Looking for CrossFit in Chicago area, north shore
 
I'm looking to get started in crossfit but I don't know of anyone in the Deerfield/Highland Park area that is involved. Can anyone recommend a trainer or facility that caters to CrossFit in this area? :thanx:

I am attempting to start up a group out in the Huntley/Crystal Lake area since the only true gyms seem to be in Rockford and Chicago.

I'm new and just getting into crossfit - attempting some of the scaled down workouts, really trying to be sure I'm doing it correctly. There was another thread for someone looking for those in Chicago.

I would definitely be interested in working with some of the new & less advanced members in the area.

:p

Hi Barry!

My BF and I will be flying out to Cali this weekend for our level 1 Crossfit Certification. Shortly after our return we will be affiliating and starting a gym in Johnsburg. It's kinda far from Deerfield, but not as far as Rockford! Our gym is called the Fire House...you can check out their location at www.firehouseathletics.com

Our space is already set up, we just need to get our certification so we can affiliate. We'd love to have you stop by!

Take Care,
Jennie Forman

There is so much out there in the Illinois' area now that you do have a couple of choices.

1) Windycity Crossfit in chicago itself.

2) Rockford Crossfit. A bit of a hike but worth the trip.

3) Dave Ojeda owns Crossfit Chicago.

4) Future Firehouse Crossfit will be opening and that is exciting also.

5) *Within Chicago also I run an outdoor starting Crossfit group workout at Wilson Park (*NW side of chicago). If any of you need more information please don't hesitate to call any of the above or email and you'll get prompt replies.

5) There are plenty of others practicing Crossfit in your area and some may not be posting either. Have patience. One of us will be happy to accomodate you one way or another.



*I am heading out to Crossfit Level 1 Cert next week in Texas, and boy am I stoked. I will be updating the blog and getting guest writers also.

Stay tuned.

I do hope this information helps.
