CFSBK at the 5th Ave Fair Today!
As you know,
we are participating in the 5th Ave Fair today from 11am-6pm.
We'll be stationed next to Bierkraft between Union and Berkeley. We want
to show Park Slope what a bunch of badasses you are, so we're planning
some demo WODs throughout the day. If you want to get your workout on in
a totally different environment (unknown and unknowable), we'll be
running them at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm. They'll be short and
sweaty.

Dharma
Dharma learns how to swing the Kettlebell

The front door has been sticking lately.  If you get to class and it seems locked.. it's not. PULL HARD!!

We've decided to lift the Burpee Penalty for latecomers. Taking extra time to do burpees only further disrupts class and has created some non-posi vibes... and you know, at SBK we're all about posi-vibes. Moving forward, if you're more than 10 minutes late you must ask the coach if it's okay for you to join the running class. 

There are a lot of clothes in the coat room, many of which have been sitting there for a long time.  If you've got something in there you wouldn't like removed, please pick it up before Wednesday night.  We're going to clean out the closet on Wednesday after classes.

Monday, May 31st is Memorial Day and you know what that means at SBK... MURPH!  Does everyone have the day off?  We'd love to get the community together in the afternoon, Murph and then get our grill on.  What say you?!
Check out this Group Shot from last year's Memorial Day Murph

CFSBK at the 5th Ave Street Fair!
This Sunday CFSBK will have a table at the 5th ave fair next to our good buddies, Bierkraft.  We'll be there from about 9am-6pm if anyone would like to stop by and say hello.  In addition to having some information out, we thought it would be fun to do some quick WODs throughout the day.  If you're interested in helping out with this please email margie(at)CrossFitSouthBrooklyn.com. 

Were also looking for a 6-8ft table to display our stuff on.  If anyone has one they'd be willing to lend for the day please let us know!
