CFSBK Closed Friday Night and This Weekend
The gym will be closed Friday night and Saturday and Sunday as we will be hosting Mark Rippetoe for the Starting Strength Seminar. As an alternative, we're offering some fun off location workouts for all our members adventerous enough to take their fitness outside the box. On Saturday we'll be running a track WOD in Red Hook and on Sunday we'll be organizing some flag football in Prospect Park. Peep the deets below:
Saturday Track Workout
CFSBK will be hosting a remote Track workout on 9/7/13 in Red Hook. This will coincide with the weekend the gym is closed for the Starting Strength Seminar with Mark Rippetoe. We will meet up at 9:30 am by the bleachers at the Red Hook Track (Hicks and Bay) for an outdoor running and body weight workout with your CrossFit buddies. Football (aka , Soccer) is usually going on down the block and the food trucks (tacos!) should still be around for post-WOD replenishment and entertainment. Show up on time and plan to spend about an hour or so warming up and WODding with us. RSVP to christian(AT)crossfitsouthbrooklyn.com so we know how many folks to plan for. If all you know about Red Hook is the Ikea, you've been missing out. Come explore this great part of Brooklyn!
Sunday Flag Football and Social
Are you ready for some football? We will be hosting an informal flag football game in Prospect Park on Sunday, September 8th. We had a similar gathering a few years ago and it was great fun, despite leaving many of our weekend warriors hobbling around for the next week! Plan to meet at the Long Meadow field around 10AM, although we may have to move to find a good open space (check the blog for updates!) Bring picnic blankets, food, drink, babies, dogs, friends and your GAME FACES! This event is open to everyone, even folks who just want an excuse to hang out with the park and drink beer while people chase each other around. We will probably play until around 2 or 3 pm depending on how the day goes.
Email noah(AT)crossfitsouthbrooklyn if you're interested in helping set up/break down or have any questions.
Consistency and accountability
Consistency and accountability are two of the most important components for creating success with your fitness goals. Read the two articles below and discuss in the comments section ways you've improved your ability to commit to long term habit formation. Conversely, if you're struggling with either component in your nutrition or training, see what's worked for other people and attempt to adopt their strategies or find an accountably partner to help keep you on track.
