CF around Ramstein, Germany

Are there any CFers around the Baumholder/Ramstein Germany? i just started and am looking to find the best gym for doing the WODs. Ramstein is alright but doesn't have bumper plates or rowers (except at Northside FC, but no other free weights there).

Looking to get into this CF stuff...I'm stationed at Spangdahlem - heard a few people talk of CF, but don't know of any gyms that dedicate any space for it...

Re: CF around Ramstein, Germany

jason, it's a long time away but i'll be there in a year. can you post if/when you find somewhere to CF. don't know what i'll do if i get there and the only place is the base gym (since they will probably frown on some of the lifts, etc)

Re: CF around Ramstein, Germany

Hey guys what's going on? I'm stationed at Ramstein AB and have been here since Oct 07. Been doing CF for almost 2 years now...getting my Level 1 Cert in a week. I've got about 2-3 regulars training with me with 3 or 4 others just getting into it. We workout primarily at the North Side Fitness center at 1500. We stick to the main website's WOD's so some of our workouts are on the weekends. I'm also putting together a garage gym...having trouble finding bumper plates, floor matting, etc., here in Germany. And of course buying it on the economy is quite expensive.

The North Side gym manager supports CF 100% and is helping me to build a "CF friendly" area in the gym. If you're interested in joining us, you're more than welcome! Here's my contact info:

Home: 06371-466-539
Mobile: 017-567-04344
Work: 480-4886 (DSN)

CF is really catching on fire over here...hope to hear from you!

What about Stuttgart?

Glad to hear stuff is happening in Ramstein. But, what about Stuttgart? I'm definitely a baby Crossfitter and could use some experienced oversight.

Re: CF around Ramstein, Germany

Hey Leah! Glad to hear you're into CrossFit - yet another wise and brave soul!

I know Stuggart is a good 2 hours away from Ramstein, but if you're ever in the area, look me up and we'll do a WOD together. I'm sure you're familiar with the CF website, but if you have any additional questions, just let me know - I'd be happy to help.

I'm actually in California right now as I'm writing this...day 1 of the Level 1 Cert down. And to think after 2 years of CrossFittin' I knew what intensity was - we got punished! On to day 2...I'm loving it! Take care...

Brian

Re: CF around Ramstein, Germany

Are you still stationed at Spangdahlem and if your are, are there any MMA gyms?

Re: CF around Ramstein, Germany

Hey all, just got to ramstein a few months ago and I've decided to dedicate myself to CF. I'm completely new to this stuff and I'm in decent shape (probably will be proven otherwise).

Brian, are you still in the area? I'd like to join you guys for a session at some point and get my *** kicked.

Anyone else in the Ramstein/Kaiserslautern area doin CF? If so, where at?

- Matt

Re: CF around Ramstein, Germany

Hey Matt...yup I'm still in the area! I'm a CrossFit Level I certified trainer and I hold the WOD's at the North Side Fitness Center on Ramstein AB at 1500 during the week and 1130 on the weekends. We follow the main website's WODs and I send out an e-mail pretty much everyday to keep our crew up to speed on what's happening.

I've already been approved to be an official CrossFit affiliate...just waiting back on CF HQ to work out some License Agreement details. Once that's done...we'll have the website up and running. It will be: www.crossfitramstein.com

I'll add you to my e-mail distro list...hope to see you soon for a WOD!

Brian
