Grand Forks, ND Crossfit

Anyone WODing in Grand Forks? I will likely be moving there sometime this Winter and want to get the ball rolling early on info. I'll likely start up my own gym if no one already has one. Let me know!

I go to college there and wish they would get a crossfit gym, so if your thinking of starting one that would be awesome.

Re: Grand Forks, ND Crossfit

Ben,

I started doing CF while stationed there. I feel for you, but know that during your sentence CF is totally doable at GFAFB even if it doesn't have a box.

Right before I left they started building what was to be a "functional fitness" room. They also installed a nice pull-up bar system right by the new outdoor track (useless during winter there) across from the fitness center; I never got to use either one. I'll check with my old co-worker if anything ever happened with CF there.

The fitness center itself isn't bad. It's pretty nice actually. It stays pretty empty so WODs like Linda are totally doable. The staff didnt't seem to mind it when I moved equipment around especially to the in-door track for my WODs. I just made sure to ask them first. There's a large rock-climbing wall, an in-door track (~2.5 laps = 400m), and an in-door pool. Right outside, there's the start of a 5K and 10K trail which is filled with deer (scary). It's a decent set-up.

Equipment wise this is what I had to work with while there: three Concept 2 Rowers Model Cs, Metal frame plyo-boxes from 12"-36", one squat rack/cage with pull-up handles, a pull-up/dip station, one Roman-chair, really crappy nylon ropes (broke several of these doing double unders), assorted bumpers, home-built san*****s (somebody's personal project and may be gone), and the staff kept rings on-hand (wasn't widely known and there wasn't a really good place to put them except from the second floor rails and squat-rack). There's also a Power Tower tucked away in a corner by the in-door track.

By the time I left, I saw several other people attempting CF. Hopefully, they've improved the equipment listing and facility even more.

Are you going to be working UAVs? Sucks that you have to move there. Good luck!
