Crossfitters in Sugarland or Katy, TX

I don't know *any* CFers in Southwest Houston. Dunno exactly where you are moving, but you may find the drive up to Crossfit Champions doable if you're not too far south. I live in Memorial and will let you know if I hear of anything developing on the west side.

Re: Crossfitters in Sugarland or Katy, TX

Neal,

Sorry that you had no luck in your search. My pops lives in First Colony and I sometimes Crossfit at Sweetwater Country Club when I am in town. There is no specialized Crossfit/O-Lift/etc. gear, but there are a good amount of free weights, and it seems like few people other than HS kids use them.

No one has ever complained to me about anything I do there.

Of course, the country club is an expensive place to join...

Neal,

The name's Houston, yes just like the city. Been doin crossfit for about a month now, came across the CrossFit Houston affiliate page and I might join them this Sat. for a free wokout they are hosting, and to see what they are all about. Was wondering what your experience was like. I am the only one in my gym doing this style of workout, a little place called Sound Fitness. I really just need to find a nother person to feel the pain with. anyway sorry for the ramble. take care bro.

I actually CrossFit out of my garage in Katy. I moved here the middle of last year. My wife and I used to run the CrossFit Connecticut affifliate out of our barn until we moved. Now we are just CrossFitting on the down low.

Re: Crossfitters in Sugarland or Katy, TX

Neal,

I've been Crossfitting for months now but just joined recent postings in January of this year. Email me at gpatenaude@comcast.net. CFHouston is 27 miles away and I'm going to see Carlos Ibarra this week. His pull up bar is newly installed Friday night. I teach spin at the two globo gyms in Missouri City and Sugarland but use LA fitness in Missouri City for my WOD's. Shoot me an email when your in the neighborhood or if you see me in the area give me a CrossFit Hello. Just posted a new thread with the same purpose but I freakin' messed up the spelling and am trying to edit it as we speak.

Re: Crossfitters in Sugarland or Katy, TX

I have worked out with both CF Champions, and CF Houston. Both super nice groups. I went to the free workout/opening of their new box last week. Great space! They mentioned that someone on the west side was going to come see how they run their workouts (and possibly affiliate?). Not sure if that may have been you Grace? Anyway, I do the garage gym thing and occasionally visit with the groups above. I also just attended the Dallas cert. Had a great time. Anyway, I'm on the SE side in Friendswood, but if anyone wants to get together sometime, drop me a line.

Jeff, Yep that would be me but not for a while (2-3 years). My current clientele and bootcampers are currently going through the old rut (NASM -stuff). I am going to Cert 1 in San Diego April 19 & 20 for starters. Then, I'll go through the other certs like barbell, running, etc. CF Houston is planning on holding a Kettle Bell Cert next year. That would be cool, huh?
Anyway, are you signing up for the Crossfit Challenge in Houston. They're having it at Breakaway Speed (Meyerland Area). Best time to network. I'm thinking of doing it but not sure about my shoulder press #'s. For my age and weight (42 & 120), am pretty proud of my 1 Rep DL PR = 190. There are probably a lot of CF she-bada$$es who will come out of the woodwork and show up for the challenge.
Friendswood...hmmm, you're close to Tim Swords (big oly guy in League City). He has kids going to Ukraine in a few weeks. I believe he consults with CF once in a while. You're about 30-45 minutes from Missouri City. Shoot me an email when you're around this part of town sometime.

Mike, Where does your wife do her WOD's? I'm in Missouri City/Sugarland and have free memberships at LA Fitness and 24Hour Fitness. Would love to do a few WOD's with her sometime. Have not seen a soul do CF WOD's around here in my area. My email is on one of the previous replies. If she's interested, please have her contact me. Thanks.
