Hey everybody.
Crossfit is coming to Orlando, Altamonte, Longwood and Sanford areas.

It's going to be a bad a** 2000 sq.ft facility with monkey bars, rings, rowers, rope, rope ladder, parkour and strongman equpment (Strongman is addictive and great so is CF and parkour) and the works.

Going to keep it short for now.
Monique will add more a bit later.

The plan is to have a Grand opening on March 31 if everything goes smooth. Gym should be completely ready by mid March.

Brief plan for the Grand Opening includes:
a. Strongman events: 800 lbs tire flip, keg toss, truck pull.
b. Short lecture by the amazing T.J. Cooper of CrossFit East and one of the lead guys in CF community.
c. CF workout demo by T.J.'s guys from CF East and maybe myself.
d. Parkour and Freerunning demo by Renzhe (http://www.renzheparkour.com/ - Winners of the Yahoo! Talent Show just recently - great guys.
Here's their vid off Youtube:

e. Cookout and so on!

The website will be updated often.

Thank you all for being a part of CrossFit - it's awesome!

P.S. If you're local or going to be visiting this area before the opening and want to come by the gym - shoot me an email lsoubbotine@mail.com

Where exactly are you going to be located? I live in Deland and work in Orlando so I drive right by all the areas you mentioned.

The family and I will definitely be at the gym for the grand opening as long as my son doesn't have a gymnastics meet that day.

Best of luck!

Derek
Our location is Hwy 434 and Hwy 427 (Ronald Reagan Blvd.) about 3-4 miles away from I-4 Longwood exit.

If you want to drive by sometime earlier and check out the facility call (407) 802 6398.
And of course check out the website to see the progress and exact address.
There'll be new pics tonight.

Cool shots of the demolition. I know 434 / 427 well I am trying to get my head wrapped around your building.

I will give you a call when I can come by. I am really looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
