CFSBK GYM Etiquette Pt. 2
Know your teammates.
Everyone who trains with us is part of team SBK.  It's easy to get comfortable and stick with the people you're familiar with but as we all know CrossFit isn't about being comfortable. Take the first step and introduce yourself to someone you haven't met before, chances are if they're doing CrossFit you probably have similar masochistic personalities. This is especially important with newer athletes, what we do can be a little intimidating at first so it's nice to show them that there are REAL people moving those barbells.  Theres absolutly no reason everyone shouldn't know each other!

How do you monitor your sleep patterns?

Soft Tissue Profile
Locate and record any trigger points. Rate painful areas on a scale of 1-3 based on sensitivity and see if you can take them all down to 1 or below over the next 2 weeks.

CrossFit South Brooklyn is 1 year old today!
Our first WOD was on September 9th of 2007 at St. Mary's Playground in Carroll Gardens.  I got there early with high hopes, my PVC and rings only to find that the gates were locked. Crap. Jamie and Christina showed up a little later and were met with lots of apologies and a little WOD that included some "PVC Thrusters" and rows with the rings tied to the outside of the playground.
There have been a few improvements made to the program since day one and there is still a lot left to be accomplished.  I can't emphasize how grateful i am to all the people who have stuck with this little experiment and made it what it is today.  Anyone who walks through our doors knows that CFSBK is more than a gym, much more.  The community that we have developed is truely something very special and no description could ever do it justice, it simply has to be experienced.
I'm looking forward to all the new experiences, friends and PRs we'll all be making in the next year.
321 GO!

CFSBK GYM Etiquette Pt. 1
The pious CrossFitter always cleans up after themselves.
Not only do they return their equipment, they also put it back in the correct position so that the next person to use it can easily locate the proper weights. Cleaning up after oneself also extends to picking up any bottles, athletic tape, towels or shirts one might otherwise leave behind. If you see something that may not be yours but is clearly garbage, please do everyone a favor and throw it out.
