CrossFitters in New Hampshire

Hi,

I live in Lebanon, NH and wouldn't mind finding others in the area that do Crossfit. I have been doing Crossfit for 11 months and have not met anyone at the local gym who is doing Crossfit or who would be interested in sticking to Crossfit.

Mark

Re: CrossFitters in New Hampshire

Hey Mark,
Just wondering how close you are to Manchester? My brother lives there and would need some hands on assistance in getting into Crossfit. He's currently pretty sedentary and could benefit greatly from this. He's always been athletic and into gymnastics, so I think it would be good for him. I told him I'd ask around to see about Crossfitters in his area and get back to him!

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,

I am about 1.5 hours from Manchester, so I probably won't be able to help. If your brother moves or something changes, let me know. I will be in this area for couple more years for sure.

Thanks,
Mark

Re: CrossFitters in New Hampshire

Nice to see some NH folks.

I train in Manchester and Tilton NH. I've not yet seen another CrossFitter at any of my gyms, nor anyone else with kettlebells. I'm too much of a CrossFit beginner to teach anyone, but I'd kill to have a workout partner once in a while. Lebanon is an hour-plus from where I live, unfortunately.

As for your brother, Jeff, there's a gym in Manchester that does private training, CrossFit style. (The owner is Level I certified.) I train there a few times a month to get a second set of eyes on my form. Plus they have a ton of great toys. I can provide details if you want, send me a message.

Melissa

Hi Melissa,

Maybe one of these days we could meet in Manchester or Lebanon for a WOD. Good luck with your training.

Re: CrossFitters in New Hampshire

Hi Mark,

Sure! Let me know if you ever get over to the Tilton/Manchester area, and I'll do the same if I head west (or if I feel like taking a road trip). I've been teaching a few people some kettlebell basics, and I've sort of made friends at the gym with a guy who doesn't CrossFit, but does good stuff like cleans and deadlifts. Sometimes I ask him for feedback on my form. On a daily basis, though, I'm on my own over here.

Melissa

Re: CrossFitters in New Hampshire

Sounds good to me, I will keep that in mind, Melissa. There is an affilate on the CF home page that is supposed to be in Manchester. Their website hasn't changed for a long time and I wonder if they have gone out of business. You haven't run across the gym by chance or know anything about it? Here is the address

They are defunct, as far as I know. I haven't seen them doing anything active in almost a year. I wrote to CF Headquarters to see if they could provide any details, but they aren't getting a response from the affiliate either.

Re: CrossFitters in New Hampshire

Melissa,

I frequent NH to visit my parents in Raymond, 20 minutes from Manchester. Any time I am there I try to complete a WOD or two. My next visit is a short one in May, and then a longer one in June. Would you be interested in meeting up for a WOD? I have been doing crossfit for just under a year at CrossFit Fairfax in Fairfax, VA.

Cheers,
Sarah
