Upstate NY CrossFitters (Clifton Park/Schenectady)

Hey just testing the waters and seeing if there is currently anyone doing CrossFit in the area, I'm planning on affiliating towards years end and know a lot of people in the area, none of which currently know about CF (which will certainly change). I'm aware there is Albany CF as well as Saratoga CF, I'm curious about these other areas.

I go to CF Saratoga, which is actually in Ballston Spa, so not too far from CP or Schenectady.

Awesome, how long have you both been going/afilliated?

Go see Jason at CF Albany. I can't say enough good things about what he is doing there. My brother drives up from Schenectady 5 days a week.

I haven't been to CF Saratoga, yet.

Where do you plan to open?

Josh

Re: Upstate NY CrossFitters (Clifton Park/Schenectady)

Hey Joshua, thanks for the advice I've actually spoken with Jason a few times and was able to make it up to his box 3 times this week. You're absolutely right he is running a great thing there at Albany CF. As far as location I'm leaning towards Clifton Park, it is a great location and it seems like it has more of the right demographic than Schenectady does.

What's your brothers name Josh? Is your family from Schenectady?

Re: Upstate NY CrossFitters (Clifton Park/Schenectady)

Yeah, I agree as well that Clifton Park has the better demographic than Schenectady. There just isn't enough money in Schenectady. I've taken a few certs at CF Albany, and just stopped up to CF Saratoga to say hi the other day. Both places have great people.

FYI...I'm looking for a level 1 this spring some time. I found one in NJ in January, but hoping for February/March timeframe. If anyone knows of one close by in the spring please let me know.
