Ellsworth AFB, SD
Just got back from my deployment and I've only been stationed here a few months before that.

Over at the Pride Hanger there is a caged off area that is always locked. In it is everything needed for CrossFit. I have only seen it open once, but when I got done changing into my shorts, the ONE person using the stuff left.

What do I need to do to gain access to the equipment? I am not a beginner in CrossFit or overall athletic world and would like to use the equipment.

I haven't been on the forum in a long time, so when I went looking for someone who knew anything about there being a box at ellsworth I saw your question pop up...So did you ever find out if there was a box there at ellsworth?

I inquired about it. Here's the response:

"They do offer CrossFit at Ellsworth, but it is not free as it is here.
There is also a box in Rapid City...

If she links up with Minda (HAWC) she might be able to work with her at the
HAWC...Minda is setup with some stuff there."

FYI: Minda's husband is one of the trainers/coaches here at CF Spangdahlem. He's the one who responded to me. Minda is the exercise physiologist at Ellsworth and she was a big part of starting our slice of CF here, as well.

Hope that helps.

Any more developments with CrossFit up at Ellsworth? I'm heading up there TDY for a month in September.

I'm now a L1 at Black Hills CrossFit. The idea of one being at Ellsworth AFB is still in the works (planning phase). But there is enough equipment in the base gym if you can't make it off base.

There are now two CF affiliates in Rapid City. CF Archaic is about 10 minutes away from the base and very easy to find. (wfs)
