Introducing CrossFit South Brooklyn "On Ramp" Classes
Are you a new athlete?  Do you have trouble keeping your knees out in a squat or your back set in a deadlift?  Are you fresh out of Foundations and not quite sure if you're ready for the demands of group classes? If so, our new On-Ramp class may be perfect for you.

The sole purpose of the On-Ramp program is to develop consistent technique and increased capacity so that new athletes can proceed into group classes with solid movement and training habits.  By focusing on truly mastering the fundamentals, developing proper movement strategies, and increasing strength and mobility, we'll provide you with the fitness base to move seamlessly and successfully into Group Classes. 

The key difference is that the On-Ramp classes purposefully take more time to review exercises, detail good training habits and limit intensity.  Most workouts will be done not for time in the interest of making you move better before you move faster.

The class meets 2x/week and is recommended as a 8-12 week cycle for potential participants. Attendance is open to all members and payment works exactly like your regular Group Class membership.  You may also mix On Ramp and Group Classes if your schedule doesnt afford you the time to come to both classes.

CFSBK On Ramp classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8pm and start on 7/27.

What was your first CrossFit WOD?


WOD 7.14.10

Today we'll spend 30 minutes finding your 1 rep max Turkish Get Up.  Not only is this is a benchmark lift for us, it will also come up at the next Subway Series event at CrossFit Virtuosity. Afterward, we'll work on your muscle-up.

Welcome back, Claire!

Congratulations to Brian Z for achieving his goal of getting up the rope as well as Sarah H and Jess F on their "Annie" PRs.

Good luck to Steph P and Christine G as they gear up for the NYC Triathlon this weekend!

The flat rate for Active Recovery is $15 regardless of contract type.  We've just switched it up so that you can now use A/R as one of your group classes.  The management (David) apologizes for the mix up.

We've combined next month's pull and upper body lift.  The following cycle will look like this:
Saturday  Overhead Squat + Metcon or assistance work
Sunday  Metcon
Monday  Clean and Jerk + Metcon or assistance work
Tuesday  -REST DAY-
Wednesday  Overhead Squat + Metcon or assistance work
Thursday  Metcon
Friday  -REST DAY-


WOD 7.12.10

Today we'll spend 30 minutes working on your Clean and Jerk technique, afterward we'll do some rope climbing.

Want a little Active Recovery?
Our Active Recovery class which meets Tuesdays at 6pm will now be available as one of your weekly sessions.  So if you've got a 3x per week contract you can use A/R as one of your classes.  Additionally, we'll extend the per class rate to A/R if you'd like to drop in on top of your Group Classes:
Drop In/2x week/3x week: $15
5x week: $10
