Johnnie & Crew,
My name is Kenneth, I am 27 years old, and I currently live in Phoenix, AZ. I have been working out for seven+ years not including my team sports in college and high school. I have recently become addicted to CrossFit Football but had a question pertaining to finding the right gym for the program. Ironically I can find plenty of gyms here in Phoenix, however, I am having a very difficult time finding a gym that works for CrossFit football. It just seems impossible to do it in your regular “globo gym.” I am currently a member of 24 Hour Fitness and it just does not work. It is very difficult to do the DWODs and sometimes even the SWODs because the gym is not set up to accommodate this real kind of work out. People do curls on squat racks, talk to their buddies for 45 minutes while occupying the bench press, you cant drop any weights, rush hour is a joke, and the list goes on and on.
There are plenty of CrossFit gyms in the area of course, however, from what I understand you have to sign up for group classes and one on one instruction. I have about seven years of work out experience under my belt so I do not really need any instructions and generally have a tough schedule to make any kind of group sessions. Being that the CrossFit gyms seem to be the only type of gyms that can accommodate a CrossFit football workout I was wondering what solutions you would suggest for my current dilemma. Can I join a CrossFit gym and use it whenever I like for CrossFit Football? I would really like to join a CrossFit gym and pay my monthly fees towards a gym and program that I truly believe in, but I do not wish for group workouts or need to be trained on the movements. Please let me know if there are any suggestions you may have. I am also going to start calling the CrossFit gyms myself in the area to see what they may suggest. Worst-case scenario I will build my own gym if necessary. I just thought I would get your official input first. I really appreciate your help and hope to hear back from you.
*The pix about is from Elite S&C in Tampa, FL. They are friends of Raphael Ruiz, and were nice enough to let us train when we were in town. They tend to dress a bit odd, were extremely strong and have an excellent array of pix on their FB page. Thanks.
This isn’t the first time I have received an email like this. Ironically, just yesterday, I had a guy come visit me at my gym in Newport Beach, inquiring about the same thing. He lives out in the “909,” wants to train heavy and can’t find any spots that will accommodate him. He is willing to drive the 30-40 miles to find a place that help him get bigger and stronger. I told him we would be glad to have him.
Short of having you move to Newport Beach, the only way I know how to help you find a place to train is to post this up and ask for people to submit gyms around the USA, Canada and world that are doing power athlete/CFFB training.
Lets make it simpler, how about gyms that will let you follow a program of heavy weight lifting, sprinting and smart metabolic conditioning. I know of several excellent coaches and gyms around the world that are doing great work.
Lastly, the gyms submitted do not have to be a CrossFit facility.
I will list them on a page and post a link to it, so people can find a gym. And an update, the new website will list a directory of every coach that has attended a CrossFit Football seminar, so that will be a good resource once the site launches.
Lets see what we get.
My wife and I train at Ironsport Gym outside of Philly. Has everything you could ever dream of (two olympic platforms w/ bumpers and oly bars, deadlifting platform, prowler, sledgehammer, heavy tires, lots and lots of iron plates, atlas stones… and tons more) and the owner is a great, great guy. Former strongman/highland games competitor who lets you do whatever you want as long as you have fun and don’t kill anyone. Truly one-of-a-kind place Here’s a link to the site (SFW): http://www.ironsport.com/
Be glad there are squat racks in the US. Squat racks are a stinguished species here in Spain…
Yes, I know Iron Sports on the Chester Pike. I know Steve as my friends, RC and Doug Brezinski, used to train there. I got all my tattoo work done at Tattoo’s by RC in Folsom when I played for the eagles. I know that part of Philly well.
Al Thompson, a sports writer in Philly, used to talk about Steve and Iron Sports quite often.
Thanks for suggesting Steve’s gym.
Anybody training in Northern VA reading this, let me know of any suggestions on where to train. At a ‘Lifetime’ gym now and am treated like some kind of zoo animal when I load the bar over 400 lbs. Can’t complain much though, this place at least has an oly platform, bars, and plates.
I’m sick of the globo gym where at 500 lb over weight %^&* on the elliptical and watching tv can complain about my deadlift being too loud.
Some crossfit gyms have an “open gym” format, where you can go there and do whatever you want during certain hours.
It’s a very accommodating community, so I’m sure talking to one of the owners/trainers would probably get you what you want or suggestions for where to go.
But, yeah, if their only suggestion is one-on-one classes, it may be more cost effective to just invest in your own gym. (KBs, barbells, plates, and dbs would be a decent start)
Ed’s Gym, in Colorado Springs, supports what Kenneth is looking for. We are a strength and conditioning facility working with athletes and individuals that have the desire and will to train hard.
I will say that we train nearly all our clients in small group programs. An individual really has to prove their understanding and skill to train on their own. I’ve just met too many people who think they don’t need any coaching, and then I watch them train and their movement/technique is just terrible. I also find most people tend to do better training with other people, as opposed to to on their own.
By the way…John, that is awesome that you trained at Elite S/C (AKA, The Man Cave). Those are my boys MANdler and Julius! I met them at Zach Even-Esh’s “How To Kick Ass” seminar in NJ last year. They are some of the strongest, funniest and craziest dudes I know.
We have a dedicated crew following CFFB at Crossfit Smyrna, which is just outside of Atlanta, GA. The rest of the gym follows mainpage, but the 0wner lets us do our own thing, and pretty much has everything you need to follow cffb (including sleds and prowlers).
John – any plans for an Atlanta CFFB cert? Thanks for all of your hard work and the awesome programming. Our crew is setting pr’s non stop!
Guerilla Fitness CrossFit Montclair/Morristown. I would suggest this wonderful place for lots of smart training. I learned about training from Gregg and his coaches they are the reason I opened my gym CrossFit Warwick.
^PD: I have been to Iron Sport before and it is a great place to train with friendly owners. The place is well stocked, perfect for people who like to pick things up and put them down.
For those in the Nor Cal region “Santa Cruz Strength” is a great gym to train. The gym has equipment for Olympic Weightlifting, Power lifting, and x-fit type metabolic conditioning. The coaches there are nice, smart, and experienced people, who work with clients to develop custom programming tailored to their needs/aspirations.
Hey David Where abouts in VA are you?
When I was a trainer at CrossFit St.Pete in St. Petersburg, FL I was doing the CFFB program for a couple years. Currently Im taking a hiatus from training and working out at home, but the gym runs an open gym model, ie no classes, with the only requirement being an on-ramp style start-up program,which you can test out of if you are proficient enough. After that, they will work with you on which program you want to follow, be it CFFB or a custom S&C program.
Check em out
David, if you are in the Alexandria, VA area stop by Outlaw CrossFit. The website is http://www.outlawcrossfit.com. If you stop by, ask for Rudy. He is the owner. Maybe it will fit your needs. BTW, no one will look at you funny if you load a bar with 400+. Pretty common thing to see there.
CrossFit Bay Area/ Team Texas Weightlifting would be happy to have anyone in this situation.
We welcome anyone that is looking to lift heavy wts!!!
We are in Webster Tx, thats about 30 min SE of Houston, TX.
Anybody in the east end of the GTA and Durham, Warrior1 Training welcomes the heavy lifters, screamers, dumpers and freaks, chicks and dudes alike, we are a weird family. PS- the directory is a great idea John.
Any suggestions for gyms in NY for doing crossfit football? Crossfit South Brooklyn is super accommodating, but its a bit of a trek for me?
also, John, thank you for your thoughtful help
For anyone training around Pittsburgh I do CFFB out of a gym called BodyXChange Fitness in the South Side. Its not a huge gym but definitely has all the necessities to do CFFB and for the most part it’s not overly crowded. As well as that, they could really care less about slamming stuff around and have all of the equipment, except for a rowing machine, necessary for the program. Hope that helps anyone who may be looking for a gym in the area.
Greyskull. Philly, PA. I wish I trained there…(sigh)
Washington D.C.: Balance Gym Kalorama.
Gym has a great set up of 4 platforms on the side line of a BBall court, so transitioning from weights to sprints, bear crawls, or anything really, is easy. Three squat cages and more than enough weights to have everyone pulling 400+ pounds at once. I run CrossFit Dupont classes here, so I outfit and buy equipment tailored for CFFB training and it’s for everyone’s use. We have plenty of people that do their own training here, we don’t force people into classes and space is never an issue. I would love to have more CFFBallers in here so we can compete in the workouts. Cheers.
HIT CrossFit in the Greenville, SC area welcomes all those that want to lift heavy stuff. We program very similar to CFFB and have an open gum format where you can do your own thing from 4pm til close. We will give you an assessment to make sure you know what the check you’re doing before we cut you lose, though!
Arenal Fitness in Baltimore has a general membership that gives you 24/7 access for only $40/month. Can’t be beat and they have everything you need to do CFFB. Great owners too! They do run some mainsite type classes, but are very accommodating to us.
My name is Shane and I, along with Jason Fine, own CrossFit Tempest in Scottsdale, AZ. We do not have open gym hours daily, but do a few days per week for approved members. We feel like this is a great way to allow our members the opportunity to do their own thing, as a supplement to our group classes. We always welcome experienced CrossFitters!
Hope that helps!
I have a shitton of respect for strength athletes.
I own a CrossFit Affiliate. We do all class formats, but under special circumstances I will allow people to do their own thing and coach them anyway I can for no additional cost. I have a D1 Sprinter that is here for the summer and winter break that I help any way I can. I’ve also had a competitive olympic weightlifter come through for a month.
I would hope there are other gyms that understand that a “CrossFit” program is not best for all athletes and as a S&C Coach it is your duty to make sure athletes have the resources available to train.
I’ll gladly add my gym to John’s list.
I had been recently dealing with the exact same problem.
In the Dallas/ Fort worth area there’s a chain of gyms called “Metroflex Gym”. They’re all about bodybuilding, which I’m not. HOWEVER, they have awesome racks, dumbbells up to like 220, bumpers, GHD, huge tires, atlas stones, and prowlers!
And although their goals are different (yes they look weird), the bodybuilders train hard. Its an intense atmosphere.
So yeah, think outside the “box”. I don’t need to pay $150 a month to find out the “wod” is a 5k, and heavy lifting only happens once a week, and its not even a squat. (Metroflex is $30/mo.)
And John, you are one of the biggest influences on my training, but there CF gyms in my area with the CF Football “certified” coaches that fit the above description. I would go to CF balboa in a heartbeat, but I dunno, just sayin…
If you can’t get to a good gym, all you really need is a power rack, weights dumbbells, and a prowler. Don’t be the retard that goes and spends all they’re money on kettlebells. They’re not that cool.
My husband and I coach at Crossfit Soco (www.crossfitsoco.com) in Colorado Springs. We are both CFFB certified and love the programming. In the past, our gym hosted the CF Oly Lifting cert. We are also hosting the CF Strongman cert in November, so many of our coaches will have that to pull from. Natalie Burgner offers an Oly lifting skills and drills class at our gym. We have the experience to meet a wide variety of needs.
I own and operate Wasatch Crossfit. We have 3 platform, plenty of steel, a reverse-hyper, a sled, plus a ton more good shit for getting strong. If you’ve demonstrated proficiency you can come in any time we’re open and do CFFB, Oly, or any other strength-biased program.
Anyone looking for a gym like this in the 818 (more specifically in or close to Burbank, CA), give me shout. We’re a strength-biased home box with full offerings and we’re glad to allow advanced athletes the opportunity to do their own programming and train with us. We offer open gym in the morning or evenings. Can’t guarantee it will work for everyone but contact me to discuss further. Keep up the great work John!
I have to Echo Ed’s comment. 9 out of 10 times is a conservative estimate of the number of people who tell us they know what they are doing mechanically and whom I wouldn’t trust to clean 135 after watching them. Similarly, if you’ve never trained with a group of like-minded individuals at your level or higher, I wonder if you have another gear.
Rare is the athlete who can push themselves as hard as they can be pushed in the right type of team and competitive environment. If you’ve only trained at 24 hour fitness, chances are that the physical facility doesn’t even allow you to push your physical limits, much less your mental limits.
At Cactus CrossFit, we’re not interested in having a collection of lone rangers doing their own thing in each corner. We want to develop a team, a community of like-minded individuals who are dedicated to pushing their limits in all areas and want to be coached to do so.
That being said, I train CFFB at 0700 MTH and 1000 F. If you can beat my score in person on 9/19’s DWOD, I’ll work with you.
Located in Old Town Scottsdale. http://www.cactuscrossfit.com
Those guys at Elite S&C are weird
I played football at CAL a while back and my strength coach, John Krazinski, recently opened an absolutely awesome gym in Glendale, AZ. He is an amazing coach and his new gym has everything you would need for the type of training you’re interested in. You should definitely check it out at theanvilathletics.com.
My names Justin and I help out at Hammer CrossFit in Peoria (85th Ave. and Bell Rd.) We do not have classes and the gym is open in the morning from 530am-10am and 4pm-8pm. Feel free to drop in or give us a call if you need a place to train. hammercrossfit.com
Garagegym my cure your problem, did for me….you all are welcome to stop in and drop some bumps.
We run a full on CFFB program out of CrossFit BWI called CrossFit BWI Strength if you want to check us out on Facebook. We have a few CFFB certified coaches, power racks, oly platforms, and all the strongman equipment you could ask for (prowlers, log presses, atlas stones, yokes, farmers carry, axels, battling ropes, etc.)
Probably a little too far for you David from the Northern VA area, but we are right in the BWI airport loop. Feel free to stop in.
Core Fitness Obsession in VA Beach is a great gym. They offer crossfit style classes, and have open gym all day every day. There are always people doing some heavy work.
I have followed CF Football there in the past and the gym was very supportive of it.
Mentor, OH (zip- 44060)
Train by myself in my garage, but would love to have some partners! And it’s cheap too! Donations only and all donations go toward more equipment.
For those in Northern Virginia, CrossFit Trident in Alexandria, VA has a huge facility that is well-stocked with platforms, bars and weights, full of strong coaches (if you need them), and a lot of space to move around.
For David in NOVA, there is this relatively new and sort of hidden place in Ashburn off Route 7 called Xfit24 (stupid name, great facility) that bought out the old Gold’s Gym there. They’ve added 2 Olympic platforms, plenty of bumper plates. It’s a 24 hour place, and there is a small group of people doing powerlifting. It might be hard to transition between bars and sprints, but it’s doable since it’s usually pretty empty.
Also, Lifetime fitness at their Fairfax location has some bumper plates, though it’s a bit pricey, and can get crowded.
Heavy Metal Strength and Conditioning / CrossFit Valencia (www.heavymetalsc.com) outside of Los Angeles runs a CrossFit Football style program with several athletes, and has an open gym in the middle of the day. Has everything you need to do CFFB work-outs.
Grapevine CrossFit in Grapevine, TX! They have awesome strength bias programming, and sometimes do CFFB wods, but they also have convenient open gym hours-I attend open gym and follow CFFB programming.
Mercy Therapy and Fitness in Devils Lake, ND can occomadate CrossFit and CFFB workouts.
I co-own CrossFit Asylum (soon to be CrossFit Boise) located in Boise, ID and recently became CFFB certified.
We regularly adjust workouts for whatever our client’s goals are. On numerous occasions we have accommodated our “Power Athletes” by increasing weight and working more speed and agility. We are fully equipped to dish out anything a SWOD CrossFitter is looking for.
Chris at CF Underworld was really cool about letting me do my own thing (with one or two other guys that I sort of led). CF Deep Ellum does some big strength work and produces the best Oly lifters in the area bar none. We moved our trade desk up North and I have started going to a powerlifting and strongman gym called Authentic Strength. I do a hybrid of John’s programming with a strongman twist.
Ben, I’ll be sure to checkout Grapevine at some point.
I’m excited for the cert in a few weeks @ CFCD.
Check out the Desert Strength Gym in Phoenix, it’s run by LW Pro Strongman Scott Porter:
Here’s their YouTube page:
They’ve got all the weights you could ever need plus strongman gear to boot. Check them out and see if they can help you!

We regularly adjust workouts for whatever our client’s goals are. On numerous occasions we have accommodated our “Power Athletes” by increasing weight and incorporating more speed and agility. We are fully equipped to dish out anything a SWOD CrossFitter is looking for.
CrossFit of Naperville hosted the CrossFit Football cert in the Midwest this last spring.
We have 5 trainers Certified in CrossFit Football. One of which will be leaving us to work for John Welbourn running CrossFit Balboa in Newport Beach CA.
There is another CrossFit Football certification coming back in November and I am hoping to get the rest of CrossFit of Naperville trainers certified in CrossFit Football.
We also have a female trainer certified if any women out there feel more comfortable training with a woman. (As for the guys, you could learn a thing or two about lifting from her too!)
Give us a call or email us if you are interested: Cell: 630-452-5148 email: email@example.com
Ask for Neil
For anyone in and around Ottawa, ON, Canada – Nepean YMCA is a great gym. 5 squat cages with platforms outside the cage, 3 oly platforms, bumpers, multiple oly and powerlifting bars, trap bar, fat bar, safety squat bar, boards, boxes, chains, logs, prowler, DBs up to 120#, GHD, farmers walk bars, C2, etc.
There’s a great powerlifting/oly community there, as well as some level-headed CF-ers, and a few Olympic hopefuls (weightlifting, bobsleigh).
It’s fully equipped and I’ve never encountered a problem SWODing or DWODing.
Go check out Crossfit Southwest in Tempe. Ken Urakawa runs the place and the man KNOWS his stuff! No frills, great community, great athletes from a variety of disciplines. They do CrossFit, Oly lifting, and open gym. http://www.crossfitsouthwest.com **On a side note, a guy who comes in and says he doesn’t need any training on movement is usually full of himself. Just saying…
I recommend Crossfit Excel in Manteca CA. Several of the trainers are CFFB certified and they generally follow a similar template. They also have a large facility, lots of equipment, reasonable pricing, and the Open Gym format on Thursdays and Saturdays. I’ve been a member for almost two years and think they have some of the best trainers around. They have several championship athletes in O-lifting and Power Lifting as well as Master’s division CF champs.
Anyone have recommendations for Seattle? Might be moving there in the near future. Thanks.
I dont know what happened with my previous comment but….
CrossFit St.Pete runs an open Gym format and I’ve been doing my CFFB workouts there for a couple years.
Southeast valley (Phoenix area) – Thats the thing I love about CFFB – $500 on craigslist and half of my garage space supplied everything I need for CFFB. Roberts tire on the 202 south and power road gives aways old truck tires with damaged sidewalls… I picked up a monster for no charge. Nice cage off craigslist for $100, cheap kettlebells, iron for free, bumpers and rings from rouge. Nice to just walk outside and have everything I need, no gym fees or gym rats. Let me know If you’re ever in the queen creek area, my garage is always open to other CFFBers.
There are a couple crossfit location here in Lincoln Nebraksa.
MAS Lifestyle is a affiliate with some very good coaches and they are pretty much willing to help you with whatever you need. On staff is a professional Xterra athlete and a former college football player, both have lots of experience with olympic lifts. They are a couple friends of mine and I train over there occasionally just to change thing up and have them critique my technique.
Also, we have Crossfit Lincoln, who has been around longer, but I am not sure how willing they are to just let people do their own thing. I do know for a fact that they have open gym hours though. They have about five coaches who have all been around for a while.
You might find what you’re looking for at Crossfit Southwest in North Tempe. It’s the oldest Crossfit gym in Arizona and known for being heavy on strength elements and CFFB-type training. The owner there, Ken, loves the stuff and has a crew that only does that type of work. Good luck.
I am the head coach at Crossfit South Bend in Northern Indiana. There is a group of us that includes myself, ABell, and some other that do the CFFB WOD every day around 2:00 pm. We are always happy to have people come in do it with us. Or we do allow our members/drop ins to do what they want during our normal class times as long as it does not interfere with the class. If any one is in the area don’t be afraid to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I co-own South Baltimore CrossFit, and we’re definitely CF Football friendly. While our main focus is the CrossFit program, we have many other people on their own programs, including a national champion powerlifter, olympic lifters, rowers, rugby, and Aussie rules players. Did I mention we have 25yds of artificial turf for prowler pushin?
Iron Sport is a great place, and Steve P. is a great guy. Good to see a lot of MD, VA, DC, PA gyms represented here.
Try talking to some of the crossfit affiliates. Generally their programs are set up with group sessions in order to introduce newbies or the un-initiated to dynamic movements that would otherwise intimidate them from trying or worse, injure them.
I’m a soldier who does a lot of traveling and have visited a number of affiliates throughout the world. Typically I find that once you introduce yourself to the owners and let them see you workout, they can recognize elite potential and years upon years of GOOD skills and technique. And they’ll let you workout on your own. Become their friend and some have even given me entry codes to get inside on my own at 4:30am.
Functionality, by definition, implies an inherent distaste for needless regulation, regimentation, or rule following. Most rules that are in place, like group sessions, usually have a reason for being in place. Once you show you can be an exception to that rule, I find most Crossfitters are apt to let you do your own thing.
Was my comment from earlier deleted??
disregard, now it just showed up again… weird
Any info about Mesa, AZ? Getting tried of all the big box gyms.
Thank you guys for all of your suggestions. I can see why Crossfit & Crossfit Football is such a strong community. Way more help than I anticipated receiving, which, is awesome. I will begin looking into my options and follow up with some of your ideas. Thank you all again.
CrossFit StPete in St. Pete, FL is a gym where we very much focus on strength and incorporate it into our own CF programming. We usually have at least two days each week entirely devoted to lifting. Anyone interested in lifting heavy shit and getting strong is more than welcome.
I am head of crossfit at the Athlete Institute in Orangeville, Ontario Canada. Our focus is on CrossFit Football training, with a outdoor sprint track, indoor turf and power athlete equipment. Come check us out.
Quest gym in Duluth, GA. Check them out at http://www.quest_nutrition.com
I own a crossfit gym in St. Petersburg, FL. We have no classes, only open gym where I train people heavy and use my own programming. Members can come in at their liesrure during our regular business hours and we always have knowledgeable trainers present. We have a foundations program that requires you to learn the movements during 1 on 1 training, but you can test out of that in 5 minutes if you know your stuff. Design alternate programs for people with different goals all the time and if someone wanted to do CFFB only that would be fine with me.
I live in scottsdale and found the same problem. All the gyms around here are group only and the programming is mainly conditioning. I built a gym in my 1 car garaage, using only 2nd hand equipment and items found at homedepot. If you find a nice gym around here please let me know. Ill be working out at home until then.
Cannon CrossFit in Houston, TX can accommodate CFFB training. I am the owner and have followed John’s programming on and off since 2009 when I attended a CFFB certification. I believe in the methodology behind the programming its propensity to create strong, explosive athletes. Get in touch with me if you’re interested in training.
As a follow up, thanks for creating this forum John.
CrossFit One World of course….. Anyone visiting the SF Bay Area can get their heavy shit on at our gym anytime! No drop in either =)
CrossFit Amarillo (Texas) runs an open gym format (no class times, no group warmup, AND we still believe in making progress). We love big barbells, we love Starting Strength, and we love some CF Football.
Primitive CrossFit typically runs set classes. We have been known to customize the programming on occasion. As others have stated I don’t want people in every corner doing their own thing. We have most all the equipment to do power athlete training. Sledge hammers, tires, slam balls, sand bags, sled pulls are a regular part of what we do at Primitive.
Drop us an email to set up an appointment,
Rocky Mountain Lifting Club in Denver (www.rmlccolorado.com) has great facilities with everything you could dream of lifting and a very open schedule. During the day, the owners aren’t there but will give you a key code to come in, turn on the lights and do whatever work you need to do. And it’s dirt cheap by CrossFit gym standards.
I’m the head coach at Crossfit Maximus in Lexington, KY and we have everything someone would need for CFFB. Myself and a few others are devoted followers and always welcome people to come throw around the iron with us. Drop in’s usually do the prescribed CF wod, but shoot me an email if you aren’t a dipshit I’ll gladly accomodate your CFFB needs. email@example.com
The Edge in Columbia, SC is very friendly to CFFB style workouts. I am currently the only one there with experience with CFFB, but it’s a work in progress.
The floor-plan is 5000 sqft, 1/3 powerlifting equipment, 2/3 astro-turf (about 25yds wall to wall). There are big and small tires, a sled, a prowler, tons of stretch bands, tons of iron weights, about 300# of bumpers (will purchase more), tons of chains, dumbbells up to 150#, 7-8 KBs up to 108#, 4-5 boxes up to 35”, saucer cones, a few slam/med balls up to 60#, couple monolifts, couple squat racks, couple bench stations, fairly flat parking lot with roughly 80 yard straightaway, couple of PT tables…
It’s a diamond in the rough. Check it out if you’re in town. Ask for Todd (owner) or Clinton.
The National Institute for Fitness and Sport in Indianapolis is a large facility that can handle CFFB. It’s not a Crossfit gym, but it has everything you need to train, including a 233 meter indoor running track and a sprint track.
Is there a CFF friendly gym in New Orleans? Headed there next week for a business trip.
