Ken Haller's Bio
Ken was a nationally competitive gymnast in Newton, MA and at the University of Michigan. After graduating, Ken coached for eight years at Capital Gymnastics in Northern Virginia where he coached regional and national champions. His students have gone on to be NCAA champions and members of Cirque du Soliel. In searching for an activity to replace gymnastics, Ken filled the void with rock climbing and yoga for the past ten years and recently found CrossFit to round out his training.

Hi all. I'm hoping to tap that talents of our SBK community...

My friend's wife is starting a small business and is looking for someone to design a website. She and her business partner are looking for something simple, so this wouldn't be a big project (although, admittedly, I don't know how hard it is to set up a website). If you have web design skills (and the capacity to take on another project), please email me at katie dot mohrhauser at gmail and I will get you in touch with them. Thank you!!

Oh, and CONGRATULATIONS to the Nofi family!

The Wild Things cried, "Please don't go. We'll eat you up. We love you so."

RIP Maurice Sendak

congrulations on the new bambino! That's good stuff right there!

Parents,

Please feel free to hit me up in the gym on this, SFX Youth Sports League. 100% volunteer, I am very involved, we'd love to get kids involved

Spring (and Summer) baseball. tee ball starts at 4, remember for next year, saturdays
Soccer - I believe starts at 4 as well, in the fall on Sat ams
Golf - trying to organize for this fall, would like kids to be a bit older, call it 8 or 9.
There is football as well for older kids

We are always looking for volunteers, it's probably the most rewarding thing that I have ever done.

Go Crossfit Parents!

oh and Apollo Creed, you're mine!

8 lbs 12 ounces- jesus mary and joseph. congrats to the proud parents!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In case you missed it, there was an op-ed in the NYTimes about the issue of black women and weight. It has spawned quite a large discussion from folks across the spectrum. This is a really thorny and interesting issue - so much going on just below the surface (health, ideas of attractiveness, race, class, on and on.) If you're interested:

Anybody up for a soccer team? Me and some friends are putting together a coed team to play in a league over on the brooklyn tech field starting in June. Pretty casual team, all skill levels fine. Hit me up thatevansguy at gmail.

CONGRATS Nofis!

Two beautiful babies (almost) back-to-back! Congrats to all the proud parents--enjoy the adventure.

I, too, love Maurice Sendak so. I'm sad he's gone. "Where the Wild Things Are" is actually a beautiful poem of a sort. And then those drawings-amazing! Thanks for the heads-up about the Terry Gross interview, David. I will definitely check it out.

That NYT article contradicts every bit of bro-science I've ever read on the interwebz.

Strength cyclers, I'm eating a pastured pork chop as big as my head, a huge sweet potato, and a pile of kale. I hope and trust you have done something similar tonight.

May 8, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermichele

In need of total results, y'all!
