Undead Jazz Festival at CFSBK
On Saturday, June 25th from 8pm-3am CFSBK will be one of the hosts for the 2011 Undead Jazz Festival. Founded in June 2010 the Undead Jazzfest is new kind of festival, bringing together an incredible array of artists from the new jazz and improvised music community currently exploding in New York City. With no headliners, affordable tickets, unorthodox venues and no drink minimums, the Undead Jazzfest aims to shake the public perception of what jazz can be today, celebrating the incredible music being made in a setting that is inviting to both the veterans and curious new fans.

Thank you, CrossFit!
As many of you know, I spent the last 12 days in Ecuador with my roomate Mike. Our trip included hikes through the Andes, a three day adventure in the Amazon which included cutting down 5 trees with a machete to make a boat and lots of weighted (back pack) sprints to bus stations. At about 5 hours into our 10 hour hike though the Andes I realized that without CrossFit everything we did would have been much, much harder. It's a nice reminder that while we train for the sake of training and for the fun of it, we shouldn't forget to use that fitness to adventure and play. It doesnt matter if that means chasing your kids through Prospect Park, biking to Coney Island or participating in recreational sports leagues.
What kinds of non-CrossFit physical activity do you participate in or would like to this summer?
