- There is No Open Gym tonight.
All are welcome to attend our second community potluck and LFPB Challenge awards ceremony. Not only will we crown the top 3 male and female winners, we’ll also be doing a raffle and quick talk about why we do the challenge every year and how to stay motivated and accountable moving forward. As mentioned yesterday, I was unable to secure the bouncy castle (sorry!) but we’ll create a little kids area for the event.
Start time: 7:30pm
End time: 9:30-10:00pm
Civilian Military Combine This September
Looking for an opportunity to put your Crossfit training to the test? CFSBK is putting a team together to compete at this year’s Civilian Military Combine taking place at Aviator Sports and Recreations on Saturday, September 14th!
Here’s a description of what you’d be signing up for:
“The CMC competition is broken down into three components to test strength, endurance and agility. Race day structure will consist of “The PIT” (lifting element) into a 5 -7 mile race with strategically placed military obstacles. This structure is what separates the Civilian Military Combine from all other races and competitions. The PIT is designed to be the great equalizer by leveling the playing field between power athletes and endurance runners to determine the best overall conditioned athlete. This race structure has been carefully created, refined and reviewed by the top strength and conditioning coaches from the CrossFit community, United States Armed Forces and USA Triathlon Organization Race Directors.”
Venue: Aviator Sports and Recreations
Location: 3159 Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11234
