CF Open Sectionals 2011 is a Wrap!

A huge thanks to all the members of Team SBK who represented CFSBK by participating in 6 incredibly challenging WODs over the last seven weeks and to all the friends, family and fellow members who supported them during their journey.  The last sectionals event was this past Saturday and Team SBK housed it!  Congratulations to Steph P. and Jessica Fox for their 1st and 2nd place finishes at the event!  Thanks to everyone who made the last seven weeks a huge success.  We look forward to next year!

Congratulations Strength Cyclers!
Great work last night to everyone who participated in the Total.  Please post your loads and experience over the last 8 weeks to comments.

Advanced Handstand Class
Ken Haller will be teaching an advanced handstand class on May 5th at 8pm.  This class is for folks who feel comfortable kicking up without a spotter and staying inverted for a few seconds.  We'll review different methods for achieving a fully integrated hollow body position as well as inversions on parallettes and rings. This clinic is limited to 10 participants and is free of charge.  Please email David(at) to RSVP. First come first serve.

Who is Ken Haller?
Ken was a nationally competitive gymnast through high school and college. After finishing his collegiate gymnastics career, he coached and judged for eight years at the club level. His students went on to become regional, national champions, and perform for Cirque du Soleil. Looking for something to keep active and in shape, Ken was drawn to rock climbing and then realizing the need to augment the strength and mental conditioning that rock climbing takes, he added yoga to the mix. Recently, to put his balance and strength to the test, surfing and snowboarding are now new activities that he is trying to master.

Good Luck Strength Athletes!
Good luck to all the athletes competing in the CrossFit Total today as part of their graduation from Coach Jeremy's Strength cycle.  Come on down to cheer on and support everyone as they test the last 8 weeks of lifting.  Festivities start at 6pm!

What are you doing this weekend? Oh, just going to the CROSSFIT PROM
Do it! Ask him/her/it out to the CrossFit Prom this Saturday at CrossFit Virtuosity. Don't have a date? Come alone, come with friends, bring your parents! The point is to come out and have some fun.  CFV has organized a prom committee for the event and we'd love to see a big turn out.  For more information and to RSVP, click here.

Thanks Josh Martinez!
You may have noticed the large wooden platforms in the gym.  Local hero, Josh M has built the gym new Wall Ball and Handstand Push-Up stations. Full installation will be completed later in the week.  Expect to be inverted soon!
