Re: CrossFit - France Anyone?!

I am French and lived in France from 2002 to 2007 and CF is not on the radar there. The whole idea of functional training is not on the radar. KBs might as well be objects left behind by aliens, you can't find rings... a nightmare!

There is some CF activity in Germany (search posts for 'Germany'). Strasbourg is very close to Germany, pretty much on the border. With any luck you'll find some CFers close to you there.

I am in Switzerland now, not far from Geneva, which is a ways away, but if you are in my area at some point, let me know.

In German-speaking Switzerland, closer to Strasbourg than Geneva, there are CF guys in Basel (Bale in French) and Zurich. You might want to look into that too for a w-e of Crossfit. You can find them on this board as well.

Good luck!

Thank you, I'll bookmark this and see what I can find. Maybe I could get lucky and find something in Kehl.

A cross-fitting Texas Aggie in France. This is going to be fun.
What does that mean?
