Xfit in NEPA??

Hey!

I am just getting back into crossfit and was wondering if there is anybody from the North Eastern PA region that also uses Xfit. I need a workout buddy!!! I have some equipment and am saving up for a rack and oly weights. I NEED XFIT FRIENDS!!!

The closest affiliate is in Reading, PA and that is about an hour and a half away from where I live and is defintly not a commute I'd like to make in a lifted Jeep Cherokee on mudders :P

Hi Evan

I don't know how far you are from Palmerton, Pa, but a friend of mine is open an affilate soon. She currently has a gym right now and is in the process of expanding. Watch the mainpage for updates.

Re: Xfit in NEPA??

That's about 60 miles away according to MapQuest. It is still a bit far, but is 40 or so miles closer than Reading. Hopefully I can get a little 4 cyl. soon, so the commute won't be as costly. Any idea on an estimate of the opening date? I have never been to a Crossfit gym and I am really excited to see one and feel what kinda atmosphere it has. Thanks a lot for the info, I appreciate it!

I grew up in Scranton but moved to the Harrisburg area in '78 after college. I do go to my dad's cottage in the summer.......CrossFit Lake Carey.

I'm not actually located in Scranton, it's just the closest city. I live in Eynon, you know "up the eynon"

I do not know if she set a tentative date for her crossfit opening. I've been busy skiing lately so I've been doing workouts at home. I will let you know when she plans on opening.

Re: Xfit in NEPA??

Hey-I'm in Walnutport!! Just signed up yesterday and started Crossfit 2 days ago after reading about it for awhile.
Is this gym the Dedicated Fitness? Somehow I found that on the web as a Crossfit place. I'd be psyched to find a local Crossfit place and others who would help me with form, etc.
I'm a 37 y.o. out of shape Aikido, Japanese Jujutsu and Kempo person. I've been swimming a bit in the last month and trying to shed some of this fat I've put on.
