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.

Level 1 Certification at CFSBK

Attention South Brooklyn Athletes:
All classes this weekend will be canceled for the L1 certification.  Our normal schedule will resume on Monday.

Level 1 Attendees:
Here is some information which you may find useful.  The first link lists contact and travel information as well as parking garage, food and bank listings.  If you would prefer to park on the street there will be more availability towards Third Ave. as opposed to Fourth Ave. which is more commercial. The second link is a neighborhood map so that you can easily find your way around.  Please don't hesitate to contact any of the numbers listed in the first link if you would like more information.  You could also post a question on the comments section of this post and someone will get back to you ASAP.

Needless to say SBK represented well at the event. Sal had an amazing showing and took 2nd place overall. His time on the first WOD was 7:27 and 9:11 on the second for a total time of 16:38.  The entire event was a great time where we got to make new friends, compete against them and then enjoy a Zone Friendly catered lunch and dinner. I strongly encourage everyone to come out to CrossFit events when they come up, they're always a lot of fun and a great way to gauge your fitness against a wider pool of athletes.

This weekend Jeremy, Sal and myself will be participating in the Mid-Atlantic Hopper Challenge.  CrossFit events like these are a great opportunity to compete with new people in a new environment. I encourage everyone to step out of their comfort zone and plan on competing in the next challenge that comes up.
