CrossFit in Dutchess County NY Area

Hello,

My name is Anthony Militello. Today I spoke with the head of CrossFit Albany and was told that there were a few people interested in starting a CF gym in Rhinebeck NY. Ironically enough just the other day I had this mind-blowing vision of opening my own unorthodox style gym. I would LOVE to talk with anyone that is interested and lives in the area. I my self-live in Red hook right off of the Bard college campus on 9G. I am open to all ideas.

My background is in BJJ and MMA. I work one day a week at Black and Blue MMA in Kingston NY and train there 3-5 days a week. I am currently a personal trainer at IXL health and fitness in Saugerties and hate it. Machines and bench press junkies drive me nuts. I also have a pretty big background in powerlifting and I'm forever learning new things.

As far as equipment, I have three K-bells, two 35's and one 55 and a set of Rings. I'm willing to help however I can (though not much) money wise for getting gear but that can be discussed via e-mail or phone number!

My e-mail is Anthony.M.Militello@gmail.com PLEASE e-mail me with any regards to this post even if you just want to get together and do a WOD! LATER!
-Anthony

Quinn,
Small world. How long ago did she leave? What year did she graduate?
I've got to say though where ever I go someone will know of Rhinebeck.
Weather it be the Beekman Arms or the Aerodrome.
Or the latest Hamptons on the Hudson'

She left back in the 70's and graduated in 68. My parents had their reception at Foster's and I still remeber going to stickley's and getting toys.
