Quote of the week:
"As far as training partners go, if you run with the lame, you will develop a limp. So only train with those who have the same goals as your own. Everyone can't be a world champ, but we can all be better."
- Louie Simmons, The Westside Barbell Book of Methods

Needless to say it was an incredible weekend.  We received phenomenal instruction from all the trainers and had the honor of having Coach Glassman speak at length about a variety of experiences. Hosting a Level 1 certification has been a goal of mine since the park days and after this weekend it's safe to say that it will not be our last. A big thanks to Pat, EC, Adrian, Rob, Chuck, Maggie and Jason for the amazing job that they did with the cert, everyone I talked to came away informed, energized and with a clearer understanding of why it is we do what we do. I'd also like to congratulate all the new Level 1 CrossFit trainers and encourage them to come back to our box anytime, we loved having you and hope to see you all again soon. Finally, I want to thank the incredible group of people at CFSBK who made this all possible.  Shane, Jacinto, Margie, Jeremy, and everyone else involved not only with the cert but with our community at large should feel proud to be part of something very special.  You guys have all changed my life and I feel completely honored to be your coach.
