CFSBK beyond The Lyceum

Learning a new activity or sport is at the top of the Crossfit pyramid. It challenges your body and mind in unexpected ways, preventing you from stagnating as an athlete. As CrossFitters, we are already fans of variability and functionality in our workouts, so let's take that interest beyond the walls of the Lyceum and play with skill-based, real world activities.

Brian Scott has offered to lead us in a series of monthly SBK Fieldtrips to mix things up and get our bodies and brains moving in new ways. We've generated a great list of activities, including kayaking, horseback riding, bouldering, kickball, cross-country skiing and more.

For our inaugural event, we are going ice skating!
When: Friday, January 2, 6-9pm
Where: Wollman Rink, Prospect Park
Cost: $5 for skating; $6.50 for Skate rental.
If you have activities to propose, or lead us in, please feel free to suggest them Brian and/or Margie.

Save the Date
On January 31st we'd like to have a party celebrating one year at the Lyceum and the community that has developed around SBK.  Everyone who has ever trained with us is welcome to join in on the food, drinks, music and Hooverball!!
