Cool Fort Bragg...which on post gym to use?

Title pretty much says it all. I am at Fort Bragg for the next month and would like some advice on which gym on post I should work out at. I'm pretty much looking for the gym that is most compatible with crossfit.

Before anyone asks, I won't be going to a local affiliate because i am training at the local mma joint. Also, I have all my own equipment (minus a rower and rack), but am putting it in storage.

Thanks ahead of time.

When I was last there I always used the Pope Air Force Base gym, but that all could of changed in the last few months. I felt like I had much more space to utilize.

If I could, I'd post a picture of Tim Kennedy because he trains at the mma place i just started going to. Also, the mma gym is closer to me and just became crossfit affiliated as well.

Tucker has a good facility. they are missing pull-up bars, dip station and rings. Also they have some weird hours.
I've use Fredericks alot because I can run in and out of the door if I have to for a WO, but no rowers.
Callahan and Ritz-epps are good for days where running or rowing are involved. You just have to find room to HSPU in the gyms because alot of walls are glass covered.

A picture is said to be worth a 1,000 words, but not exactly the whole story ;-)

Re: Fort Bragg...which on post gym to use?

Honestly, I can't stand all but one of the on-post gyms. If you're here for an SF-related purpose, there's a gym you can use. PM me and I'll let you know where to go and how to get in. I personally go to Redpoint off-base. Nice bouldering/climbing walls, a big CF facility, and mats for no-gi BJJ, wrestling, Muay Thai, and MMA.

Someone told me today that Tucker's basketball court area has been turned into a CrossFit-style gym. Can anyone confirm?
