Still looking in Balad, Iraq...
Would love to CF here in Iraq. Male or Female...I'm a female civilian on the West Side (near flightline). Looking forward to hearing from anyone! Thanks!

Check out the westside Fitness center, there have been flyers for some sort of Crossfit "hybrid" class that recently started. Not sure of the programming, but it is on your side of base.

If you have transportation and can make it to the the H6 fitness center, there are organized Crossfit times at 0530, 1030 and 1500. We have some bumpers, good KB assortment, one set of rings and pullup bars. Come join us if you can!

Hey Bryan!
Thanks for the info. I did see that flyer. I start work at 6:15 and I heard that gym was over on the Air Force side (not really for certain)....we are kind of stuck on this side of the base....heard I can't even ride my bike to that side...AAARRRGH! Any other suggestions? Or people I can hook up with?
Man, thanks tons for responding!

You might check with the west side gym to see if you could do WODs there outside of the hybrid class time. If you have a day off, track the A bus to our side of the base and meet Pukie with us.

Be sure to try to find some of the guys out on your side of base too -- some of the smaller compounds are VERY CrossFit friendly.

B! Hope you're still rocking Balad! Miss you guys!
