Any Mainers out there?
Hey I just moved to Maine a few months back, and wondered if there were plans to get a gym going up here. I am stationed at NAS Brunswick, so it would be great if there was someone else from there doing CrossFit.

Re: Any Mainers out there?
I just moved here from NY and have also been looking for others to do Crossfit with. I have not really done a whole lot, just a few exercises on my own. We are moving to Gray in a week, I know that is kinda far for you. I have some weights to get a good workout at home, but not a whole lot. I hope to add on little by little. Like i said, I am just starting but would like to get more into it. So if you find others here in the area, let me know.

Re: Any Mainers out there?
Brian, I am actually in the Lake Region area. Naples to be exact, probably about 20-30 mins from you. Me and a few friends plan on doing a lot of crossfit this summer, I am in the process of fabricating a pullup station to do pullups, hang rings and punching bags, etc. I also have kettlebells, rings, d-balls, oly bars, and over 400lbs in bumpers. I just got back from California, so I am still getting settled and set up, but if you are looking for people to work out with let me know, as I always am.

Re: Any Mainers out there?
John, sounds great. I will close on a house this Friday, in Gray. So i am good to go this summer, just let me know. Hit me up on my email, and we can exchange phone #'s. Ian, give me a call when you get out here as well. I just moved here myself, from NY. My wife is orig. from Maine. I just got out of the Air Force, i now have a full time position in the Air Guard unit in South Portland. Good luck on your transition.

Re: Any Mainers out there?
I live in Freeport, and have been doing crossfit on my own between home and work in Augusta. I don't have a facility or much of anything at home but a pull-up bar/rings and about 200lbs in weights. I am going to the cert in Vassleboro 19-20 June, trying all I can to get something going...

Re: Any Mainers out there?
there is a group of CF'ers in the augusta area that train regularly in winthrop at united fitness. we have one level 1 cert and another going to the june cert as a game warden. still getting equipment, but there is early talk of getting something official going in the augusta area.

if you guys want, drop me an email and i'll send you all updates on what's going on with a facility if you want. guys in the freeport and brunswick area would be ok but gray might be a bit of a drive.

glad to see some CF'ers close by!!!

I am in the National guard and I have a previous commitment on the 21st of June. I pulled some strings and they let me go to what was the LEO but is now open to public safety officials...
