Anyone from Sweden?

I know I´ve asked this question before, but I try again.
Is there anyone here except for me that´s rom Sweden and if so, where do you live?

I live in Gothenburg and I think it would be very nice to have someone to workout with sometimes. My other friends do the ordinary bodybuilding stuff. I´ve tried} to talk them into doing Crossfit, but so far they have resisted. I guess I will have to use some pliers and glowing coals.:wink:

"I guess I will have to use some pliers and glowing coals."

You are aware that Coach reads this message board, you know, the guy who makes up the WOD?
No need to give him any more gruesome ideas than the ones he already has.

On a serious note Per, I'm in California, so I can't help much I'm afraid. Good Luck though, and keep looking, a training partner definitely adds positive benefits to the training.

Re: Anyone from Sweden?

I live and train down in Växjö, we have everything we need for CrossFit - as for motivated partners to train with.

The gym we train at are located on the Campus and my training partners are all police officer students - It is awesome!!

I have been doing CrossFit since December last year - follow the WODs on a regular basis as my only workout besides walking in ski hills with weighted backpack

Re: Anyone from Sweden?

We've got a Swede training with us, but he's moving back to Stockholm in July. I'll point him toward this thread.

Talking Re: Anyone from Sweden?

Hey! I'm from Stockholm, Bromma
I been doing CF about several weeks. I go in for judo, it's my favorit. It was strange begining, my friend make special WODs for me, because I have only my body and rope)))
It's so difficult to do that alone, It'll be great to have a WOD'smate)))

Re: Anyone from Sweden?

Här i Kalmar är vi några gyminstruktörer på F&S som kört Crossfit sedan i vintras och sedan ett par månader kör vi strikt wods enligt crossfit.com. Min egen träning har fått ett hård spark rakt framåt i rätt riktning och en nytändning som jag sällan haft innan.

Om nån är sugen och i närheten så hör av er så kör vi ett gemensamt pass!

Re: Anyone from Sweden?

Tommy, Yulia,

I live in Vällingby and work in Vasastan and am looking for a place to do WOD's that has bumper plates and a lifting platform as well as rings. There are two Stockholm affiliates listed on the CF website. I stopped by the one at Slussen earlier in the week but I didn't see that type of equipment. I haven't gone by Balance in town yet, but they only run CF during lunch hour a couple of times a week, and they cost a ton, so it doesn't seem likely. They are supposed to open a new location in Solna this month, and it will be closer for me, so I plan to check it out.

If you know of any other place in town where we might be able to follow Coach's WOD's on a regular basis, post it here.

We have a new place for Swedish CFers! www.crossfitnordic.se go and check it out. We need more traffic to the page and more posts for the forums.

The plan is to start a CF gym in Stockholm within 4 months. And we need all the help and support we can get!
