The Spiking Tacos took second place in Big City Volleyball’s Social League last night at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6. They were slightly upset that the winning team won all of the prizes, which included beach towels and backpacks, but they were happy with their progress throughout the season. Go Tacos!

Introducing: Anti-Gravity: An hour-long gymnastics strength, skill, and conditioning class with Coaches Noah and Arturo
Is your kip krap? Are you muscle ups more like muscle downs? Are your pistols mere pop guns? Coaches Noah and Arturo have designed Anti-Gravity: an hour-long gymnastics strength, skill, and conditioning class.
The class will focus on the gymnastics skill and strength components that are most commonly demanded in CrossFit workouts, using a variety of skill exercises, progressions, weighted and strict practice, and other techniques to teach, develop, and perfect your bodyweight movements. Our goal is to improve not only skill, but gymnastic work capacity and muscular endurance.
When: Tuesdays at 7:30PM and Sundays at 2PM (starting this Tuesday, July 21st)
Cost: This counts as a regular group class
Each class will consist of skill work, strength development, conditioning, and flexibility training. Every class will include dedicated strength work and a WOD, so it can stand alone and fully take the place of one of your group classes for the day.
If you are a brave soul who wants to take Anti-Gravity along with group class, please ask Noah or Arturo first and make sure to take group class before Anti-Gravity.
