It would be much appreciated if anyone could either come a little early or stay a little late tonight so that we could move some stuff for the Level 1 Certification this weekend.  Thanks!

SBK will not be holding weekend classes on two occasions this month due to the Certifications we're hosting.  Consider this a great opportunity to either check out a different affiliate or get an outdoor WOD in.  Here are some links to local affiliates for you to check out

CF Queens
CF Staten Island
CF NYC
CF Virtuosity
CF Montclair, Guerrilla Fitness
CF Hoboken
MPower CrossFit

If you're interested in checking out any of these boxes, make sure to call ahead of time to see if they allow drop ins. Otherwise, is anyone interested in organizing a Prospect park 5K or Austere WOD?

Also, if you usually attend weekend classes but can't because of the seminar, please email me so that we can modify your 4 week package to accommodate the change in schedule.
