We need Crossfit in Shreveport, Louisiana!

I found crossfit through the article in Muscle & Fitness. So I went to my gym owner and asked him crossfit, he laughed and said it was a joke. I guess he's scared of what he doesn't know.

I met up with a couple of guys and did a workout saturday and i couldn't walk right till wed. (soreness). I love it....

I just wish we had a CrossFit gym here....

Any advice out there is more than welcome.

thanks, paul

Thumbs up Re: We need Crossfit in Shreveport, Louisiana!

Create your own if one of you guys have a garage. Craigslist is a great place for used equipment. I got a bench with a dip station and 300lbs for 200 bucks, squat rack with pull up bar for 250, back extention station on ebay for 80 bucks and have added 2 kettle bells (90 bucks from supply store), another set of 45's (60 bucks) and rings (40 ebay) since then. I made medicine balls from old basketballs and a bag of industrial sand from home depot (4.50). Been on it for 7 weeks and I have had everything I needed so far for under 700 bucks all together, and I never have to pay a gym membership again! That would be over 700 bucks for a year at 60 bucks a month.

Re: We need Crossfit in Shreveport, Louisiana!

oh yeah, I do box jumps on the bench, but making a box would be cheap and easy too

Re: We need Crossfit in Shreveport, Louisiana!

Paul and anyone else interested,
There are several groups of crossfitters in S'port/Bossier. I just attended my first cert this weekend and I know a few others who have gone through level 1 and some of the specific certs. We will be trying to get an e-mail list etc. together. Many of us workout at the schumpert wellness center on Bert Kouns. Contact me if you know others interested and we'll get something together.

Re: We need Crossfit in Shreveport, Louisiana!

Im in Bossier. I do most of my WOD's on Barksdale...alone and its sucks. Im used to having some fit people around me, pushing me and making it competitive. Im willing to meet up with anyone who wants to work hard.

Re: We need Crossfit in Shreveport, Louisiana!

I'm moving to Deridder in July; transferring to Ft. Polk. The really crappy thing is we just got a Crossfit in Augusta, and now we are moving to where there isn't one. I guess I'll be figuring out ways to make my own equipment also.

Re: We need Crossfit in Shreveport, Louisiana!

A couple of us have been hosting CF workouts in the park on Saturday mornings. So far we have a small group that comes out, but it's growing, and we have fun. If you would like some more information, give me a shout at my email.
