Re: Central Illinois Crossfitters

hey nick et.al. I too would like to get together with more people for the workouts. It helps quite a bit going through the tough workouts with others. If you're still up for it, I'd be down for a visit to taylorville...otherwise, stupid Gold's gym in Springfield is where I'm at.

Re: Central Illinois Crossfitters

Fellas,
I'll be moving to Burlington, IA (right on the Mississippi river) in the beginning of August and am looking for anyone to train with or any recommendations for facilities?

Re: Central Illinois Crossfitters

I'll be in Bloomington next weekend if anyone is interested in getting together for a WOD. Let me know.

Re: Central Illinois CrossFitters

Hey all. I stumbled on this today. My wife and I live in Springfield and have started CrossFitting. We're doing the beginner program (for about 4-5 weeks now) with some WOD's thrown in on the weekends.

Jennie, I was wondering about your offer. Would it be possible for a group of us from "down south" could come up for a weekend and check our form for all the oly lifts, kipping, etc.? It would help to see real CrossFitters in action and get a feel for the vibe. I'm not sure if anyone else would be interested, but I would be. My wife might be interested too, but not sure she'd want the kids at a relatives for the whole weekend.

As I'm thinking about this, I realized you might not see it on here, so I'm PM you as well. (hopefully that is ok!)

Is anyone else down south interested?

Re: Central Illinois CrossFitters

Jim, we'd love to have you if you're ever in the area. We're 90 miles north of Bloomington up I-55. I'm also in Bloomington periodically to visit the folks.

Re: Central Illinois CrossFitters

Hey Guys,

I'm from Washington, IL (15 minutes outside of Peoria) and have been CrossFitting off-and-on for the last year. A friend of mine and I work out at Five Points in Washington.

I'm curious how this area would respond to a CrossFit affiliate. From my perception, it's relatively unknown here.

Re: Central Illinois CrossFitters

Yeah, my wife and I have wondered that as well. I doubt we'll ever open one, but we point out different spots we see that would be a good fit for a box. There is no way we could get away with starting out in our garage. Some of our older neighbors have nothing better to do than "watch over" all the others.

Still, a couple can dream!
