Hi all,

Just back from Iraq (yeah!) and started CF over there. Wow... the results are encouraging. I need to get rolling and am seeking a group, preferably near Fort Campbell. Also looking for Oly lift instruction. Anyone?

Welcome back! I've still got some friends over there from Campbell.

There are some people that get together in Nashville, I call Nashville home but spend very little actual time there because I travel for work.

I would suggest trying to get a group going on base, I'm sure there are others there.

No idea on oly instruction in the area, but then again, I never looked.

The YMCA in green hills has a set of bumper plates. Actually they have oly bars, and 4x45# bumpers. Not a terrible setup, kinda low ceilings though. I'm 5'11" and I have a few inches to spare wiht a clean grip at full overhead extension.

I spent most of my time in Nashville doing Crassfit at the Vandy Student rec center, lots of weights, C2s, pullup bars, outdoor track with pullup bar and boxes for jumping. I did undergrad, grad school and then worked there for two years, so I am intimately familiar with the gym there.

Hey Kevin, welcome home! There are a few of us here in Nashville. We are trying to get together on the weekends for workouts if not more often.

I'm in Louisville, and just got back from Coach B's Cert. Don't have bumper plates, but I can teach you what he taught me with PVC.

I may be in Nashville next week as well. Not sure yet. Message me if you have any interest.
