Is anyone interested in being part of a Crossfit facility in Virginia Beach. I know their are quite a few practitioners in the area who would utilize a facility, but I am looking for people who would be interested in part time employment. If any one is interested please send me an email.

James: Actually, we do have an affiliate already:

They don't run the highest profile (CrossFit is only part of what they do; they're seriously into martial arts), but based on my past interaction, they're good people . . .

I also am interested in opening a CF in VB. I know of 1 trainer that is looking for work. I wanted to own the facility, not necessarily train people. How far along are you in getting one open? Would you consider a partnership? I am a real estate developer, and I would love to help you find the right building. I would consider buying a building and leasing it out as the box for a CF gym. Let's touch base and exchange ideas.

Re: Crosfit facility in Virginia Beach/Norfolk, VA

James, I am a active duty Marine, and I am moving up to Norfolk in October. I have been doing CrossFit for over a year now, and teaching Martial Arts for the Marine Corps for three. Nov 17-18 I am going to the Crossfit Certification in PA. I would be interested in helping you out part-time, depending on the hours and location from NOB. I like to get some more information.

Re: Crosfit facility in Virginia Beach/Norfolk, VA

Guys, there is a hell of a CF facilty in VB that runs strictly CF workouts. They have a nice new gym and run by a good team. Thomi and Pat. I was up in VB a few months ago and they kicked my ***. They were great! Look them up!

I'll "third" the Pat and Thomi recommendation. I worked out with them while I was back east at a wedding. We did FGB that day...that'll get ya going before a wedding!
