Opening a gym in Stockholm, Sweden

Hi!

My intention and goal is to open a gym (very soon) in Stockholm, Sweden. I'm looking for a place right now and I'm wondering if there is anyone else here from Stockholm who would be interested in a partnership.

I have no CrossFit certification but I already use CrossFit principles for both my own and my clients training at a commersial gym. When I open my own place I will surely continue to use these principles. As soon as I'm able - a trip goes to a cert. But untill then I just want to know the guidlines for using CrossFit principles without a cert and running a gym (CrossFit style) but not as an affiliate. Off course I will not claim to be CrossFit trainer with a CrossFit gym. Still I want to be able to show my clients where most of my principles and methods come from instead of making it look like I'm the mastermind behind the magic. So, what is ok and not?

Back to the main topic: Is there anyone here from Stockholm who is also eager to start a garage gym? I'm already rowing the boat, but a little help with the other oar wouldn't hurt

We have a new place for Swedish CFers! www.crossfitnordic.se go and check it out. We need more traffic to the page and more posts for the forums.

The plan is to start a CF gym in Stockholm within 4 months. And we need all the help and support we can get!

Met a number of the CF Sthlm crew at the cert in Manchester, perhaps you should get in touch with them

http://www.fightercentre.com/sthlm/gym.asp

I don't know how big Stockholm is, but perhaps there's an avenue for partnership there, or a second CF facility?

Re: Opening a gym in Stockholm, Sweden

Well.. it's fun to track back the digital foot prints of this journey.
Our meeting went well and here we are now:

Owners of Stockholms only pure CrossFit box (gym.crossfitnordic.se)

Operating the largest web portal for CrossFit in Scandinavia (crossfitnordic.se)

A dream come true
