Crossfit Balad?

I would like to continue Crossfit in Iraq. Does anyone know if a CrossFit gym exists on Balad. The base is big, so I'm hoping there is at least something.

Lee,
Have you found Crossfit in Balad? I recently begun Crossfit on the recommendation of my commander stated one day "do you love pushups? I love pushups". I can now honestly say that I too love pushups thanks to Crossfit.

I will be heading over to Balad in the beginning of May. Have you found anything?

Re: Crossfit Balad?

I was on JBB last year and the gym in the Air Force area had WODs posted as well as plyo boxes, kettlebells, and pull up bars. I know that getting in was sometimes a challenge but it will be worth the effort. Hope this helps.

Re: Crossfit Balad?

I was just on Balad getting services on our vehicles for the last few days and found the Crossfit Gym. The Air Force Gym (In the Air Force compound near the Pax terminal) runs a Crossfit program at 1030 and 1500 each day. They were more than willing to let my buddy and I (Army guys just visiting Balad) workout with them and didn't mind that we're on a different workout than they are.

Thanks to Vanessa for the tips and making me dip all the way on those ring dips.
-Greg

Re: Crossfit Balad?

Balad runs CrossFit at least three times a day; typically, 0545, 1030 and 1500. Currently, we have two Level 1 trainers who program a schedule. The schedule is sometimes based on the main site, though we're usually a few days behind due to equipment or time considerations.
Email me if you have questions about getting into H-6 (where classes are held). We're always happy to have new CrossFitters, and we're thrilled to report that we're getting new equipment.

You did great, Greg! It was great to have you guys in with us.
