Are there any Crossfit style workouts on the playa?

Post by bjames » Sun Aug 02, 2015 4:12 pm

Hi,

This is my second year at Burning Man and I was wondering if there are any groups that meet for Crossfit style workouts. Does anyone know of a group or have any interest in starting one? I could probably bring a couple kettlebells.

Thanks,
Jim

I spend a lot of my day biking and doing 12/16/22oz curls as necessary... does that count? In all seriousness, I haven't seen a specific crossfit camp, but there is an ultra marathon every year, so it probably exists. I have seen people with TRX straps on various things, but I have also seen people try to swing around on them (spoiler alert, it ended badly).

Well, there's the pink gym at comfort and joy and there's also the ultramarathon if you really want to go balls to walls.

Seems like every year there's a crossfit / WOD question. Pink Gym has everything you'd need to get a session in. I don't believe they organize official WOD's but you can get creative with their equipment. They have chin up bars, various free weights, etc... there are potential box jumps everywhere you look. If you want it, there are options all around.

As mentioned by others, the ultra marathon is where it's at. Wednesday, 5am at Pink Lightning. Do it.

I believe that Settle This Like Men will be offering Tabata workouts in the mornings. 7;15 and b. Not sure on the time, so come on by. We'll have a white board up.

Thanks all for the replies.

The Tabata workout is exactly what I was looking for but the Pink Gym sounds cool too. I'll be checking both out this year. Thanks for all the feedback. I hope the post replies help others that are looking too.

Was looking for something similar to crossfit, but happy to do something that fits the playa.
