Anyone in Ottawa out there?

I've been doing CrossFit for a few months now, I'm wondering if there's potential training partners on the forums.

There was one fellow who mentioned he was trying to open a CF facility in Ottawa, but I haven't heard from him since then.

There was another fellow {Jason ~ are you out there} who tried to get a 'workout in the park' going. Lots of interest, but not enough free bodies on the day scheduled. Do we want to try this again?

I was thinking of getting something going, park workouts and such. Instead my focus is on leaving the region. Crossfit Vancouver/Victoria here I come!

I'm in Ottawa (east end).

I'm interested in a park workout but I'll be the slow fat guy sitting in the shade under the tree after the first five minutes.

Good luck on the left coast David - it looks like Vancouver has a great Xfit community going.

I'm trying to get more into rather than the one CF workout a week.

I'm guessing a partner could help sometimes.

As for the park workout, I remember hearing about the possibility of it but never heard anything about it.

I talked to the fellow who was planning the Facility a few months ago. It has been put on hold while he's in the 'Ghan.

I'm downtown.

Yeah he is being deployed to afghanistan along with the other half of my former unit (the previous half is there now) If you guys are really interested in the park thing I was already planning to do a park event in Kingston once a month, so Ottawa is no big detour!

I'd be glad to drive out with the trailer and bring my equipment if someone local can find a decent location! I've got some family out there and am sure I would have no problem having a place to stay. I might have to ask for a few bucks though just to defer the cost of fuel... I'm out in Sudbury! Would be like $10, $20 at most.

So with all that, if you Ottawa folks are up for it I'm all about it...

NOt a bad idea. I'd probably drive up to Kingston for something like that.

I'm pumped about the idea. But, I'm off to Orillia for an NCCP Gymnastics Coaching cert for the weekend, I leave first thing in the morning.

I was planning on having a session in Kingston on the 19th of August. So I could easily work my way over to Ottawa that weekend without any trouble. I'm thinking Sunday the 20th in Ottawa. Marc if you or any of the others have any ideas please share, I'll do my best to check up on this thread while I'm in Orillia... And feel free to email me too.
