CFSBK is approaching its 1 year anniversary.

We've come a long way in the time we've been around and I'm looking forward to what the future holds for our affiliate. I've been so fortunate to work with such an incredible group of people and I just wanted to thank everyone for all of your support of the program and CrossFit in general. I'm currently in the process of quitting my job so that I can make this a full-time gym and better provide for all our athletes. Expect major improvements in member services over the next few months.

What would you like to see in the following year at CFSBK?

squat in which the crease of the hip passes below the height of the
kneecap. The finish position is with the arms, hips and knees fully
extended, arms overhead, with at least a portion of the ear visible in
front of the arm. Dropping the barbell is acceptable.

CrossFit Games!


Fish in Aromas

As you all know the CrossFit Games are this weekend and our own Jeremy Fisher will be competing for top CrossFitter. Jeremy is a phenomenal example of what consistency, intensity, sound nutrition and a positive mentality can have on performance.

In a show of solidarity we will be combining Saturday's Group and Beginner classes and giving everyone the option of doing all three competition WODS within the 2.5-3 hour time frame. Regulation standards will be adhered to strictly and the scoring system will be the same as at the games.  Although he's across the country his South Brooklyn Crew will be with him in spirit suffering through these workouts and cheering him on. This one is for Jeremy, guys.



Any words of encouragement for Jeremy at the games?



Today's WOD is in honor of Coach Jacinto's 69th Birthday.  Apparently he wants nothing more than to inflict a great deal of pain onto the South Brooklyn crew.  Let's see what everyone is made of.

For Time:

Run 620 meters

69 Squats

69 Push-ups

69 Pull-ups or Jumping Pull-Ups

69 Wall Ball Shots

69 Kettlebell Swings

69 Deadlifts 95lbs/65lbs

Run 620 meters

Post time to comments.


69 Years Fit.
