Default crossfit in cville?

Not sure if this is the right forum, but do you guys know if there are any crossfit groups in the Charlottesville/UVa area?

I'm trying to get my mom started on crossfit/pmenu style fitness. She's a doctor at UVa and has gotten pretty out of shape over the years... she was super athletic in high school but has some sort of chronic heel pain (I can't recall the exact details) that prevents her from running, etc. Basically she'd be starting from the bottom.

Suggestions? I'll be home for Thanksgiving, so I can introduce her to some of the basic movements, but she doesn't have access to any equipment, etc., and knows nothing whatsoever about strength training.

Left side scroll down 'til you find your state.


Heel pain either sounds something like plantar fasciitis or poor running technique a la heel-toe.

Might wanna have that checked out, heh heh.

Yeah, there are a few in VA but none in Charlottesville. It'd have to be pretty close by given her + my siblings' schedules.
