Re: Crossfitters in Kandahar, Afghanistan

Drove past a couple of people wearing CF T-shirts today but didn't get a chance to stop and ask them when they work out!

Anyways let me know if anybody is around!
Hey Randy,

I'll be heading to Kandahar AB for 12 months starting in Aug/Sept 2010. I'd love to here what Xfit you found happening there?

Re: Crossfitters in Kandahar, Afghanistan

Just got to KAF the other day, settled in (mostly) and am now searching for a descent gym setup and training group/partner. Anybody around?

Unfortunately there is no Crossfit gym at KAF, but the American gym has some nice open areas (they're actually getting eaten up by "abs" machines unfortunately) that you can do the WOD in. Basically a globo, no bumpers/rings/kettlebells or any other goodies, but they do have a GHD.

The NATO gym is the epitome of a globo gym and the only redeeming factor is they have c2 rowers. Other than that, they don't have a single olympic barbell.

Cool Re: Crossfitters in Kandahar, Afghanistan

Hey, devil...try the Canadian gym. They've got just about everything you need, and post WODs on the whiteboard.
Fridays at 2010h, they do a CrossFit class. I'm going to go over tomorrow night to check out the class.

Re: Crossfitters in Kandahar, Afghanistan

How is the CrossFit gym in Kandahar? I am deploying in 3 weeks, and am looking forward to nothing but work and training for the next 9 months.

Do they have/need any certified trainers? I have my level one cert.

Where is the Canadian gym located? I can't make the class because I work until midnight, but i'd like a gym with some good gear.

I wasn't even aware of a Canadian gym here, just the NATO and American gyms. The NATO and American gyms are globos and unless this Canadian thing is for real, there are no CF gyms on KAF. Can't wait to check it out, though, once I find out where it is!

Re: Crossfitters in Kandahar, Afghanistan

I found the web site www.crossfitkandahar.com (WFS) . Not sure where it takes place.. Maybe this Canadian gym?

Where is this gym at?
