I went over to CF St. Louis and got a make up pic from early in my travels and then headed over to CF St. Charles (217) in St Charles, MO to check them out. No I hate giving bad reviews and maybe I caught them on an off day, but I wasn't thrilled. There was no actually trainer, just a guy who was in charge that night. Movements weren't explained and there were way too many people in such a small space. I worked with 2 guys during the skill set of 2reps for 7 rds of strict presses so they could get there form down, but no one else seemed interested in helping anyone. People asked me a few times if they were doing it right. I did the lifts 75, 95, 115, 125, 145, 165, & 175. I stayed with my partners and didn't go but one round past their capacity. As for the WOD it was chaos! 400m run, followed by a bunch of 15 rep exercise for 2 rounds. I've never felt unsafe to do a workout until now. People were dropping bars without covering them while people were of the ground doing burpees. The biggest thing that honestly stood out was when a woman said she was a trainer there, made a guy move from finishing his double unders cuz he was in her way. All she had to do was use the other side of the bar and there would have been enough room. I hope this was just a one time thing and I hope they are usually better but it wasn't worth my drive. Sorry
I hung out at TNT for another day, taught an intro, taught a regular class, and even fixed a few things around the box. I even got in a "Pregnant WOD" as we called it. 30m EMOM of 3 jumping pull ups, 6 bar push ups, and 9 air squats. It was supposed to be "Chelsea" but the open was the next day and I didn't want to tear just in case there was pull ups.... (Buck Furpees!)All in all the TNT was a great time with a great family atmosphere. I can't wait til I go back and visit a few more boxes in the area and see my friends again. You were awesome TNT and I'm super grateful.
Stong and I... I bought him that onezy before he was born!
