Next group get-together:
SAT 03-21-09 at 0900.
Bring KB or whatever butt-kicking implements you desire.
