Gym/crossfit camp?

Postby tevo » Wed Aug 20, 2014 1:33 pm

In previous years I've found a camp with a full set of weights, squat racks, etc but I can't remember who it was. Likewise, I remember a camp a few years back where they did WODs at various times. Again, no memory of who it was. Does anyone know of anyone with a similar setup this year? I searched but can't find anything and I'd like to get at least a couple workouts in during the week. Thanks!

Why don't you build it yourself? Radical self-reliance and all that.

There's the Pink Gym (my buddy won one of their contests last year), but I don't think they do WOD stuff...

Given the difficulties of interpreting interwebs communication I'm not sure if this was intended as sarcasm or not, but I suppose one could say that about every camp or whathaveyou one frequents or uses on the playa. Obviously none of us out there are completely self reliant. When I volunteered helping out burners who got sick or hurt we certainly didn't chastise them for not bringing their own medics--though we did mock some of the sparkleponies who thought we were there forwhenever they wanted to cool down in the AC.

As for a gym--that sort of thing is a pretty resource intensive endeavour. A full gym requires a little more space to bring out than I'm able to devote to it. So I'm hoping there's one out there. If not it's not a critical concern--I can run, do bodyweight squats, and I'll probably bring a kettlebell. That's unfortunately about as self reliant as I can be this burn with respect to a gym.

The Pink gym! Come to think of it--I think that's the one I was in before! Thanks!

eplaya has a long standing tradition of promoting "do-ocrasy" at the burn, often by asking "Why not you?" Think of us as a combination of the LIttle Red Hen and Rosie the Riviter...

I would love to help get a group together to get a good workout in while on the playa. Maybe not everyday, but I want to stay active. We can then push and encourage each other. When I travel I usually find ways to do body weight exercise at cardio speeds.
