Brooklyn Beginners

CFSBK will be rolling out our first "CrossFit Foundations" class starting on Sunday, February 10th.  The program will focus on learning the fundamental movements while developing some baseline strength and conditioning.  Each block will consist of 6 classes held on Sundays at 11am.  Students are expected to attend every class and must purchase all 6 sessions within the registration period.  If you're new to CrossFit or just want to refine your technique this would be much more appropriate than jumping into the group classes. 

Establishing a solid foundation is essential for success in CrossFit.  Each class will include movement analysis and practice as well as some general strength and conditioning specific to the lesson. By the end of the 6 week period students will have established the physical competence to enter group classes so that they can gradually amp up the intensity.

Registration Period:  January 28th -  February 7th
Cost: 180$ @ 30$ per class
Class Dates: 2/10, 2/17, 2/24, 3/2, 3/9, 3/23
When: Every Sunday at 11am (classes are 1 hour in length)

Current CFSBK athletes who sign a friend up will receive 1 week of comped classes!

Foundations: Buying Groceries

A little direction goes a long way when buying groceries.  Having a basic plan can ensure that you've stocked up your kitchen so that making balanced meals remains simple and convenient.  When I write up my grocery list I like to partition the list into the subcategories of Proteins, Carbs and Fats. Here is my last receipt broken down as an example.


4 oz Ground beef Patties (Organic, 90% Fat Free) x6
Bonless Chicken Breast (Organic, Free Range) x4
Applegate Farms Kielbasa Sausage x2
Dozen Eggs (Organic, Omega 3, Free Range)
Fage Greek Yogurt x2


Red Delicious Apples x 4
Asparagus Spears
Broccoli x3
Brussel Sprouts
Frozen Mixed Berries

Almonds (Raw)
Almond Butter (.5 Pint)
Mozzarella Cheese

Try it out for yourself and see if your grocery list is as balanced as the meals you intend to make are.
