Row at about 70% RPE. Keep your stroke rating low, your pulls strong and dial in your techinque.
Here is the next installment in our new series called Behind the Desk, about our beloved and much appreciated Front Desk staff. These CrossFitters take care of the important duties of checking in our members, handling walk-ins, tidying up after classes, and so many other things that it would take forever to list them. They are the glue that holds this gym together.
Full name: Whitney Hubbard
Where were you born and where did you grow up:
Born in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Grew up in Lake Forest, Illinois — a suburb of Chicago.
First album that you loved:
Either Ace of Base’s The Sign or Mariah Carey’s Music Box
What are you up to when you’re not at 597 Degraw Street:
Well… between the front desk, teaching Yoga for Athletes, and actually working out I spend quite a lot of time at CFSBK! Beyond that, I teach yoga in Cobble Hill and Park Slope (at studios and privately in my home and others’ homes), walk and play with my recently-adopted dog Penny, and cook as many delicious meals and treats as possible. I recently became a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer and am also currently in a yoga teacher mentorship program; I’m continually interested in how to best coach/instruct people in their pursuits of health and fitness.
“Ask me about that time I…”:
…raced Coach Noah in “suicide” wind sprints in the Key Foods parking lot after the Fight Gone Bad 2012 after-party.
Earth is about to implode but aliens on a previously undiscovered planet named Euripides want to preserve one artifact from humans. What would you offer them?
A foam-roller. Mobilize your alien business!!
Favorite shade of blue:
Teal… the blue that’s approaching green, like when sunlight shines through a wave that’s about to break.
