Re: Crossfitters in Crystal Lake, IL?

Hah, funny you should ask that, as there is a great affiliate, CrossFit Fire, in McHenry, just up the road. The only reason I know this is I did the Olympic Lifting Cert there this past weekend and spent the night in the Holiday Inn in Crystal Lake.

WFS- there's a link to the gym location. They have a pretty sweet setup.

Re: Crossfitters in Crystal Lake, IL?

Nicholas thanks for the info. I did find them and they are near my house, however, I can't afford the monthly dues in this economy. I was hoping to find some people that do it at my local gym (Cardinal Fitness) or maybe some people that do it as a group elsewhere.

Re: Crossfitters in Crystal Lake, IL?

There's a few at the Fort (CrossFit Fire) that can't always make it in to classes, maybe try coming in a bit early for a Saturday 'Intro' class (10AM, after a team workout class at 9) and chat with a few people? If nothing else, others out here might have more ideas than I do.

I don't know, just tossing out a random thought, but you never know. It just might work out. ^_^

Re: Crossfitters in Crystal Lake, IL?

Joe,

I live in Barrington and have a garage gym. Spartan as many are but it has everything I need. I am typically working out M-F 5:30-7:00am and we are going to start training after 8 PM T and TH unless I'm traveling for work. If you are interested in hitting a WOD let me know I'd be more than happy to have you stop by. Shoot me an email brian.niven@hotmail.com

Brian

Re: Crossfitters in Crystal Lake, IL?

Joe,

We are opening a new CrossFit "Box" in Crystal Lake right off Route 31 near the Racket Club and Players Choice (used to be called Grand Slam USA). Check out our website at www.crossfitamrap.com and stop by for our Grand Opening on June 5th and maybe we can work out a deal for your membership rates if you would like to train with us. My contact info is on our website if you have any questions. My email is matt@crossfitamrap.com. I look forward to hearing from you or seeing you at our Grand Opening!

Take care,

Matt

Brian,

Will do. We are currently building the pull up racks and putting down all the flooring. We should be awfully close within the next 7-10 days. I will keep you posted. Take care!

Matt

Re: Crossfitters in Crystal Lake, IL?

Brian, Joe & Everyone,
We are officially open at CrossFit AMRAP (www.crossfitamrap.com - wfs). We have our free class tomorrow and every Saturday at 10AM if you'd like to come by.

Our open house is on June 5th. We've scheduled a great workout, have a DJ, door prizes, WOD prizes, 100+lbs of grassfed beef to grill out and of course some cold brews.

Hope to see you there!
--Nate
