I just moved here from upstate NY... is there anyone doing Crossfit in this area? Pretty much every gym that I've checked out in this area is targeted more towards form rather than function. And I don't really want to drive 90 miles to the closest affiliate site... Can anyone help me out?

Ron,

While not exactly in the area, there are a few of us up in the Jacksonville area that are Crossfitters. At the moment we don't have a set place to workout or time to meet (most of us are just coming off post-deployment leave). I am in the process of building up a home gym for us and as soon as a property in VA sells I should be able to purchase the rest of the equipment we need as well as build a building in my back yard to house the equipment. Anyways, I would be interested in finding out if there are anymore of us in the area as well.

Rob,
If ever you do decide to drive to Fayetteville, we'll make the wod in your honor! It'll be worth it!:biggrinthumb:

Ben - thanks for the response... but at the time being even that is a bit far away for me... my vehicle is kind of getting towards the end of its life, and I can't afford to push it.

John - I appreciate the response... perhaps if I can get the truck fixed up I will come up for a workout.

Hey ... they are starting up a new CrossFit here in Wilmington. It'll be up by January. Also, I'm a member at Gold's on Racine. There's a few guys that do CrossFit up there.

Hey guys-- I'm just getting into Crossfit-- I learned about it only last week, actually-- and I'd LOVE to know where this facility is/will be-- It would be great to get a real team up and running in the Port City!

:highfive:

It might be a death sentence to try and keep up with you guys, hehe, but I'm sure there are a lot of Marines living in and around Wilmington/Hampstead that we can combine to get a crew together-- I emailed the contact for the up-and-coming [URL="http://wilmingtoncrossfit.com/"]Wilmington CF center[/URL] on their site , but haven't heard anything back yet.

It is going to be awesome to have a bunch of like-minded people getting into this-- but I'm the first to admit I have a LOT of pre-training to do before I can hit the WOD's-- I'm chomping at the bit!

The site has been undergoing a lot of maintenance lately and some emails might have been lost. Please send future emails through PM on here.

As for location, I am looking at various lots in the Dutch Square area. (Amsterdam Way).
