Rest Day

Shane and Lucy McGrath

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!!

CFSBK Beats the Streets
This Saturday at 1:30pm, members of SBK will participate in the first annual Beat the Streets fundraiser, a special WOD benefiting Steve's Club, an affiliate in NJ with a unique mission. Steve's Club is a non-profit serving the youth of Camden, NJ, a city ranked as one of America's most dangerous.

Funds from this event will go towards securing a Box that Steve's Club can call its own. For more information, and a full description of the workout, check out this link.

So far, we have two teams: Margie and Nicole, and Jeremy and Sal.
If you are interested in participating, find a partner and email before Friday.
If you aren't able to participate, please consider making a donation to Steve's Club. Make sure to mention you are affiliated with SBK and, if you'd like, which SBK member you are sponsoring.

The event will take place outside, across from the Lyceum. We'll gather upstairs at 1:15pm and take our equipment outside. Please note that we will NOT hold the event if it is raining.

It's a fun WOD for a great affiliate, so we hope you can join for the workout or just to cheer everyone on!!
