CrossFit on Vacation: Arlington Heights, IL

It's nice to find CrossFit Affiliates when traveling. I'm north of Chicago this weekend and found Elite Athletic Development (EAD) in Arlington Heights, IL.

Friday noon was working on strength/form on back squats (3 reps @ 125# for the third set). Then 10 minutes of sit-ups, jumping pull-ups and double-unders (completed 8 + 2/3rds rounds).

Saturday morning was 3 rounds of 30 wall balls (16#) and 30 hang squat snatch (35#). Exhausted (20:31).

Nice group of folks.

They have a strict on-time policy; the whole group does 5 burpees for every minute someone is late. Everyone goes through the posted dynamic warm-up before the trainer starts working with us. There was no PVC pipe range of motion work these two days. It's been interesting seeing how other places CrossFit. But it's tough when the trainer doesn't know your strengths/weaknesses. I miss my trainers and workout buddies back home.
