CFSBK Doubles In Size: 608 Degraw Street
You may have heard recent rumors about a lease being signed after a very, very long search for additional space. We are so excited to officially announce that CFSBK will be expanding to a second, 5,000 square foot location mere feet across from the current gym. The intention of this expansion is to decrease average class sizes, create more options for programming, add new classes and workshops, and generally increase the quality of your member experience with us. We’ve poured our hearts into the gym and have been so grateful to build up a loyal following within our community. Building out the new space will require much more work, but this next chapter in our history continues the theme of responding to your needs and doing the best we can to give you the most effective and engaging training experience possible.
What would you be most excited to see in the new space?

News and Notes
- There are lots of new items in the Lost and Found, including lots of Oly shoes. Check it out here and here, claim your stuff!
- Because of the New York City Marathon on Sunday, 4th Avenue will be closed off and you will only be able to cross the street underground at 4th and Pacific, no swipe required (though this will still be a slow process). Please plan ahead!
- Daylight Saving Time ends at 2am this Sunday morning, meaning we gain an hour, so also plan ahead for that (or let your smartphone plan for you).
- Happy birthday, Alan C.!
