See You Tomorrow!

Lounge


The humble beginnings of our community area.  Bookshelf, coffee table and much more coming soon!

CFSBK Strength Cycle
We all want to get stronger. That's because we implicitly understand that building strength is the foundation for increasing overall physical capacity. It has been proven again and again that lifting heavy primes our bodies to be more effective and efficient at metabolic conditioning workouts.  Strength is the only mode of training that supports everything else we do in the gym and in life. Plus it's pretty badass.

We are offering an 8 week, 24 session program that will involve the following:
* Small group training designed to increase your competency with the lifts
* Consistent and repeated exposure to the powerlifts along a linear progression of weight
* Short and intense complementary conditioning workouts
* Group discussions on lifting topics including: planning warm-ups, the mental aspect of lifting, and elements of the adaptive response to strength training
*New PRs

Schedule
Mondays & Wednesdays at 7PM, Friday at 6:30PM starting on February 15th

Class Size
Space is limited to 4 participants

Class Length
One hour and thirty minutes

Cost
$600 ($300 per month / $25 per class)

To register or for more information, please email Jeremy(AT)CrossFitSouthBrooklyn.com

Join us on Sunday!

Everyone is invited over for a workout and some socializing this Sunday from 10a-12p at our new location! You don't have to show up at 10am exactly as we plan to keep it casual and run a couple heats of the workout as people arrive. Feel free to bring friends and family!
Also, Ian from Again Faster will be there shooting footage of our new home.  Very Cool.

Rower

We found this Model A Concept 2 Rower on the side of the street in Park Slope.  It needs a new monitor, handle and a good cleaning, otherwise it's totally functional. Thank you, Trash Gods!

Scale

This medical scale was found on Craigslist a couple days ago.  It's much more accurate than our previous digital scale.

Rowers

The final coat of paint is being applied on Friday morning.  Once it's done we can start to move some of our stuff into the community area.

Trap Bar
Fox try's out the new Trap Bar. Thanks, Alec and Deb!

Happy Belated Birthday, Juliana A!
