Unparalleled in his ability to light up a room and make people smile, Jack is an invaluable part of our team.  He hopes to grow up and be like his hero, Jacinto.

Having a workout partner is a great way to keep yourself on track.  Especially if you're new, teaming up with someone encourages accountability and makes coming to class even more fun.  Don't be shy!

More of team South Brooklyn (and CF Queens) getting ready for the North East Qualifier. 

Charmel, Brandy and Juliana will be amping up the intensity as the competition slowly approaches.  I'm hoping we can get a whole mess of people from SBK to come up and support them at the Qualifier in Albany. Who's in??

Good luck at the Dirty South Qualifiers, Zeke!

Zeke from CF East Decatur spent three days training with us while on vacation in NYC.   Training outside of your normal surroundings and with a different group of athletes can be an enriching experience.
One of the qualitative benefits of CrossFit is developing the ability to regularly go outside your own comfort zone.  Visiting other affiliates and signing up for local competitions is a great way to take that one step further and see how you stack up in an unfamiliar environment.  Chances are, you'll work a little harder and meet some great people.
