If you're feeling a little wiped from yesterday's Filthy, focus on dialing in your clean technique.



We're proud to FINALLY announce our next General Foundation's Cycle!  Starting in August all athletes interested in training at CFSBK will have to either take a General Foundations cycle, Private Foundations cycle or the equivalent in Personal Training. This filtration method will ensure that everyone who walks into a group class has had qualified training on all the movements and will not require intensive personal attention.  We listened to your feedback and expanded the class to 2 days a week for 4 weeks and increased the required readings and homework assignments.

There will be an early bird special of 200$ for the next cycle if you register before August 7th.  Once the early registration period ends the cost will increase to 240$

Foundations Cycle 5 will meet Thursdays at 8pm and Sundays at 1pm on the following dates:
8/21, 8/24, 8/28, 8/31, 9/4, 9/7, 9/11, 9/14

Please email David to confirm your spot today!

Happy Birthday to Michele, one of the SBK "originals"!

Starting August 1 there will be no more first time drop-ins allowed to Group or Beginner classes. We will designate a specific time for new athletes to come and get a taste of our program. After 2 comped classes all new athletes interested in training at CrossFit South Brooklyn must either complete a cycle of Foundations or sign up for private lessons. After a new athlete completes Foundations they must go to "On-Ramp" classes (new name for Beginner's classes) before they can be cleared by a coach for the Advanced Group Classes.

We're still waiting on some paperwork to go through but hopefully within 2 months we will be using MindBody in order to manage members and payments.  With MindBody everyone will be able to purchase sessions from the comfort of their own home or sign up for the new monthly packages we'll roll out in August.

A Thursday Group class will also be launched at the beginning of August.

Is anyone interested in a POSE concentration cycle? We're just starting to have conversations about putting this together and wanted to see how much interest there was in it.
