Timothy,

Quick update. After doing weigh-ins and then an event put on by Local's Gym in Lynwood, I'd highly recommend them. Even if you end up living outside of Seattle proper, it's a great facility, with only a light sprinkling of the "look at my snatch" logo t-shirt and other koolaid shenanigans.

Jesse Ward is good people, Teh facilty itself is good sized, has lot's of platforms, odd objects, safety squat bars, axles, farmers bars, some small logs, sandbags etc. It's at least three notches above any other crossfit facilty I've seen.

We're essentially a key club gym, so if you're willing to put down a key deposit, stay current with gym dues, and don't mind training alone you could train whenever you want.

Yeah, I'm a part of Sandpoint Gym. I think the key deposit is $100 now, we rent from the city parks department so basically the key deposit is whatever they charge to change the lock.

Make sure you avoid training with Mike Ng. He's been known to make unwanted advances on practically anybody...

Just kidding, Mikey Send me an e-mail and let me know what's up lately. I don't think I have a current address for you.

I got another question un-related... mike ng are you a coach, cause I was looking at some of the rankings from last year on the USAW site, and i remember seeing the name mike ng on the coach list for someone. Thanks again everyone for all the help, this sandpoint place looks good if i can get to where I can do the key deal. im curious to check out the other gyms more north though.

Oh man, this forum must really be going down hill if they're letting you post here Matt!

Timothy, yes I'm a coach, although at this point I'd like to think I'm still more athlete than coach... I work mostly with beginners and athletes from other sports so it's strange that I'm listed as a coach for anyone who is nationally ranked. Maybe a teammate of mine listed me as one of their coaches.

If you're looking for places a bit north of Seattle then I'd have to agree with Dave who suggested Locals Gym. Jesse is a good guy (I went to high school with him) and he has a bunch of fun stuff for Olympic lifters, powerlifters, and strongmen to play with at his place.

Is the Sandpoint Gym still around? Their website http://www.sandpointgym.com/ is dead. I'm looking to get in contact with someone there about possibly joining. Anyone have their contact info?
