News and Notes
- Do you hate and fear workouts that involve rowing? Do you secretly love them but don’t want to admit it? Join Coach Nick‘s CFSBK CRASH-Beasts and train for the World Indoor Rowing Championship! The first technique clinic is this Saturday, November 11th, and there’s still time to sign up. See the event page for details.
- As if there weren’t already enough cool stuff on our humble Gowanus block, an axe-throwing venue called Kick Axe will be moving in across the street in mid-December!
- We now have another set of Rogue speed ropes in 608 to match our set in 597! We also organized the weight belts in both gyms and set aside any that didn’t have names on them. If you can’t find your belt, it’s in the crawlspace near the lifters at 608. Please write your name on it before returning it to the downstairs storage spaces. See the front desk if you need a marker or help with anything else!
- We’re hosting the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Seminar this weekend, which means we’ll have to cancel a few classes.

On Sunday, November 12th, these classes are cancelled: 8am group class, 10am CrossFit Preschool, 11am CrossFit Kids, 11am Active Recovery.
