Detroit area here, sorry. But if you ever come over to the "most beautiful (chuckle) side of the state..." let me know

My parents live in Grand Haven. I get up there a few times a year. Know any CrossFitters in your area planning to run the Grand Rapids Marathon? I'm running it and was looking for a few good folks to talk to along the way. It'd be nice to talk about CrossFit for a few of those miles.

So far I haven't find any one in the area that does Cf besides myself and I am not ready to run a marathon yet. Took to many years off and 1 to many beers during college.

Hey Michael,

Just came across your post while doing a google search for "crossfit Grand Rapids". You're not alone. Me and my buddy have been doing CF for about 5 months, finally doing most wod's without scaling. I live in Grand Rapids and he lives Wyoming.

Chris

Re: Any Grand Rapids, MI CFers out there

We both work in Holland. We have a decent gym at work and mostly workout at lunch. We're both looking at buying new houses and the one I'm looking at has room for a cf gym. We already have a bit of equipment to start. We've also talked of renting a space but with each of us having young kids our evenings are pretty busy.
Where are you working out.

Chris
