Announcing the Active Recovery Class at CFSBK
This class is designed to give your muscles and mind a rest. For an hour you'll be guided through a combination of yoga, soft tissue work, flexibility techniques and traditional calisthenics. Perfect as a rest day for the heavy hitters or as a light days work for beginners and those of us somewhere in the middle. This class is also great for non-CrossFitters who could use a little soft tissue love.

Date: Tuesdays at 8pm
Price: $20 drop-in rate or 1 class on your CFSBK punch card
 
*Participants are encouraged to bring their own yoga mat. If you don't own one, never fear...we've got some mat space for you to flex, bend, and relax on.

Rest Day Open Gym
We're starting an "open gym" format on rest days at CFSBK. This gives our members an opportunity to make-up a previous workout or spend some dedicated time on a personal weakness.  Due to the technical nature of the Power Snatch, Tuesdays will also include led O-Lifting work starting at 5pm and 6pm. 
When you come into the gym, you'll see a posted warm-up and the previous and following day's workouts.

*All members must clear what they plan on doing with the staffed coaches before beginning to train.

Tuesdays:
5pm Power Snatch or Open Gym
6pm Power Snatch or Open Gym
7pm Open Gym until 8pm.

Fridays:
5:30-7:30 Open Gym

Here are some insights into yesterday's Rest Day question from the September 2003 free issue of The CrossFit Journal.  If you like this article and one's like it, check out the thick green binder in the library.  It's got tons of CrossFit Journal articles from 2002-2004.  No reading in the bathroom!

Thank you to Jamie D for helping clean and paint the bathrooms yesterday.  We've got some temporary "shelving" in there for you to put your stuff on while you change as well. 
Please post to comments what else you'd like to see in the bathrooms.

Rest Day

Turkish Get Up

Due to an ongoing event at SBK, Saturday's 10am CrossFit Group class will be canceled on 3/6, 3/13, 3/20 and 3/27.  Classes at 8am, 9am, 11am and 12p as well as the teaser are on as usual.  We will resume 10am group classes April 3rd.

Check out our local Lululemon Athletica's CrossFit South Brooklyn window display up all this month!  Whitney, Christina Jessy and Sam did an amazing job representing us! Don't forget to stop in and say hello.

What do "Angie", "Cindy", "Chelsea" and "Barbara" all have in common?  How are they different workouts?
