Training Facility
« on: May 01, 2013, 02:45:04 PM »

Hello.

So Im curious about any gym type places that would allow someone to do Mountain Athlete/Gym Jones programing in and/or around the boston area.  after a long stint away guiding im back in the area and it seems as though no one has herd of such programs out this way.  After being yelled at at 2 different Globo gyms and basically laughed at for even asking if i could workout at a crossfit box and do my own programing 3 different times, i am at a loss.  Aside from just buying a full set up bumper plates and all AND the people below me dont totally freak out and get me evicted i've got nothing.  Anyone have any ideas?

Sounds awful. I hate doing any kind of regular exercise program. Every once in a while I tell myself I am going to get on a program and I last about a week or two. The stuff I could stick with best are a few exercise Vasya showed me that don't use any equipment, a few little martial arts exercises. I do them occasionally, but not regularly enough to make much difference.
Zuzana has some good regimes on http://www.youtube.com/user/ZuzkaLight and she is nice to watch, but I feel like I am going to die if I try to do a whole one. Most of her routines require very little if any equipment, so if you can find any space where doing burpees wouldn't annoy people you would be golden.

Didn't Gym Jones sprout up from what became crossfit when Twight had a falling out with the other founder of crossfit? Maybe just look for a crossfit gym and a trainer that will customize your program?

Something like that.  Twight and Rob Shall from Mountain Athlete both believe in sport specific training using mesocycles.  Where as crossfit is totally random most/all the time. Gym Jones started basically as an experiment like 10 years ago, was invite only and now has opened up to the public.  MTN Athlete grew from Military Athlete and use to be free...now you have to pay. which is fine. I had to opportunity to train a bit at both places (Jackson Hole and SLC) and what those guys are doing is fucking incredible.  I have tried 7 crossfit boxes at this point.  all have been very unwelcoming when it comes to programming other then things based around CrossfitHQ.  Globo gyms like planet fitness, golds, etc dont have bumper plates, kettle bells, sand bags, ropes to climb, sleds to push etc and dont allow you to do any kind of olympic lifts.

know any crossfit box owners that arent as up tight as the rest?
Anyone frequent climbing gyms???? There has to be more then just yoga

There is a place that's one or two doors down from Boston Rock Gym called Athletic Evolution. They have tons of KB's, bumper plates, several platforms (maybe a half dozen or more), boxes, etc. I don't think you can train on your own though -- so you would either have to join one of their structured adult programs, which probably won't give you exactly what you want, or you would have to sign up with a personal trainer and work out your own program. (These are not trainers like the gumbies at the globo gyms.)

Another possible option is Skill of Strength in Chelmsford. (Maybe too far for you?) I learned KB training from the owner Mike Perry when he used to train out of Athletic Evolution before he opened this gym in Chelmsford. He's a good guy and will definitely listen to you and work a program based on what you want.

Skill of Strength’s clients can take advantage of access to 2,000 square feet of turf as well as a host of free weights, kettlebells, battling ropes, suspension trainers, gymnast rings, speed sleds, slide boards, plyo boxes, olympic lifting equipment and other cutting edge, functional exercise tools.

There are probably a lot more options if you dig around but the problem is none of them are likely cheap.

Edit: give me a couple of days and check back here. I'm going to check with some people I know (from another forum) that do Starting Strength based programs and they run into the same problems at the globo gyms. I think they have a list somewhere of gyms that allow Olympic/power lifting, and I know a few of the guys are from the Boston area so I'll see if they have any ideas.
