Aurora, IL Crossfitters

Could any crossfitter in the Aurora, IL area give me a recommendation for a Crossfit "friendly" gym. I go to the YMCA on 95th near Book Rd. in Naperville which is somewhat decent, but I'd really like to find a gym that has more of the proper equipment i.e. rings, kettlebells, wallballs, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

No bumper plates there ... so dumping weights. Where do you crossfit?

Re: Aurora, IL Crossfitters

We're over here in St. Charles, and the local Big Box is relatively friendly. Although the facility is not laid out for CF activity, we make it work. They get a little nervous when we sling the rings up over the rafters. No bumper plates yet, but working on it. We also hold a class every Sunday at noon, it's free and we have quite a following! When the weather permits, we utilize the park by the Geneva High School. Let me know if you're interested in hammering it out with us!

Mark,

I am definitely interested in meeting up with you guys. I workout at home, and some friendly competition/motivation would be great. When are you guys meeting next? Thanks.

Pat

Re: Aurora, IL Crossfitters

Hey guys! We meet up every Sunday at noon at the X-Sport in St. Charles. However, we'd be happy to meet up on the side! Maybe a Saturday afternoon we'll rock out? Let me know!

Re: Aurora, IL Crossfitters

I have every piece of CF equipment you can imagine, most is portable. Hit me with a pm and I will bring whatever you want to a group training session. I live in Naperville.

Re: Aurora, IL Crossfitters

We have about six of us that do the WOD regularly at Riverwest Famiy Fitness in Batavia, our workout times vary according to work schedules. In the group there are all different levels of ability and sometimes we will have more people. The gym has bumpers, they let us do the Crossfit workouts-no problem-in fact you could say Crossfit friendly. No kettelbells, Dynamax or glute-ham machine but we have them between us and bring them in when needed otherwise they have everything else.

Re: Aurora, IL Crossfitters

John and Mark

I'm definitely interested in meeting up with you guys some time. I have a weird work schedule (24 on, 48 off) ... so I kinda need to know when you guys meet a head off time. Also, I was wondering what the fee is at that fitness center in Batavia and can I work out there if I'm not a member? Mark, I read you guys meet on Sundays but I'm not a member of Xsport ... can I still work out there? My email is: rodney_yonamine@yahoo.com. If you guys can shoot me an email with that info that would be great.

Thanks for the posts guys! Hope to X-Fit with you all soon!
