SBK Athletes interested in ordering kettlebells with Jack:
Muscle Driver offers a 15% discount on the shipping when they get an order of 6 or more. The normal shipping, incidentally is not that expensive- a 1 pood shipped to Brooklyn is about $14. However, if there is interest,  I can put together an order which we can ship to SBK. Anyone interested can drop me an email at jlevavi(AT)
If anyone would like to see how a Muscle Driver Kettlebell feels, we have two if their "Black Series" bells in house already.

CrossFit South Brooklyn Affiliate Team

Sameer and Dan have volunteered to organize any athletes interested in competing for the Affiliate Cup at this year's CrossFit Games in Aromas, CA.

Here are some logistics they've worked out already:
- Everyone competing at the qualifiers can be on the team if they don't qualify

- We'll hold a vote for the remaining slots

- The teams officially consists of 3 men and 3 women
- Sameer has kindly already registered CFSBK, so don't worry that the Affiliate Registration is already Sold Out

If you're interested in being on the team, please email Sameer(AT)

Weather Nerds Rejoice!
You guys may have noticed the temperature and humidity information we've been adding to the daily posts.  This is thanks to Anne's generous donation of an indoor weather gauge so that we can track what the conditions in the Lyceum are.  It will be interesting to track performance as the temperature goes UP over the next couple months.  Thanks Anne!

Happy Birthday, Charmel!!
