Re: Tokyo Crossfitters?

Time, sure!

See my email above. i'll be at the Cert in Okinawa this weekend but drop me a line if you are serious about giving it a shot. For some reason, people in this thread seem more interested in chatting/posting/emailing than actually meeting up and working out though! Maybe if I start charging people, they'll show up...people seem to value a free workout as 'worthless'.

I'm at Nerima stn/Toshimaen stn so you shouldn't have far to travel.

Re: Tokyo Crossfitters?

Tim, your level isn't a problem. I was totally out of shape before I started too so I have a pretty good handle on how to break folks in. My only problem is when people waste my time by setting up meetings etc then dropping off the face of the earth. For some reason, it's happened more with folks on this board than anywhere else i've been involved with. Maybe Crossfit is just too scary.

shoot me a mail at cormac.oconnor at gmail.com and we'll work something out.

Thumbs up Re: Tokyo Crossfitters?

Congrats on the cert. I know that it had to be good, well worth it too, because you had a lot of the same trainers down there that I did. Plus Jamie was teaching this time. I don't even know how to begin to tell people how beneficial the cert was for me.

Re: Tokyo Crossfitters?

sorry Tim, can't see the email. even checked my spam folder...

I don't like posting the whole address unbroken because spam bots start using it. Just to be sure, it's "cormac.oconnor" then "@gmail.com"

Re: Tokyo Crossfitters?

I had to give a quick 10 minute recap of my experience and what I learned for the PE department. 10 minutes is NOT enough time to cram in two intense days of learning It kind of gets lost in the translation, but they were really interested in it, and wanted more info another time.

Re: Tokyo Crossfitters?

I have just moved to Tokyo, Meguro-ku (Gakugeidaigaku)
I've been doing crossfit sporadically for about a year now, the place I used to live had a very good gym for CF.
But now.... I am still looking.
Any advice is appreciated. and if there is any CF group around in Tokyo I definitely would like to join.

PS. and where do you guys buy gymnastic rings in Japan?

Thanks!

Re: Tokyo Crossfitters?

I'm here for work, for a week, and would like to get some Crossfit WODs in... can anyone help? I'm not familiar in the area I'm in but I'm staying close to the Tokyo Tower.

Re: Tokyo Crossfitters?

Just wanted to update this message board that CrossFit has officially hit Tokyo. Still working details on location, schedule, costs, etc but anticipate having regular morning classes in Akasaka come August. Still looking for a location to hold evening classes and eventually grow into a full time box. Until then check out ChikaraCrossFit.com (wfs).
