News and Notes
- Please remember that all classes are canceled on Sunday, Open Gym is extended to start at 5pm, and we still need a few judges to volunteer their time to help run the competition. Please contact David [at] CrossFitSouthBrooklyn.com with “Subway Series” as the subject line if you’re interested.
- Feeling like you could be a bit more limber? Check out Yoga for Athletes with Coach Whitney (aka one of our favorite pescatarians) tonight at 7:30pm.
- CFSBK member Amanda Mc. wrote a super cool article about David’s journey with CFSBK for About.com, called “How One CrossFit Affiliate Owner Built a Thriving Business.” Share it with your CrossFit friends!
Want to Explore the World of the Rings?
This primer class with Ken H. will introduce participants to the various aspects of the rings: the different grips, above the rings, below, swinging and still rings. We will also touch on how to take care of your hands and taping techniques. We will go over basic positions, movements, and strength holds.
Time: THIS SATURDAY, August 23, 2-3:30pm
Buy-in: 10 strict push ups and 1 toes-to-bar or knees-to-bar.
The class is capped at 10 participants, so don’t think twice! Register Here!
Call for CFSBK Artists!
Ever wonder what CFSBK would look like if it transformed into an art gallery? Well, you might have the opportunity to find out! We are considering hosting the very first CFSBK Open Gallery this fall, which would involve displaying a variety of art created by our members, right here at the gym. If you are a visual artist (even if your art is just a hobby!) and are a member at CFSBK, we want to hear from you.
In order to move forward (and convince David this is a good idea), we must hear from at least 10-15 artists by August 31 who are willing to commit to participating. The aim of the evening isn’t to sell the work of our artists (though if that happens, great!), but to showcase the often hidden talents of our members, bring our community together in a novel way, and perhaps be the first CrossFit gym ever to curate an art show.
The more diversity of mediums the better—painting, photography, film, collage, printmaking, design, textiles, installations, or something we haven’t heard of yet. (We have a 180” projector that can be used for video-based art.) If you make cool shit that would look nice on our walls and want to participate, please email Kate at katharine [at] crossfitsouthbrooklyn.com by August 31. Your email MUST INCLUDE 2-3 images of pieces you would consider showing or pieces that are similar to what you would create for the show.
