Over the past five years I (Mary) have tried all kinds of work out regimes, everything from long sessions of cardio, to spinning, to yoga, and even half marathons. While I've seen marginal changes to my physique, I still hadn't gotten the results I was after. Then last April in a final (vain) attempt to look my best for my wedding, I signed up for a foundations class. Since April, I have slowly watched my body trim down and develop muscles I never knew I was capable of having

More importantly, I was completely surprised by the awesome community. Thank you Crossfit South Brooklyn for encouraging and guiding me down a path towards a body revelation. And lastly, thank you for enfolding me (and now my husband, Dima who is also a regular) into your awesome community. We are such big fans of the box that we decided to have a couple of wedding photos taken there. See a few others on the Flickr Page

Support the Brooklyn Rugby Club

Running a rugby club in NYC presents a number of challenges but funding is always our biggest challenge.  One of our biggest fundraisers is our Men of Brooklyn calendar.  The calendar is meant to be a cheeky take on the famous Stade Francis calendar of the famous professional French team.  Cheeky because, while some of us do CrossFit, we aren't built like Greek statues like they are.  It’s our first year doing the calendar and we've already sold over 100 pre-orders.

Those pranks are some of the meanest things I've ever seen. I would absolutely pee myself.

But Mary and Dima sure are sparkles of sunshine! Congratulations, you two!

The Raptor is funny. The bathroom thing is just wrong!

Congrats, Mary and Dimitri! You guys look great.

What's 3/2 muscle ups?

October 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJulian V.

that bathroom prank is messed up... the raptor is amazeballs. I always like to prank my students...keep the good ideas coming...unless it's scary dead women in bathrooms.

Congrats guys! Love these pics!!

I nearly died, watching the bathroom prank. That's just evil. The dinosaur one is brilliant.

10am (I love 10am) with Jess. WOD- somewhere around 25 mins with 20kg KB and all no-knee burpees, which is still a really big deal for me. Five rounds of anything is a lot. Those three minutes rest between rounds were sweet and the cool-down lap around the block felt amazing. Well, the cool air felt amazing.

Stayed after with Lisa to do some pull-ups and got some tips on kipping and toes-to-bar from Katie and Steve, our two magical performance folks. Thanks guys!!! These two things are very far away for me, but I have decided to at least start getting comfortable swinging on the bar. Have to start somewhere!!

@julianv, three halves of a muscle-up, obviously!

October 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTodd

Do you, Mary, promise to love, cherish and no rep Dima if he does not achieve full extension . . . (oh forget it)


October 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJR

Dino prank is hilarious! Bathroom prank is traumatizing, i'm crying for them!

October 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterFox

Thanks for the continued support and guys!

And I'm just going to say it, the platypus feeding totally melted my heart!

October 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMary

I watched the prank ones first, so I kept waiting for the platypus to crap all over the guy's hand or suddenly reveal a row of piranha teeth.

October 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKate R

WOD. Pood. Knee Burpees...near death. 23ish minutes or something.
Dinosaur Prank. Awesome.
Bathroom Prank. F-you. I'll never be able to pee in public again.
Platypus is officially my favorite animal. Ever.
@Luca. only the males are poisonous. if we get a shipment of females we're golden.

430 with Josh.

Finished in 19:28. Fastest round was the last one at 1:03. Slowest was the first - thanks to rope 'issues'. Finished that one in 2:04!

October 24, 2013 | Registered CommenterSamir Chopra

6:30 with Josh and Arturo... finished the "fitness WOD" aka "ab doom" in 22:46. Fastest round (2) was 1:57, slowest (5) 2:28 or so. Used a 28k kettle bell, which felt almost light, but also a little bit like I wanted to throw up on each of swings 76 through 125. Everything unbroken except for a few seconds breathing on the last round of burpees...

I didn't catch the name of the person next to me, but it was nice to have someone at almost exactly the same pace.

October 24, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterpcker

@DOs - I am incredibly éleet

October 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterFox

@pcker I think that was me? If so, you were smoking me by the end of it. :-)

22:57 with a 24kg bell, Russian swings. Speed deteriorated pretty rapidly in the later rounds. 1:57 - 2:00 - 2:10 - 2:19 - 2:31.

My right calf cramped up really bad on the cash out run. Dehydrated I guess? Oof.

Also, love these pics! Congrats you two.

October 24, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLaura Mc

Next Sunday I am running the ING NYC Marathon (soon to be "Tata NYC Marathon" - yes really). Who else is running? Anyone else looking to make open gym following the race for the Sunday metcon?
