CrossFit Fort Meade Maryland

This will be a new military installation affiliate available as a non-profitfor service members and dependents on the main side of base, not the campus.

CrossFit Fort Meade aims to bring the CrossFit methods to servicemembers based of Fort George G. Meade, Maryland with a goal of increasing the fitness of the individuals, thereby increasing the capabilities of their military units.

At the start I will offer a few elements classes and group training which can be reserved by miltary and DoD units from across the base.

No permenant location yet, all WODs will be IVO Gaffney or DINFOS in the beginning. I have applied and been tentatively accepted as an affiliate to represent the base so if to all of you other CrossFitters scattered across the post, please add to the thread and come join up!

Excellent. My wife and I are both CrossFitters so we'll be looking forward to you starting up operations. We have several other unit members who are into it as well.

Re: CrossFit Fort Meade Maryland

Shooting for an early August 'opening' if I can get a facility going that soon. Glad to hear there is interest. Most of the folks I've got lined up are going to take advantage of this for military unit training, for the 'elite' small unit metcon workouts and for beginners teaching elements classes to small groups.

But since the goal is to offer something for everyone on the base community I hope we get enough interest from dependants to offer a daily (I'm thinking either 0600 or noontime) WOD.

Please get in touch if you're interested!

Re: CrossFit Fort Meade Maryland

My reserve unit is stationed up there at the reserve center and we are deploying next fy and I am trying to introduce them to the concepts. Would you mind shooting me your email, maybe we can work something out where we can work with some of them. I am getting my level one cert in August and I am currently training with jerry Hill's CrossFit Old Town in Alexandria. My email is michael.snyder6@us.army.mil. Thanks

Mike

Re: CrossFit Fort Meade Maryland

Sorry I couldn't make the meet and greet but I was wondering if there had been a decision about when the group would regularly meet?
