Good luck at the Dirty South Qualifiers, Zeke!

Zeke from CF East Decatur spent three days training with us while on vacation in NYC.   Training outside of your normal surroundings and with a different group of athletes can be an enriching experience.
One of the qualitative benefits of CrossFit is developing the ability to regularly go outside your own comfort zone.  Visiting other affiliates and signing up for local competitions is a great way to take that one step further and see how you stack up in an unfamiliar environment.  Chances are, you'll work a little harder and meet some great people.

Jeremy Fisher and Sal Manzo will be representing CrossFit South Brooklyn at the North East Qualifier for the 2009 CrossFit Games. To compete at the Games in California, they must place within the top 5 out of almost 200 competitors from 7 states.  They're going to need lots of community support both in class and at the Qualifier in May.  Lets all be sure to encourage their efforts as they continue their training!

Dutch Lowy Training Seminar at CrossFit Norcal

Later this month we have the pleasure of hosting Dutch Lowy's Trainer Development Seminar.  Margie and myself attended this seminar at CF NorCal last January and came away with some really great ideas and different perspectives on running an affiliate.  The seminar is based on Dutch's experiences traveling across the country observing various programs and differentiating between what works and what does not.  Dutch spends considerable time on proper programming, scaling and the differences between training someone to compete in CrossFit versus someone just looking to improve their health and longevity.  You'll also get to apply your skills by programing workouts for different objectives, leading small groups and putting together class outlines.  This is a great seminar for anyone interested in or already training other individuals, Level 1 trainers who want to take the Level 2 and anyone who just wants a broader perspective on CrossFit style strength and conditioning.
